We visited on a beautiful October Saturday. The brewpub is part of the National Brewery Museum. The website advised making reservations, but Potosi is a very small town and we questioned this advice. We arrived a bit after 11:30am for lunch. The parking lot was quite full including a tour bus parked across the street. There was a 30 minute wait for lunch but since it was only 2 of us we were able to be seated at the final open small table. The brewpub is rather small so the reservation advice is not unwarranted.
Atmosphere: The brewpub is within the original Potosi Brewery built in the mid 1800s. The original walls remain but the inside is new. A beautiful wood bar with nice detail work, shiny new copper kettles compliment it nicely. The bar/dining area was full just before noon on a Saturday with college football on a couple TVs behind the bar. There is also a patio with tables, chairs, hop vines, a pond and some music. Overall we enjoyed the atmosphere.
Quality: The beer was all well done, the root beer was also very good. The food was fresh and seemingly made from high quality ingredients.
Service: The hostess was a bit distracted given the busy times, but was pleasant and accommodated us nicely. The waitress was knowledgeable about the beer selections and the menu and was very friendly and attentive despite the full dining area. After the museum tour we got our free glass of beer and the bartender quickly served us and was friendly, despite the full bar.
Selection: 6 beers on tap, 4 year-round and 2 seasonals with 1 tap root beer. The food menu is the same for lunch/dinner so I could consider it limited but still enough for anyone find something they will like.
Food: The selection was a bit limited, but I have no problems with that because everything we had was hot, fresh and quite good.
Overall the good food, beer, and service will do nothing but ensure this place is a success. The museum is very interesting and worth the $7 admission to the second and third floors, especially with the free glass of beer.

The best reason to go here is the museum. It is full history, both in terms of beer and advertising.
The food here is very good. Sweet potato fries with any of their burgers and you can't go wrong.
Selection can really vary day to day, both in number of different beers and in different styles. The website always seems behind, so either call or just show up and hope for the best. There is normally something for everyone though.
If you have kids, their root beer is top notch too.
Visit if you can.
