GRANGER, Ind.--- He's barely been out of the hospital a week, but this inspirational man is already back at work, brewing beer at the Bare Hands Brewery in Granger.

Chris Gerard suffered a brain injury earlier this month after hitting his head on concrete.

He doesn't have insurance, but the community has already raised more than $20,000 to help in his recovery.

His family posted on Facebook that he's quickly getting back to normal life.

Today, he brewed his first batch of beer since the accident.
