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!

The Waldorf melt is to die for and I highly recommend getting the 8 beer sampler for 9 dollars then a pint of your favorite to have with your meal

Madison is a great local bar/restaurant. Offers good seasonal beers and food. I have been very pleased with the service and food. My only suggestion is to have Happy Hour Drink and food Specials!! College kids would love that!

Madison's brews it's own beers, and they are pretty good! For a brewery I was surprised at the quality of food. I had a salad, and the greens were fresh and it was very ample. Downside for me was the bartender was not very attentive. I am always amazed when a server does not even glance, not the slightest at a customer. Had to ask for another beer. He assumed I was there to drink, had to ask for a menu. It is a bit noisy.

We had a surprisingly great meal at Madison; everyone at the table was really happy. The mac and cheese, pork schnitzel, and bangers and mash were particular favorites. The milk stout was a little flat, literally and figuratively, so I can't recommend that beer. Based on how good the food was, I'd certainly return next time I'm in the area.

Had dinner here on 5/24. We were seated in less time then we were estimated. All our meals were very good, our server was friendly and knew her stuff. Their beer was very tasty. My favorite was the Hefewiezen and my husbands was a whiskey porter.
