Justin Weinberg Discusses Relighting of the Grain Belt Sign with KARE 11Print PDFShare
August Schell Brewing Company bought the Grain Belt brand in 2002 and purchased the iconic sign located on Nicollet Island sign last year. Briggs attorney Justin Weinberg represents August Schell Brewing and discussed the relighting of the sign with KARE 11.
“It's definitely going to shine again,” said Weinberg. “This is their brand, and they don’t want to see their brand and something representing their brand go in disrepair. So it makes perfect sense to bring it to modern times.”
The brewery still needs final approval from the city’s Heritage Preservation Commission. If all goes as planned, the sign will be lit by the end of the summer.
