MadTree tapped their inaugural beer at Arthur’s in Hyde Park in February of 2013. Ryan Blevins was there to try it. Little did he know he’d soon be brewing it. “I told [MadTree cofounder] Kenny [McNutt], ‘If you need help, I’ll do anything. I don’t care if I scrub the floors,’” Blevins says. A mechanic who had been home-brewing for four years, he officially left the garage for the brew deck seven months later. Now as operations manager he oversees brewing. (- Cait Barnett)
Hear Ryan talk about the beginning of Madtree, the transition to Madtree 2.0, crazy beer concoctions (consomme?), and the demise of pumpkin flavored beer.
