Before Canvitational, Get to know - MadTree Brewing

We are getting excited for the upcoming Canvitational event happening later this month.  The lineup is very impressive again this year with Canvitational the only place you can get many of these beers due to their distribution. We wanted to get to know each of the participating breweries a little bit better. So, we've sent out a six pack questionnaire to each of them and we wanted to share them with you.

Madtree Brewing from Cincinnati, Ohio is up next.  You can look forward to sampling:

Happy Amber
Gnarly Brown
The Great PumpCan

Brady Duncan is and owner and Madtree's Secretary of Beer Defense.

1. What music do you hear most often on the brew deck?  

Depends on who is the early/lead brewer for the day. Can range from Napalm Death to Old Crow Medicine Show. Yesterday there was some Whitney Houston and Boys to Men playing. It was cool....and weird. 

2. What's your brewing mission? What are you trying to accomplish with your beer?

We want to be one of the most respected breweries in the midwest. To accomplish this we aim to a) be one of the best employers, b) be a pillar of the community, and c) make some of the highest quality beer found across the county.

3. How many beards can be found in the brewery on any given day?

About 8-9. There are a few swingers in the group. 

4. Which beers outside of your own do you enjoy? What beer do you wish you came up with? 

We like a lot of beers. Rather than specific beers, we have a lot of respect for breweries that create a great portfolio of beers. Stone, Russian River, Fatheads. Locally, Yellow Springs out Dayton and Blank Slate out of Cincinnati are making great beer on smaller scales. 

5. What's your go-to shift beer after a long day brewing?

Lift, but's it a go to all the time. 

6. What do you drink when you aren't drinking beer?

Mostly water. Lately Root Beer since we've started making that. We stay away from Mike's Hard.
