      Located inside the restored historic Potosi brewery, The National Brewery Museum is a celebration of beer, breweries, and beer advertising. Founded in 1852, the Potosi Brewing Company became the fifth largest brewery in Wisconsin and distributed coast to coast. The brewery survived prohibition but closed in 1972 and was reopened in 2008.

      If you go:
      The Museum is open every day from 10am to 9pm. Admission is $5 and includes a free pint from the Potosi Brewery Bar. The Bar/Restaurant also features a beer sampler where you can enjoy a small glass of each of the 9 Potosi made beers on tap for just $9. There is also a Great River Road Interpretive Center which provides tourism information and free computers to travelers.

        Looks like a reasonable price to try some vintage brews!
