Eight different brews made on the premises. From Belgian White Ale to several IPA's as well as English Bitters and Dark Ale to a delicious coffee Stout, Madison's deserves a visit if you like craft beer and are passing thru or staying in Bennington, VT....More

My husband had the mushroom ravioli and I had the smokehouse mac n cheese with grilled chicken. Both were excellent. My husband loved the beer. We'd definitely go back to eat if we were in town.

What a find. We were taking a side trip to Bennington, Vt. and decided on trying this quaint restaurant on Main Street. Boy, were we surprised by the food, décor, service and beer. A great local place that we suggest you try.

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!
