Brewery, museum, and brewpub all under one roof! The museum contains interesting brewing memorabilia from all around the country. $5 gets you a self-guided tour and a complimentary beer. The service at the bar and gift shop were both excellent. The atmosphere was family-friendly, although my group of several single guys also felt very welcome. The brewpub has a wide variety of Potosi beers on tap, many of which have not been bottled. There was also one Capital beer on tap. A pleasant beer garden adjoins the brewpub. No one in my group ordered food. Definitely worth a stop if you're in southwestern Wisconsin!

A hidden gem of SW Wisconsin. Visited a couple times and always enjoyed the stay. The brewery and history museum are nice to visit. The food has always been well made, along with the beer and the staff has always been super friendly. Their bar is a visual marvel; extremely well made and just beautiful to look at. Definitely worth a visit if you find yourself near there.

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.
