private events

A Common Roots event is all about treating your guests to award winning beer and locally sourced fare in a modern-rustic space. We provide a fun upscale vibe without all the fuss. Relax by the fireplace, kick back in an Adirondack chair, enjoy a balcony view, and effortlessly entertain your guests. We offer both semi-private and fully private spaces that can accommodate a variety of gathering sizes and styles, whatever the occasion.
