MadTree was founded and continues to grow on the notion that beer builds community and community builds beer.  “Brewing high quality, great tasting beer is the number one priority for the brewery. However, supporting and being an active member of the community is a close second,” said MadTree Brewing co-founder, Brady Duncan. “It’s an honor to play a small part in helping make sure kids’ needs come first and strong families are built.”

Youth Villages provides help for children who face a wide range of emotional and behavioral problems with the primary goal of finding permanency for each child, either returning home with biological parents, finding a foster/adoptive home, or in the case of older youth, transitioning successfully into the community.  A private nonprofit organization, Youth Villages’ mission is to help children and families live successfully. Regardless of which Youth Villages program a child participates in, their approach centers around strengthening the child’s family and support systems.

Based in Cincinnati, Ohio, MadTree has rapidly captured the attention of craft beer fans and community supporters alike in their five years of existence. MadTree is recognized for their laser focus on quality craft beer that is brewed to create unique, new flavor profiles. The brewery is also applauded for fulfilling a mission to be a strong partner in the communities that they serve. MadTree is distributed by Ajax Turner Company in the Nashville metropolitan area.
