I checked this place out on a recent visit with my friends across the river. This was our first stop of four brewpubs and by far the best. From the outside it doesn't look like much. There is a gravel parking lot and a large building that houses the brewing facility and tap room. The place isn't fancy on the inside either. The brewhouse is to the left and the tap room is immediately inside. They did not have food, but you can order in or bring food.

On the day I went there were 12 beers on tap. I picked out six for my sampler, plus our group ordered about every beer so plenty of tasting was going on. Of the six in my sampler I liked all six of them. I don't think that has ever happened to me that I liked every beer that I tried.

The bartender yelled that a tour would start for anyone interested and suggested to grab a pint which I did. I was happy to learn that MadTree would be coming to northern Ohio by year's end.

Overall, the tap room is not fancy or impressing, but the beer is awesome. They quickly became one of my favorite Ohio breweries. I cannot wait until they come to my part of the state. I highly recommend trying all of their beers. I am also a fan them canning their beer. What a great experience.

A good brewery in the Cincy area. When we were there , there was quite the road construction project going on. Beers were solid and I liked the Stout the best. Definitely worth checking out!

Cool spot. I was s there around 5 on a Tuesday and the place was already packed. Pretty laid back but full of energy. I thought the quality of their stuff was great. Their Psychopathy, in particular, was all sorts of fantastic, pretty much exactly what I want in an IPA. I couldn't stop drinking that one during my trip in Cincy (and I did go home with a sixer of it as well). Really, though, I thought everything I tried from these guys was good to great. Service was good and a very nice selection to choose from. Overall, the best brewery I have visited since moving from Colorado. Glad I got to check these guys out prior to my move back to Denver in a couple weeks.

Right off I-71 at exit 8 north of Cinci. Bar area with several long tables. Low fence separating brewing area. No food but occasional food trucks.

I have to be honest here - I feel this place is the most overrated beer destination in Cincinnati. They do a great job marketing and make some very consistently average beers. Nothing seems to ever jump out, and their prices are consistently high for a local establishment. Their Citra High is fantastic, and Galaxy High and Thundersnow (winter seasonal) are both beers that taste good. The rest are very homebrew-esque. Even the lauded Axis Mundi, and I am a huge stout fan.
