For only $3 we were treated to a fascinating history of the brewery, tour, and a very generous beer tasting. The grounds & setting are beautiful as well! This was the highlight of our visit to New Ulm. We will be back!

Very pretty grounds. Tours fill up quickly so best to have a reservation before heading there. Lots of history at this brewery. There is a taste testing after the tour but I think it isn't included in tour fee.

PEACOCKS! Pretty cool to see Peacocks and Deer up close. Beautiful landscaping and adorableTrellis'/Arbors and decor on the buildings. (Nice Gift shop I was told-closed when I was there early evening)

We arrived after the museum was closed, but we were able to take a waking tour of the gardens surrounding the buildings. They were beautiful. The store was open, so we were able to buy some gifts.

It's a one-hour tour and so very interesting. Sampling was, of course, very good. The flower gardens are fun to walk through which provided more than one opportunity to take pictures.

The grounds of the site are wonderful - peacocks, beautiful trees and historic buildings. The tour is good - pay attention to history as it is really neat. The tasting was well worth the small admission price.

This was great. How cool to think that things have not changed much over time. My Grandparents would have loved to see that. Their favorite beer was brewed there. Beer tasting was fun and kids loved the rootbeer.

Road trip to the Schell's Brewery last weekend. Worth the trip. Arrived right before 1 and we had to wait til the 2 o'clock tour. No big deal. A lot of the brewery is being renovated, and is off limits for the tour. We did see a few rooms and the grounds. Our tour was very entertaining and knowledgable. Plenty... More

Great history lesson and a nice brewery tour. You can’t beat the value of the included beer tasting.

The grounds and tasting room are great, the tour is so-so. If you are going to New Ulm just for this tour you may just be disappointed. You really don't see anything of the current production. Seems to me when they built the new facility they could have built in touring platforms. The beer tasting and video at the end... More
