Two Years Ago…

By FoundersMessages

We can’t thank you all enough for being a part of this journey with us…

Two years ago today, our world was turned upside down when our original Taproom and Brewery at 58 Saratoga Avenue was destroyed by a fire. While we cannot suppress the devastation and uncertainty that arose that day, we will never be able to quantify the outpouring of love and support. That’s what keeps us going and continues to motivate us to do what we love – using our beer as a conduit for building community. To all of you who have been a part of this passion project thus far and to the new community members we welcome everyday, we are who we are because of you.  Just wait, the best is yet to come. From our family to yours, thank you for your continued support, compassion and inspiration.

Reflecting on the Season

By FoundersMessages

With just a few days until the Christmas holiday and only a few short weeks remaining in 2020, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on what has been a truly incredible year. We at Common Roots have been met with the joys of opening our new facility, the trepidations of the pandemic landscape, and humble gratitude for the continuous support shown by our community built on beer.

While this year’s season of celebration may feature new traditions and re-imagined holiday gatherings, we hope you take this time to recount the blessings of the year and are looking forward to 2021 with the same optimism and impassioned desire for camaraderie and community as we are. We thank you for making Common Roots part of your holiday traditions (both new and old) and we look forward to times ahead when we can celebrate with our entire community in our home at the 58 Saratoga Avenue Taproom.

We wish you and your families a safe, restful and joyous holiday season. We raise our glasses to you for allowing us to enjoy our community built on beer for another year. Cheers to many more and Happy Holidays!

Warmest regards,

Bert and Christian
