Description   EN   

The world's largest cone top beer can is nestled amid the bluffs of the Mississippi River in the town of Potosi. It was erected near the Potosi Brewery, which closed down in 1972 after 120 years of operation. The bottom of the beer can opens up into a bar, serving events at the nearby Holiday Gardens Event Center.

The Potosi Brewery Foundation was established in an attempt to construct a microbrewery in the old brewery's place. In June 2004, the American Breweriana Association selected the brewery to house its national museum, beating out both Milwaukee and St Louis.
This site houses both the National Brewery and Potosi Brewery museums, the Great River Road Interpretive Center, a restaurant and microbrewery and gift shop. The complex opened in mid February 2008.

1 21 March 2011 Tape worm Found it

I had decided to construct the worlds largest beer bong, and head up here and give it a go.  Well, that was a week ago, and I don't remember a thing until yesterday.  Last thing I remember is the whole town cheering me on yelling "drink, drink, drink".

 

Thanks for the tall cool one!!!!
