When a Hobby Becomes a Passion
The Madison family has deep roots in the Bennington, Vermont. As locals growing up and living in the area, the Madisons 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 it’s second decade of operation, the brew pub has become a Bennington fixture and a favorite amongst the locals.
