Mad Tree Brewing

Breweries around the country are outdoing one another when it comes to going green.  No longer is giving spent grain to farmers the sole solution.   Companies are now looking at the entire sustainable picture, investing in expensive energy systems and changing ingredients.

WBUR details a few examples in "Survival of the Greenest Beer?"

Beer has always been part of Greater Cincinnati but now - from their business plan to their recipes - Mad Tree Brewing Company is taking a rather different approach.

Be on the lookout for these Mad Tree brands: Happy Amber, PsycHOPathy, Gnarly Brown and Identity Crisis - expected to hit store shelves this Spring.
