MadTree Winter Bonanza!



Hey guys! So my blog is going to have a lot of postings about beer this week and next week cause it’s Beerfest season baby! This post in particular, however, is about my favorite brewery, MadTree and their three year anniversary that happened over the weekend. Prepare yourself for rather blurry photos and me-gushing about how much I love this place, but how claustrophobic I felt once I was there.

MadTree is definitely my favorite brewery in Cincinnati. I do love all of my other Cincinnati breweries, but MadTree holds the key to my heart. I think it was one of the first craft beers I have ever had. I mean fricken Rubus Cacao is the beer of dreams and legends (Pictured on the wooden table above). My best friend and I look forward to Rubus now since our first sip last year at Beerfest. Rubus is a blend of chocolatey, raspberry goodness that makes any stout lover a fan immediately. I have to admit, I wasn’t AS big of a fan as the canned version, but when I had it on draft at MadTree on Saturday I practically cried. It was amazing.

Anyways, this post isn’t going to be completely about my devotion to MadTree stouts, it will be about the Winter Bonanza! First off, I had to park about a half a mile away from MadTree, it was packed. We took a shuttle bus over to the brewery where things were hopping… well not hopping because there were over a thousand people there, but you get my drift. There was wall to wall people. Beers that were set to be tapped at a certain hour were gone in minutes. I mean it was chaos. We also had a Bones Burger, which we waited an hour for. This sounds like a lot of complaining, I’m attempting to not sound that way. The burger was fantastic and the beer was delectable but I think MadTree didn’t expect the pandemonium they received. I know that they’re in the process of building a new MadTree in Oakley, which I’m eager for, so I will definitely cut them a break.

So if you’re bad with crowds, you might want to pass on the Winter Bonanza next year, but I highly recommend the brewery and the atmosphere MadTree presents in general. I have boasted about them a lot before, but they really are a sight to see, and drink to!
