I finally made it down to MadTree Brewing Company this past Sunday. I have been wanting to visit their tasting room since it opened in April, just a couple of days after my daughter was born. However I haven’t had much free time to do so with two little ones keeping us busy. Fortunately I needed somewhere to watch the Bengals game Sunday and it just so happens that there was an Alzheimer benefit going on at the brewery at the same time.

The brewery is just a ten minute drive from my house, but road construction in the area has made it a little difficult for me to get there. Once the Kennedy Connector project is finished, it will be much easier for me and it should also bring a lot of extra traffic past the brewery.

The tasting area at MadTree is really quite large. There is a bar that wraps around the beer cooler and seats at least a dozen. Plus there are another dozen or so high top tables that each seat over a handful of people. The space was crowded on Sunday, not to the point that you couldn’t move, and it was great to see such wonderful support for the brewery and for the charity.

Fermenters

The brewery recently had a capacity expansion and their two new 60 barrel fermenters are the first thing you see from the tasting room. These brought the capacity up from 90 barrels to 210, a 133% increase! Needless to say, MadTree is doing very well in their first two quarters of operation. More details on the expansion can be found online compliments of the Brew Professor.

My parents joined Trey and I on this visit to the brewery and my mom put Trey’s name in for a variety of baskets. We had to leave at half time for his nap, but eventually had to drive back to pickup three baskets that he had won. The one that he was most excited about was filled with Coke and candy. I’d say it was a great first visit to MadTree and that I will be back again soon.
