Despite My Best Efforts, Cincinnati Named Ohio’s Fittest City – Cincinnati is the most fit city in Ohio and in the top 30 in the United States according to the newest American Fitness Index Ranking.

The rankings are done by the American College of Sports Medicine and the Anthem Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Anthem, Inc. The Fitness Index evaluated America’s 100 largest cities using 33 health behaviors, chronic diseases and community infrastructure indicators.

Cincinnati snagged No. 29, which is 20 spots higher than the next closest Ohio city. 

No, that’s not a typo – it says “fittest”. I know, I had to double check the article myself. I’ve been doing everything in my power so far in 2018 to keep Cincinnati out of the rankings, but maybe I just didn’t try hard enough. I’ve been doing nothing but eating Skyline cheese coneys since we rang in the new year (I’m already halfway to my goal of 400 for the year, no big deal #ConeyWatch2018 #MacsConeyChallenge).

Jefe’s 25 Beers ’til Christmas: Day 19

Welcome to the nineteenth day of Jefe’s 25 Beers ’til Christmas today I will be reviewing a beer once again from the greatest place on earth, Cincinnati. MadTree is a brewery I have always wanted to visit and still plan too. I have tried several of their beers and I am a huge fan. I will be rating this seasonal holiday beer on a 1 to 5 scale. So was it another MadTree classic or a bust?

Beer Type: Spiced Scottish Ale

Location: The 513, The Nati, The Real Queen City, Cincinnati!

I am rating this beer a 4.25. MadTree got this one right this is definitely a perfect winter beer. This is also a beer you really want to enjoy so take your time drinking this and savor the flavors. This is a very smooth beer for having a higher ABV (Alcohol by Volume), I could definitely enjoy a sixer of this on a cold winter night. If you have tried this seasonal beer from MadTree Brewery please let me know what you think. Debating on beer is always fun to do since we all have different opinions on taste.
