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.

Brittany

Brand Manager

Brittany has been a part of the craft beer industry since 2015 and joined the Commonhouse crew in early 2020. Most days you're likely to find her behind the camera - filming fun behind the scenes moments in the brewhouse, making silly videos, capturing the Taphouse team in action, and taking many, many, many photos of beer. She didn't think it would be possible to have more photos of beer than of her dog, but alas, it is. With a background in non-profit management, and many years working with non-profit organizations at local tech company, Blackbaud, Brittany was especially excited to help launch and grow our unCOMMONly GOOD beer series that gives back to local community impact organizations.
Favorite Beer: Too many! But top 3 Publick Helles, Witherbeer, and Springbok Stout!
Love to Support: A few of the organizations Brittany loves to support are Park Circle Cares, Southern Tails for Precious Paws and The Boon Project.

Ryan

Taphouse Manager

A long-time lover of craft beer, Ryan has traveled the country visiting breweries for the past decade, collecting friends and stories along the way. During that time, he began homebrewing as a hobby and first joined the craft beer industry professionally in 2018. Outside of this industry, the majority of his career - until joining Commonhouse Aleworks in 2021 - was spent in the private security field, managing various teams and systems. Most would describe Ryan as someone that has never met a stranger. He has a passion and respect of life, community and all that craft beer can represent.
Favorite Beer: Publick Helles…because, Prost! Gold Pass…”The look of it, the taste of it, the smell of it, the texture…”
Love to Support: Any which supports animals.


Bradford

Sales Manager

Bradford joined the Commonhouse team in June of 2020. He is a USAF veteran who also brings years of food & beverage as well as Craft Beer distribution experience to the team. Most days you can catch up with him in the Georgia and South Carolina markets, strengthening existing partnerships and building new relationships. Just like Ryan, Bradford has never met a stranger, just a new friend he wasn't acquainted with yet. When not on the road for Commonhouse, Bradford refills his bucket by spending quality time with his family and playing soccer in one of the local Charleson leagues.
Favorite Beer: Oleander & Park Circle Pale Ale are probably my 2 favorites followed by Air is Salty...and Pierce the Night and Broad Path and Cloud Down. (Why pick just one??)
Love to Support: Habitat for Humanity


Harrison

Brewer

Harrison French is a brewer here at Commonhouse, he and his dog Chaco recently moved to Park Circle all the way from Minnesota. When he's not brewing beer you can typically find Harrison adventuring outdoors with Chaco. Whether it's running, hiking, camping, or paddleboarding, the two do just about everything together. Harrison is excited to be part of the Commonhouse team and hopes that you'll come have a beer! There's a pretty good chance you'll even see Chaco hanging out on the patio!
Favorite Beer: His favorite Commonhouse beer is White Point Lager - clean, crisp, and perfectly lagered, making it a great beer for any time of day.
Love to Support: Harrison enjoys sharing his love of Ultimate Frisbee with others. Back in Minnesota he gave back to the community by volunteering as a High School Ultimate coach through the Minnesota Ultimate organization. Now he hopes to get involved in coaching a local team here in Charleston!

Justice

Justice has been in the beer industry for 3 years, and a part of our team since last year. She first fell in love with the brewing industry after taking a microbiology course in college!

The welcoming community full of creative people that are eager to collaborate and learn from each other is another highlight for Justice in working in this industry.
