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.

Nice place with pretty good selection. The beers are rather creative and their sours are actually excellent (I am not a fan of Sours and enjoyed them). Good selection and service. Community seating so you get in to conversations with strangers which is always fun. Definitely worth a visit if you are in town and want to hit up a brewery.

While visiting Cincinnati i researched the local breweries in the area and ubered my way over to Mad Tree Brewing. Overall an impressive Brewing company. The service and tap selection is very good. I also believe Mad tree is highly underrated and would highly recommend a visit to this brewing company.

Very cool brewery located in Cincinnati, Ohio. It always seems to be busy. It's a large space with lots of seating, but space for bar stools around the main bar is very limited, so don't expect to ever have a shot to pull up to the bar in a stool unless you're there during soft hours on a weekday. Or ever, really. A good sized outdoor patio out back is nice also, and they usually have cornhole or some other yard game available to play.

They keep a nice selection of their own brews on tap. Often some brewery only stuff as well which is always a treat. If you find yourself looking to visit a brewery in Cincinnati, this place should be top on your list in my opinion.

Very open and airy place when I went in, on a nice 75 degree day with a nice cool breeze. There were shirts and to go beers for sale (both cans and different size containers), and around 20 beers on tap to choose from. Prices were reasonable, and you could order varying sizes. They had a pizza serving area, with specialty pizzas that looked good but we didn't have time to try one. The service was great, the people were attentive and willing to answer any questions. Out on the patio there was seating and corn hole. A great chill hang out spot, wish I lived closer.

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.
