This is a nice place to stop for dinner. The beers are average, but the food is not... decent eats. Beer is uninspired, watery and weak flavored, generally

I came to this place upon a recommendation from another NA member. The place is a nice place, very warm and inviting. They had 7 had beers on tap that was a decent variety but not much else. The beers were average (at best) with nothing that will blow you away and seems like their beers are made somewhat cheaply to appease, not impress. The food was decent as I had Brewmasters Steak Sandwich with fries. The service was okay as the bar area was half full but the bartenders attention wasn’t fully attentive. To my surprise, they were closing at 9pmthe but then again, it is a small vermont town and there wasn’t a line of people at the door either. Overall, if you are in the area, give it a try but don’t drive out of your way for their beers.

The night we visited the service was not too good and the meals were mediocre and the beer wasn’t anything great but it still beats most non-brewpub restaurants.

Visited for lunch time snacks on a Sunday and the place was fairly rocking, but we only had to wait a few minutes for a table.
Modern looking brewpub, smart decor, plenty of wood inside and the brewing coppers on show.
The beers were so so,nothing to ahout about but adeqaute enough. Food was good although we just shared nachos and fries as opposed to entrees.
Service was pleasant and they seemed quite excited that English visitors had dropped by!

This place is cool. The bartenders are friendly, knowledgable, and fun. The beers were okay. But, the food and atmosphere is great. This is a very fun stop in Bennington!

Stopped in for some beers and a meal. A nice large room that had a wooden lodge feel with a medium sized bar. There were eight of their beers on tap that ranged from ok to good. Service was good with a staff that was fairly knowledgeable. The food was quite good and especially the apps. Prices were very competitive.

Visited here this week while on vacation with the family.
This brewpub is located in a great space on the main drag in downtown Bennington. Bar is to your right as you walk in the door, restaurant seating to the left and also upstairs. Smallish but varied menu satisfied all the hungers in our party. Service was prompt and available. Seemed a bit pricy, my daughter had a 10 dollar kids meal. The beer here is average, with some having issues. I wouldn’t make a special trip to come here, but might stop in if I was in town.

Was almost gonna skip over this place, despite being on vacation nearby, because of the lackluster reviews. But found myself in Bennington with nothing to do on a sunday evening, so the chocolate shop (and almost everything else) was closed, so I stopped in with my girlfriend. The beers (as described by others) were not all that experimental,were all solid and pretty tasty. I was in a mood for session beers, so I was able to kill a 7 sampler without any trouble. Service was great. Met another couple passing through and had some good conversation. The ambience was great, location and decor were very nice and well put together. Beers were solid. I would definitely recommend stopping in if you’re in the area (but don’t pre-judge!). Didn’t eat any food.

A small bar in the small town of Bennington, VT. This was the last stop of my VT/NH trip and it was also the worst spot. The beer offerings were standard styles (strong ale, pale ale, scottish ale, lager, witbier). The 2 beers I tried were awful, possibly due to infected lines. I didn’t try any of the food. Yeah, so I wouldn’t go back here just because the beers were not good, so it’s not even worth a stop for that.

Visited here on my way to northern Vermont. The place itself is located in a storefront and has the look of an industrial brewpub with the brewery located in the back. Food wise, the prices are good ad typical pub fare is available with some daily specials. 7-8 taps on at any given time that yield enjoyable session beers and rotating seasonals. Worth a visit if passing through.

A brewpub with a chain restaurant feel. The food is pretty good, and the beers on tap are of variable quality, but all-in-all not bad. You will always find a cast of characters belled up. Not the most memorable place, but a very good place to stop for one or two.
