Meet the Founders
Christian Weber – Co-Founder/Head Brewer – Christian is the son in the father/son brewing team. He began his beer journey in 2005 as a home brewer in college and was taken on as an apprentice (another old world tradition) at a brewery in New Hampshire during grad school. After spending a few years working for an environmental nonprofit, Christian returned to his roots and opened Common Roots Brewing Company with his dad, Bert. Christian is currently the head brewer at CRBC and leads the creative process of recipe and product development. He and Bert work together to manage the day-to-day brewery operations and sales.

Bert Weber – Co-Founder – Growing up with parents from Germany, good beer has always been part of his family heritage. “Delicious beer has been part of the fabric of our family for as long as I can remember,” recalls Bert. Upon retiring from his 30-year career as a high school teacher, Bert was ready for a new adventure. Bert’s background in horticulture and design fueled the transformation of the warehouse building at 58 Saratoga Avenue. The inviting atmosphere of the CRBC beer garden and taproom are the direct products of Bert’s creative vision. Email Bert
