Bennington has a wonderful brewery! Beautiful cozy building, and the beer is fantastic. Knowledge friendly staff makes the experience more pleasant. Our favorite beer is the Sucker Pond Blonde - which was excellent. For an added bonus - the food is pretty darn good too!

Madison Brewery was recommended to us by a local business. We found the concept of going to a brewery for a dinner that we had was wrong. Madison is fantastic. The drinks range from various local beers, to outstanding lemonade and fantastic unsweetened iced tea....More

The beers were decent, if not top flight. The servers seemed indifferent and not really welcoming. The prices were premium as many brew pubs seems to be trending.

Description
The Madison family has deep roots in the Bennington, Vermont. As locals growing up and living in the area, the Madison's have deep ties to the community and in the early 1990's the family decided to purchase what was then a burned out storefront in Bennington's historic downtown, and convert it into the area's first brew pub. "My brother Mark was part of the inspiration" says co-owner Mel Madison. "He become passionate about brewing beer as a hobby... And that let us to the idea of starting a brew pub." From those humble beginnings, the brewery has developed six regular brews plus a seasonal brew. To complement the brewing is the lunch and dinner offerings as well as Madison's own home-made chips - a favorite at the bar or anyplace. Now into its second decade of operation, the brew pub has become a Bennington fixture and a favorite amongst the locals. We encourage you to stop in and discover for yourself everything Madison's Brewing Company has to offer!
