The title translates to mean, "A toast to you in friendship!" I lived that saying as me and the hubb's tried 6 different beers at the Schell's Brewing Company in New Ulm, Minnesota. I couldn't resist posting photos of our brewery tour and tasting there. Sea Shells...Schell's Brewery...what a perfect relation to my previous post! I'm still relating my art and photo posts by the way. My last combo was sticks and stones.
But let's get back to the important topic of beer. My favorite was the Stout. It was actually my 7th taste because after tasting 6 you were lucky enough to get a full glass of your favorite. And they didn't have the Stout in the tasting line up.
The Schell brewery has been around for 150 years and is the second oldest brewery in the United States. During the tour we learned that August Schell and his family were very friendly with the Dakota Indians. And because of this, the brewery was untouched during the Dakota conflict in 1862. Meanwhile, the town of New Ulm was burned to the ground. Befriending the Dakota sounds like a good enough reason for me to support the Schell Brewery. Oh, and their beer tastes darn good too. Happy 4th of July to my fellow beer drinking Americans!
