Episode 232 - Christian Weber, Common Roots Brewing
Happy Monday, Thieves! If you hang out at breweries long enough you'll start to hear about the camaraderie that exists among the brewers and owners. This isn't just lip service. So many of them are actually friends while being competitors. There aren't a lot of other industries where that's common. They brew together, travel together, and drink together. They are also quick to jump in to help when someone is in need.
Our accomplice today has experienced this first hand. When Christian Weber's Common Roots Brewing Co. went up in flames earlier this year, the last bits of fire weren't even out before brewers rushed in to help. Together with the local community, and beer fans from across the country, the brewery was able to set up a fundraising campaign that has kept employees going through the down time and to get Common Roots brewing again, all while building a whole new brewery.
Christian walks us through that fateful night, talks about what he was able to save, and what he hopes the future holds. Plus, we dangle the hope of another live show that Justin needs to coordinate. Tune in and let us know what you think!
