A-Pine is all part of a bigger picture
Tradition is a big part of Rick Beyer's life, and the A-Pine Restaurant is only a small part of it.
The Beyer family was a restaurant family. It all started with a great-grandfather who opened a hotel, bar and meat market across from the Great Northwest Railroad in New Ulm in 1911. As is often the case, that restaurant became a family affair. Beyer's great-grandfather, grandfather and great-uncles ran the business, which was called Beyer Brothers Grocery and North Western Hotel.
