Delicious beer! Didn’t have time for food but the beer selection was great. They have the best peanut butter chocolate stout I have ever tasted! Also, they have cans available for purchase.

Super place in downtown Bennington. Always has 18-20 fresh, flavorful beers on tap. The Singularity, BlackBerry Tart, and JU-C Double OPS were all delicious. Appetizers are large enough for 2-3 (I had mussels and calamari on separate nights, both outstanding). Entrees are terrific. Pay attention...More

We stopped here for lunch and enjoyed one of their burgers and a beer. The burgers are 1/2 pound, so unless you're really hungry, you can easily split one. Our server was friendly and service was good.

Really enjoyed the Brewers Dozen and a Crock of Chili. One of the best chili bowls I've had. Chili and a beer, what else could you ask for?

We were driving through Bennington, and came upon the Madison Brewing Company and decided to stop in for beer and some food. I had the Blackberry beer -- which was very good -- not overwhelming with fruit, and just the right flavor. My partner had...More

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!
