Good Old Potosi was a Wisconsin mainstay for more than a century. Potosi Brewing Company's doors closed in the early 70's, but the brewery was revived in 2000, and is operated by the Potosi Brewery Foundation and the American Breweriana Association as part of the National Brewery Museum. Potosi revived a lot of its classic labels, such as the flagship Good Old Potosi, which is an American light lager, and will remind many of the classic light lagers. It is malty with a slight hop taste and a golden color. There was a time when beers like this ruled America, with names like Pabst, Miller High Life, Budweiser, Schlitz, Stroh's etc. And the amazing thing was, all tasted wonderful and were very drinkable. This isn't designed to be the best beer you've ever had, it was designed to be a basic lager meant for enjoying with friends, brewed by a foundation whose purpose is to remind those of the importance of breweries in America's history.
