Schell Brewery is practically perfect in every way! Beautiful, well-stocked gift store, brewery tours, picturesque surroundings, but most of all the tasting room and great Schell beers! New Ulm is awesome!

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.
