Grain Belt Announces New Brew: Lock & Dam Lager – April release celebrates brewery’s acquisition of historic Grain Belt Beer sign

NEW ULM, MN, (Feb. 1, 2016) — August Schell Brewing Company, Minnesota-based brewers of Grain Belt beer, proudly announces the release of a new beer, Lock & Dam, to be on store shelves in April.

Inspired by the Mississippi River and the hard working lock & dam that powered the original Grain Belt brewery, the latest addition to the Grain Belt lineup also celebrates the brewery’s acquisition of another Minneapolis icon, the Grain Belt Beer sign. August Schell completed the purchase of the Grain Belt sign in January 2016.

The beer will be available year-round. Lock & Dam is a copper lager with a crisp flavor profile. At launch Lock & Dam will be available in six-packs and 12-packs of 12oz bottles, as well as kegs. By summer, it will also be sold in 16-ounce cans.

“Grain Belt got its start right here on the Mississippi, powered by St. Anthony Falls and the dam,” said Ted Marti, president and fifth-generation descendant of brewery founder, August Schell. “We are proud to honor that heritage with a brew inspired by the place and hardworking people who gave us our start.”
