This is a fun place to eat. There’s always an interesting array of craft beers to try in various portions and the food is surprisingly good. The mussels, eggplant rolatini, and fish & chips were all quite good and the downtown ipa can be highly...More

Stopped in for dinner while in town. Started with the truffle fries and they were good - my only gripe is the parmesan that they used was the shake kind vs. the real shaved parm. It made for an odd texture, but they did taste...More

This restaurant is very conveniently located in the center of downtown Bennington. The atmosphere is like that of a micro pub. Service is very pleasant. Our orders were delivered promptly. Our lunches were very nice. The cost was equal to the value

Good pub fare. Service fine. A nice pour of wine if you don’t drink craft beer. Would’ve been even a better dining experience if the adult table next to us didn’t think they were the only ones in the restaurant with their extremely loud cackling....More

On a Sunday evening we had a 30 minute wait. Our food arrived amazingly fast! Everyone in our party enjoyed their food. Blueberry beer, hamburger, salad, flatbread, fish and chips.

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!
