“Great Local Brewery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Great tour - great beer - great location. Did I mention it was great? After the tour be sure to go outside on the deck and enjoy the full glass of beer you get at the end of the tour.

Great place for family and adults. Wonderful beer tour and tasting. Plus flower gardens, deer and many other animals. A must see when visiting New Ulm.

“Worth a visit if you appreciate beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

We stopped here on our way home from a week long RV trip. The grounds are absolutely beautiful with plenty of trees, gardens, and peacocks. There's no fee to visit and hang out. Only the tour costs a few bucks.

We took the tour and really enjoyed it. It's pretty cheap and you get to taste a bunch of beer (and root beer if not into alcohol or if you're a minor). Anyhow, lots of history on the tour and a video explaining the process. Would have been a little nicer with more info about the brewing process and seeing it in action. However, that's not what this tour does, so don't expect that and you'll likely enjoy it anyway.

“Schell Brewery, Tour and Tasting Room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

Museum is good, tasting room is great. Beautiful grounds and cool, old buildings. The tour is interesting, but you do need to climb stairs to see everything. They have a gift shop in addtion to the strating area which are free.

“Dont wast your money.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Don't waste your money on the tour. The tour was bad you really don't see anything. The only thing you see is a video ok how the beer is made. Would have been better if we saw the real action of the plant. So again I would save your money.
