Al retired in 1969 and was succeeded by his son, Warren Marti. Warren was the "Jack of all Trades;" World War II veteran, teacher, bookkeeper, salesman, gardener, brewmaster and father. Similar to the family that preceded him, Warren was dedicated to the brewery and the community that surrounded it. Under his leadership, Schell's introduced new styles of beer into the market including Schell’s Export and Schell’s Light. But Warren also saw beyond beer and tapped into the soft drink market with a cooperative venture to produce 1919 Root Beer with Arneson Distributing of Sleepy Eye, MN. 1919 is a continued favorite to this day.
