“A step back in History.”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

The grounds are beautiful. The tour is well worth the time. It shows you what faith the founder had in establishing this brewery and it still continues to operate successfully.

“Fun time at the Schell Brewery”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

We had a great time at the Brewery. We were able to take the tour and try out many of the beers in the tasting room. The facilities are very nice and clean.

We enjoyed touring the museum first and then taking the tour which did not take very long. The grounds are well maintained and our tour guide was personable and knowledgeable.

“Great history. Great beer!”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

Take a visit to this brewery and you will learn a lot of interesting facts beginning before the brewery was even founded. The inception of the 1919 root beer to get around the times of prohibition and the Dakota uprising while the brewery was saved from arson. At the end of the tour, you sample the variety of beer brewed there.
