Went to Octoberfest. Lots of people were here and it was rainy. But everyone was having fun. We got the huge pretzels and beer. There was rootbeer and water. There was a tent with bands playing.

We stopped at the Schell Brewery to see if they were open for tours, but found that was not the case during the weekdays after Labor Day. We were surprised, however, to find beautiful gardens still full of blooms and several families of peacocks wandering...More

We had a great time learning about this family owned brewery. Our tour guide Matt was awesome. Five bucks gets you a tour, 6, 2oz samples of beer and then another 12oz beer of your choice! Best deal ever! Great gift shop as well!

Historic August Schells Brewery was a awesome place to visit! Absolutely the most unique place to take a tour of. The peacocks were out, the flowers were radiant and the beers were ice cold! (1919 root beer for the kids)

We first visited this place a few years ago because it was listed in the New Ukm tourist guide. The gardens are beautiful, the museum area has a wonderful display of history and the gift shop has some nice "swag" and the prices are fair....More

We toured the Schells Brewery with our Ford Mustang car club in September 2017. New Ulm is beautiful by itself. The tour just topped it off. So fun and educational! Our tour guide was fun, educated and patient with our questions. I highly recommend this...More
