My husband enjoys the fresh brew on tap and the delicious burgers! My recommendation is to try any of the burgers, you won’t be disappointed. We had the classic with Vermont cheddar and Swiss cheese—excellent! Top it off with beer fries or homemade chips.More

We stopped at Madison's for dinner. It was a cold evening and we found the comfort food we were looking for on their menu. We thought dinner was very good and we found dessert great. We had carrot cake. The atmosphere was very friendly.

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!
