Fifty West and MadTree Collaborate to Support Starfire
Mike Stuart | April 17, 2013
Two of Cincinnati’s hottest new craft beer breweries are combining forces to create a philanthropic beer. Fifty West Brewing Company and MadTree Brewing Company in conjunction with local non-profit, Starfire Council, that helps adults with disabilities develop social networks and make a bright future possible. Student Michael Makin has a particular passion for beer so together they have created a “crisp, citrusy Wheat” for a special tasting event on June 5th. There is even a Facebook contest to name the beer! The beer sounds delicious and should be awesome given the pedigree of the brewers behind the effort. Plus, you get to drink for a worthy cause!
