Schell's is the second oldest family-owned brewery in the country. While microbreweries and beer trends have come and gone, we’ve been right here, tirelessly brewing fine lagers and ales for all to enjoy. Visit our brewery grounds and see deer, roaming peacocks, beautiful gardens, and enjoy a beer in the Biergarten during the summer season.
