OBF #246 ( August Schell Brewery )
Established in 1860 in New Ulm by August Schell, who realized that good German beer was difficult to find in such a small, rural area. In the fall of 1860, August partnered up with Jacob Bernhardt, a former brewmaster at the Benzberg Brewery in St. Paul, MN (what today was known as the Minnesota Brewing Company). They erected a small brewery just two miles from town along the banks of the Cottonwood River. The Oregon Brewers Festival is one of the oldest and largest craft beer festivals in the nation. It is known Worldwide and has just celebrated 30 years of cheers. Selling a little bit of history. Comes with a certificate of authenticity signed by the founder Art Larrance.
