Ted Marti 2005The Ultimate Outlaw! Ted is a 5th generation descendant of August Schell. Ted and his ancestors are part of the reason we are all here in the first place. In Outlaw fashion Ted runs a small regional brewery in a small Minnesota town. He continues to stand up the big beer barrons who have run most of his contemporaries out of business a long time ago. He maintains Schell Brg. Co. as an independent family owned business. He makes the kind of beers the big boys can't even dream about, plus Schell's Original. And recently when Minnesota Brg. Co. went bankrupt, Ted purchased the Grain Belt label and is preserving it's Minnesota heritage as well as it's great taste. Were it not for Ted and Schell's Brg. Co. the Border Batch and Outlaws would have no home and no namesake brewery. Prosit!
