We decided that we were due for a road trip and headed to New Ulm today, a small quaint town of German heritage about 100 miles west of St Paul.
Our first stop was Schell’s Brewery, founded in 1860 by August Schell. It is the second oldest family-owned brewery in America and the oldest one in Minnesota. We sampled a flight of four beers at the Rathskeller patio and walked through the gardens that surround the family’s mansion. All of the buildings are closed except the small museum and gift shop.
