It seems just like yesterday when Cincinnati’s MadTree Brewing Co. announced the construction of an $18 million brewery, taproom, beer garden and event center in what looks like a massive aircraft hanger. The new facility will be in the Cincinnati neighborhood of Oakley, about one mile away from its current location. MadTree renovated the former RockTenn building, an obsolete brownfield manufacturing facility, allowing it to more than quadruple its production. The new brewery and taproom will serve as an anchor for the Oakley business district.
Just this week, MadTree Brewing announced the actual date for the grand opening of its new state-of-the-art 2.0 brewery, taproom, beer garden and private event space. The brewery will celebrate the opening of the new location in conjunction with its annual Winter Bonanza anniversary party on Saturday, February 11, 2017, so mark your calendar. From the press release:
“Seeing this dream become a reality still blows my mind,” said MadTree Brewing co-founder, Kenny McNutt. “Four years ago, before we opened, we couldn’t even remotely imagine doing something like this. It’s an honor to be able to invite the community that built this to share in the celebration.”
What can you expect?
Guests can expect a full lineup of current MadTree beers along with many fan favorites from the past. Other breweries from around the region and the country will be on-hand offering beers not usually found in this market. There will be live music plus food trucks and restaurants from the Cincinnati area on-site to keep stomachs full. Additional details about the event will be shared in the coming weeks.
MadTree invested over $18 million to construct the new complex, immediately bringing more than 50 jobs to the city of Cincinnati with plans to create 40 more jobs over the next three years.
