Name: Madtree Brewing
Location: Cincinnati, OH
What you need to know: Founded in 2013, Madtree has combined tradition and innovation in developing their beer portfolio. Their continued growth led them to open a new facility in early 2017. Among their many taps are a few core beers (including the Happy Amber) as well as a number of experimental beers. In addition, they have partnered with a local farm to produce their own hard cider, and a local distillery to have cocktails in their taproom and barrels for aging their beers. These steps have given them a dedicated local community of fans and allowed them to distribute in Ohio, Kentucky, and Tennessee.
