Minneapolis' Grain Belt sign to be re-lit in 2017


The lights of Minneapolis’ landmark Grain Belt beer sign should glow again in summer 2017, after the beer brand’s brewer recently finalized its purchase of both the sign and the piece of Nicollet Island that it sits on.

The purchase was a long time coming for August Schell Brewing Co. of New Ulm, Minn., which bought the Grain Belt brand in 2002 and immediately began looking into lighting up the sign. The company announced in late 2014 that it intended to buy the sign from the Eastman Family Trust, but it took more than a year to close the deal with the descendants of the family that once owned all of Nicollet Island.
