Schmidt lager honors the Northwest’s traditions and spirit. Painstakingly brewed and leisurely aged, Schmidt is a full-bodied American-style lager that balances easy drinkability with traditional lager flavor. In 1884, Jacob Schmidt moved to St. Paul, Minnesota and purchased a half interest in the North Star Brewery. Most of these buildings still stand today, looming proudly above the Mississippi River. Schmidt beer is known as the “Official Beer of the American Sportsman”, a slogan capitalizing on the Pacific Northwest’s exciting, rugged appeal. The quality and brewing tradition instilled by Jacob Schmidt, continue today.
