August Schell Brewing Co.

The Schell's Beer story began long before 1860 with a man named August Schell. From his birth, his move to the States, and even co-founding New Ulm. We all start somewhere, and Schells' story started right here. A legacy began when the first brick was laid, and the company hasn't turned back since.

Throughout the years, the Schell family faced adversity. The light beer craze. Disco. Low-carb diets. Their brewing tradition persevered and as the brewery evolved, so did the beer.

Schell's was the first brewery in Minnesota to start producing craft beers. A few were created in the 80s, but most followed in the 90s.

In 2002, Schell's made the largest investment in company history by purchasing Grain Belt Beer, and many other new ventures followed. The legend continues, one bottle at a time.
