While in Madison, IN for vacation the Mad Paddle Brewery was a highlight. The renovation details honor the historic integrity of the building with visually appealing modern details. The faculty was friendly and experienced. Great variety of beer - so many flavorful brews.
Highly recommend.

Love this building and what they have done with it. The beer is excellent and there are plenty of options even for NON beer drinkers. Prices are actually a bit lower than many craft breweries I have been to.

Thank you for the nice review. We are glad to hear that the other drink options that we offer resonate in a positive fashion. We agree that for the quality of beer and the great atmosphere, Mad Paddle's prices are very reasonable!

Stopped in on our last visit to Madison. Great variety of craft beers, my favorite was the blood orange. I was totally taken back by how awesome the building is and enjoyed the historical photos of Madison and the Brewery. I was lucky enough to get a tour from the owner Jerry, ask if he's around when you're there. He's passionate about his beer and Madison!

Mad Paddle Brewstillery...you had my attention and Brew-Stillery! I perform at a lot of places around the country and this is one of my new favs! What a hidden treasure and gem this was to find! I absolutely loved the vibe and atmosphere from the minute I walked in the door! Every nook and cranny has something to offer, the outside patio, upstairs private rooms (perfect for your special party and gathering), VIP music viewing, with unique fixtures and designs throughout that reflect the history of the building, meanwhile offering a trendy place to experience handcrafted Mad Paddle brews, moonshine, and other local taps. Jerry Wade has turned an old feed plant into a newfound feed and brew shack along with a live music venue that is worth the drive and stay in historical Madison, Indiana! That Ohio River built the town, but it appears to me that Mad Paddle is putting it on the map!

This is a nice place in a cute little town. The neighborhood is charming, breezy and quiet, and this place offers a super chill, nice environment with a sweet little side beer garden feeling patio. Very pleased with the service, the beer, and the ambiance.

First, the venue is pleasant, easy to locate, good indoor and outdoor seating. Second, the craft beer is fantastic. Third, the pizza offerings are yummy. Highly recommend a stop at MAD PADDLE in historic downtown Madison along the mighty Ohio River.

This is a must do if you are ever in Madison or anywhere near it. The beer is outstanding, the people are friendly, and the music is great (even on a Sunday night). We ordered food from a place a block away and ate it and drank merrily. I can't say enough about this place and Jerry, the owner! This is a great place for families of all ages, singles, couples, and pets! All are welcome!!!! Mad Paddle will be on my list for one of the top five breweries in the State of Indiana!

Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. You can taste samples before ordering. They have outdoor and indoor seating. You can also order food from nearby restaurants. We had sliders from Shooters which were phenomenal. This is a must stop for beer fans visiting Madison, Indiana. Owner & Brewer, Jerry sat and chatted with us and other patrons. We felt more like family than customers!
