Potosi Brewing Company is the closest brewery in my area. Located in Wisconsin, the home of many fabulous craft breweries, Potosi Brewing Company has a long, rich history. They celebrate the art of beer at the National Brewery Museum and research library located at the brewery. I have visited the brewery many times, but always simply for pleasure and never with a discerning eye with the intention of writing about it. I look forward to driving there again soon and tasting the brews with my notebook in hand.
I typically enjoy a good summer brew, so when I saw Potosi’s Steamboat Shandy, I was immediately interested in sampling it.
Basic Info (via bottle and website)

This beer was too sweet for me. As much as I often like a bit of lemon flavor in a summer brew, the addition of pure cane sugar sent it a bit over the edge for me.
