The most popular beer rating and sharing app, Untappd, recently named Cincinnati one of ‘most checked-in cities’ in the country among Verified Venues and will be holding a celebration party at MadTree Brewing Company on Thursday, April 12. MadTree Brewing earned the right to host the celebration for having the most check-ins by unique users of any verified venue in the area. The Untappd app allows users to rate beers and share with their friends what they’re drinking, where they’re at, and what they think about the beer.
The competition challenged app users across the country to check-in the beers they were drinking at Untappd verified venues during the month of March. Cincinnati currently has 68 locations, including MadTree, that are members of the Untappd for Business, which allows bars and restaurants to manage their tap-list and connect with their customers in new ways, and beat out other cities like Denver and San Diego, in the month of March in terms of check-ins.
“We have been avid users and supporters of the Untappd app since the brewery began five years ago, so it was really exciting to see Cincinnati represent so well in this competition,” said Mike Stuart, MadTree director of people and social strategy. “We’re blown away that so many Untappd users chose to come MadTree to share what they were drinking.”
The celebration party will be held from 6PM-9PM on Thursday, April 12 at the MadTree Taproom at 3301 Madison Road in Oakley. Untappd co-founder, Greg Avola, will be on-hand to meet Untappd fans and give out Untappd t-shirts, stickers, and other swag items. MadTree will be tapping six specialty barrel aged beers and giving away free glasses to the first 100 people, in addition to pouring the wide variety of 32 beers normally on tap.
“We always knew Cincinnati was a beer drinking town and they made it loud and clear with all the check-ins at so many fantastic verified venues,” said Untappd co-founder, Greg Avola.
Cincinnati won the honors in addition to Anaheim, Chicago, Charlotte, New York City, Portland (OR), and Tampa. A complete list of celebrations can be found here.
Cincinnati’s MadTree Brewing made history when they opened in 2013 by becoming the first modern craft brewery to can its beer in Ohio. When it comes to brewing, they have carved their own path. They mix. They mash. They methodically bring quality beer to life, and have fun doing it. Demand from the growing community keeps MadTree motivated and moving. In return, they make nothing but the best beer and opened their new production brewery and taproom in February 2017. They are founded and continue to grow on the notion that beer builds community builds and community builds beer.
