If you love beer, you gotta go here! A great storehouse of mostly American breweriana. Iowa and Wisconsin are IPA lover's paradises and there are many types to try. If you don't prefer IPAs, you may have some trouble finding something you like. This museum even has a beer research facility and library within, a place any beer lover would... More

This could also be a beer advertising museum because most of what is contained here is the old beer related signs as well as bottles and other items like that.

Great amount of breweriana there to view and history of interest to those who already have an interest in the subject. The displays are good and many people including myself have contributed items to the displays. Because the resurrected Potosi Brewery is attached, I would have to count the quality of the Potosi brews as a negative; after trying a... More

Lovely little museum of brewing history. Nicely displayed and well worth the visit. The neon advertising signs were a hit for me. Its a wonderful place to visit and you should couple your trip with a stop in the Brewing Company just attached. It'll make your visit to this part of the world.

Driving into Potosi from the south I thought where is this place? The town is literally one street with houses on both sides. Finally at the far end of town we found the museum and restaurant and about 150 others who came to eat and drink and a few to see the museum. As I write this the museum has... More

I don't get all the hype. The museum costs $5 per person. It took my husband and I less than 20 minutes to walk through the entire thing. There were very few interactive displays but most were not even working properly. The lady who sold us our tickets seemed distracted and did not give very good direction on how to... More

Great collection of brewery memorabilia from the past and present. Modern amenities blend well in historic space for an excellent experience. Tour is self-guided an a bit twisty in it's layout, but it seems like a bit of a treasure hunt when you find the next cool thing! The staff of the museum and the Potosi Brewery Company staff were...

This brewery was really fun to tour. We were in s.w. Wisc. to see the world renowned "The House On The Rock.." It was fantastic and well worth the trip. We stayed at a fantastic hotel "The Fenway" in Fennimore, Wisc. Our room was not ready yet and the owner suggested we take a ride to see the brewery. It... More

All of the different beer signs, commercials, mugs etc were interesting. If you are from the midwest or even the east coast, you will definitely see something that will jog your memory.
