Schell's is the first brew tour I ever attended. I had an awesome time. The tour guide was knowledgeable, friendly, and personable. The brew grounds are well maintained and attractive. There are a few peacocks that strut around the property adding a cool nuance to the brewery. They're almost like guard dogs. The museum is pretty neat as well. The taproom is awesome and our guide let us come to the tap table for "extra beer" after all the bottles were spent. I'd go again in a heartbeat.

Beautiful grounds and a great heritage brewery. The tour is a bit limited but they make up for it with a great taproom and lots of tastes. The beer garden, open on summer weekends, is also excellent. Nice museum and large gift shop as well. Well worth a visit.

Great historic brewery in rural Minnesota with a very factual and entertaining tour. Some of their beers are better than others, but I would definitely recommend checking them out. The old brew house and it's surrounding campus are beautiful and worth the hour trip from Minneapolis.
