Sip Some Bock And Pray For Spring!

Celebrate the changing seasons with Schell’s beer, brats, live music, and the cozy warmth of a crackling fire! Our fire tenders will add a touch of caramel flavor to your Bock beer – it may not make Spring arrive faster, but it will definitely keep you toasty.

As the last Bock is captured, the final “Ring of Fire” sung, and the last mug raised, it marks the end of another fantastic Bockfest. The party doesn’t have to end there – head downtown to New Ulm for a night filled with laughter and friendship. And when it’s time to bid adieu, remember to arrange for a safe ride home. Cheers to another memorable Bockfest!
