This is a self guided museum that covers the history of breweries and has a vast collection of brewery memorabilia. If you are a beer nerd you will certainly enjoy this.

Didn't know that beer once came in ceramic bottles. Videos of old commercials were fun. Brought back memories. Learned how brewing was done before electric refrigeration. You get a free tap beer when you pay the modest $5 admission. Well worth the time and $.

Cool stuff to go through and read about. I enjoyed it. But honestly, I was truly there to taste all the great beer Potosi Brewery had to offer. Definitely try to go there during happy hour!

This is an interesting tour. You start off by learning a little about the history of the brewery and tasting the beers. You then enter the facility that is very modern and learn about the process of making the beer. We also got to tour...More

Good for adults and children. Even better when there's an event on. Listen to the age by history and how brewing began. Enjoy the horses go for a ride on a dray. See the old vehicles but don't forget to go into the brewery tap...More
