MadTree Announces Plans for Third Location

MadTree Brewing and the City of Blue Ash are excited to announce a new proposed MadTree location to take root at Summit Park! City Council is scheduled to vote on the plan at the June 8 meeting.

“MadTree Parks & Rec” will be the company’s third brewery/restaurant location. The MadTree team plans to continue their creative and sustainable traditions of taking an old space and repurposing it into something innovatively comfortable for families and friends. This time, they plan to convert an existing 15,000 sf airplane hangar into an outdoor recreation destination surrounded by one of Cincinnati’s most popular park settings.  

The concept ties into the park’s green spaces with the creation of a massive outdoor area featuring unique elements catering to all ages. Plans are still in development but visitors will find things like cornhole, extensive outdoor seating, and walking trails.The expansive taproom features indoor/outdoor areas, private rental space and of course, continues MadTree’s tradition of providing some of the best beer, cocktails, and food offerings in Cincinnati. 

“This is a fantastic opportunity as it checks so many boxes for us like being an extension of an already fantastic park system, centrally located, and bringing a building back to life,” said MadTree Co-Founder Brady Duncan. “We love that people will be able to spend the whole day enjoying fun activities along with food and drinks with friends and family.”

The City of Blue Ash has been searching for a unique group to redevelop the previous airplane hangar within Summit Park. The Council vote on Thursday would finalize the plan by permitting the City Manager to enter into a lease with MadTree.  

“The MadTree brand and the company’s purpose is the perfect match for Summit Park. Their leadership has been very successful in not only redeveloping existing spaces, but also in enhancing the community through a commitment to the environment and local well-being,” said Blue Ash Parks and Recreation Director Brian Kruse. 

Like their Alcove kitchen + bar, MadTree is committed to meet LEED Gold certification standards in their rehabilitation of the old structure. They also plan to partner with Blue Ash Parks and Recreation to support and maintain Summit Park’s sustainability efforts.

MadTree is currently working on conceptual plans for the site and will have updates as the project progresses at and or follow along on Instagram and Facebook @madtreeparksandrec.
