You’ve probably already heard that Schell’s has bought the iconic Grain Belt Beer sign that overlooks the Mississippi river in Minneapolis. They plan to restore and re-light the sign by 2017. And if you’ve heard that, then you’ve almost definitely heard that Schell’s is planning to brew a new beer to celebrate this acquisition – a copper lager by the name of Lock & Dam Lager under the Grain Belt brand.

The second-oldest family owned brewery in America, August Schell Brewing, is celebrating their heritage the best way they know how, releasing a new beer.
We all know the sign. It is a piece of our heritage and our history. The Grain Belt sign IS Minneapolis, it IS Minnesota. Schell’s has announced the fantastic news that the Marti Family, in cooperation with the Preservation Alliance of Minnesota, has announced the purchase and restoration of the iconic nordeast landmark.
“In order to meet the growing demand for the Noble Star Collection, we need additional space to house these unique lagering tanks,” said Marti.
Sticking with what they do best, Schell’s recently released a new lager to their arsenal. This time, however, it’s getting the royal hop treatment. Arminius Hoppy Pale Lager is double dry-hopped and brewed with over 2.5 lbs per barrel of a combination of German, French, and American hops. At 6.5% ABV and 70 IBU, it weighs in like an IPA.
