Sip Some Bock And Pray For Spring!

While the beer doesn’t always speed the arrival of Spring, it will at least keep you warm.

Schell’s beer, brats, live music and warm fire await you. Have your beer “poked” by our fire tenders, giving your Bock beer some nice caramel flavors.

And when the final bock has been wrangled, the last Ring of Fire sung, the last keg tapped and last mug hoisted, it’s time to close the books on another Bockfest…Unless you want to stick around and help with the cleanup! But the party doesn’t stop there. Festers flock to downtown New Ulm for a fun-filled night of friendship. And when the night has run its course and it’s time to call it quits, we ask that you call for a ride home! Be safe out there!
