The second annual Fresh Fest -- a celebration of Cincinnati beer, live music and beer bloggers -- returns Saturday (Nov. 1) to MadTree Brewing Co. The free event, organized by Queen City Fresh, kicks off at 6 p.m.



MadTree will debut a new brown ale made with coffee, Espresso Self, during the event. Local beer bloggers also have teamed up with the brewery to design four versions of Lift infused with ingredients such as peppercorn, mint, hibiscus and peaches.
