There’s Years Of Brewing History Hiding In This Tiny Wisconsin Town

Way down in the farthest southwest corner of the state, right on the Great River Road and sitting above the Mississippi River about 20 miles north of Dubuque, Iowa, is the tiny town of Potosi. With a population of less than 700 folks, this place might be just a blip on the map if not for the fact that it’s home to Potosi Brewery. After a few decades of being abandoned, this brewery with roots dating back to 1852 is back – and brewing up some delicious beer. This revitalized spot is drawing tens of thousands of visitors to a part of the state that might otherwise be overlooked unless you really had a hankering to visit the “Catfish Capital of Wisconsin.”

Address: 209 South Main Street, Potosi, WI, 53820
