As a New Ulm resident, I have toured Schells 3 or 4 times with visiting friends and relatives and it's always fun.

This is my second tour to Schells. My wife and I took some of her friends to a tour. Lately, I took my 21 year-old son on the tour. We had a nice introductory history of the family brewery from the 1800s to the present. There was a museum which also had a video of the complete brewing process. We... 更多
