Drinks - August Schell Brewing Company

New Ulm, MN

The August Schell Brewing Company in New Ulm, MN, is not only among the oldest breweries in Minnesota, but it is actually the second oldest family-owned brewery in the nation. They have been producing their German-style craft beers ever since August Schell, a German engineer and machinist, made his first barrels in 1860. It has remained a family operation ever since. In 2002, Schell's even purchased Grain Belt, a renowned Minnesota beer brewed since 1893, effectively rescuing the label and keeping the beer in the state.
