Pallets of Posterity

Schell's Brewery rolls out one millionth case! "Is that big when compared to some of the other breweries in the country? No, But it is big for us." says August Schell Brewery Company President and Brewmaster Ted Marti. Pressing out that millionth case from the production line was quite a milestone. Schell's reached the mark for the first time in 147 years, at noon on Wednesday. It's the first year they have hit a million, and they were pretty excited. Me too, a Schell's is the first thing I offer guests at The Bohemian, if simply in the spirit of perseverance! There have been tough times through out the brewery's history, and Ted attributes much of the business's survival to local support. So it was only fitting that there be a parade of sorts through New Ulm spreading that case of cheer at our local tavern's.
"PROSIT" to a saga that fittingly deserves the Press On Award of the Week! There is definitely a Schmaltz Alt here for someone to accept, but it might have to be me. I missed the festivities: I could only justify having the baby downtown, in a bar!, for so long, even if it was daylight.

Press on Regardless

Welcome to The Bohemian Blog. I have a Bed and Breakfast, pre-teen daughter, a boyfriend and new baby. In my business I press sheets. In the business of day to day life, I press on regardless. We all do. Some just with a little more humor and grace. If I can laugh at myself, I've got the first one covered. The second part, well, the baby's middle name is Grace and that might be the best I can do. Welcome to The Iron Mangle with notes on the laundry of life, love and laughter. Drop off whatever you like, I'll put it through the ringer and we might all feel a little bit lighter.
