Last weekend I finally had a chance to get over to MadTree Brewing’s new taproom to try some of their stuff. Enough has been written about them that I’m not sure I need to add more in terms of a write-up or beer review, so I’ll just post a few pictures I took while I was there. I will note that I really liked the reuse of a lot of items in their taproom (doors turned into table tops, for instance). As for the beer, I had a sampler, all of which I enjoyed. I also got to talk briefly with Kenny for the first time I person and he filled me in on some things coming up.
My only gripe is that I would like to see the hop profile vary a tad between their beers. I understand going for a distinct profile across their brand, but the heavy use of Chinook and Cascade/Centennial made everything except the Gnarly Brown almost feel like a variation on the same beer. Overall, though, their initial lineup is a strong offering and with a tad more variety, I would put them among one of the better breweries in the Cincinnati area.
