our Talented Team

Brittany

Taphouse and Social Media Manager

Brittany has been a part of the craft beer industry since 2015 and joined our team in early 2020. Most days you’re much more likely to find her behind the camera than behind the bar, but she always loves getting the chance to pour pints and chat with guests when she’s not busy behind the scenes running social, planning events and designing merch.
Favorite Beer: Too many. But top 3 from this past year would be Publick Helles, Witherbeer, and Springbok Stout.
Favorite Local Charity: A few of the organizations Brittany loves to support are Park Circle Cares, Southern Tails for Precious Paws and The Boon Project.

John

Head Brewer

After completing undergraduate degrees in Biology, Chemistry, and marketing, John did his formal brewing training at the Siebel Institute. He started brewing professionally in 2014 and came on board at Commonhouse in 2019. Most days you can find him brewing (duh), but also nerding out on spreadsheets, increasing efficiencies, and fermentation times. To translate: making better beer faster.
Favorite Beer: Cloud Down and Birra Magnifico
Favorite Local Charity: I’m from Memphis so St. Jude’s is a big one for me, and as a former teacher, any organizations that support literacy are top of my list.

Pearce Fleming

Proprietor

Pearce Fleming is an accomplished and award-winning homebrewer. In addition to his homebrewing experience, Pearce has completed the Institute of Brewing & Distilling’s General Certificate in Brewing exam. Outside of brewing, Pearce has served in healthcare administration, been responsible for leading one of the largest healthcare consultancies in the country, as well as developed multiple quality, education, and wellbeing technology platforms serving patients, providers, insurers, and employers. Pearce’s family roots lie in rural South Carolina and the mountain’s of western North Carolina. He was often entertained in his youth by his Grandaddy’s stories of running shine from his home in the mountains to the state capital of Raleigh to help with expenses while attending North Carolina State University. His grandfather always laughed about the time he was caught and hauled in front of the school’s disciplinary board, saying, “Little did the President of the University know that nine of the ten people on the board were my regular customers.” True to form, Pearce’s father’s first words when told of the plan for Commonhouse, “Well, you know you’re going to have to pay the Revenuers their due.”
Favorite Beer: While I love all of our beer, you are most likely to find me enjoying one of our hop forward offerings, especially our West Coast IPA, Looking East.
