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!

We cme across this pub/restaurant by chance but its clearly well though of locally. It was busy, there were queues for tables etc.

The food was good and the local beer was something else especially as its being brewed on site and you can go and look at the process in between courses. Great place.

Four different lunches and each person loved theirs. Plates served to other diners looked yummy, too. We just happened to find this gem by driving down the main drag in town.

The Yankee Pot Roast was the best I ever had. No need for a knife. Delicious cheddar mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. The chocolate milk stout was a perfect balance of sweet and creamy. Wish I took a picture. Highly recommend. Will go back again.

A few years ago, I rated Madison's and since then its performance has improved enormously. The tavern now has an experienced head brewer and assistant brewer. They are a great team, creating beer recipes and brewing them.
As for the rest of the crew, they work hard to provide the very best of service. The food is very good and reasonably priced. I highly recommend the Truffle Fries with a pint of your favorite style of beer. BTW, they offer most styles of Ales. I have been trying to encourage them to do a couple of Lagers.

A great spot in downtown Bennington. The Madison Brewing Company offers a great menu with very interesting options, excellent assortment of craft beers, outstanding service, and ambiance in a very interesting facility. We diner on the second floor with a great view down to the first floor. I had a Burger and my wife the Fish & Chips, we also had a craft beer and a wine. We enjoyed our food very much and would not hesitate to return. So give Madison a try.
