Nicollet Island, situated in the middle of the mighty Mississippi, is one of the most historic places in Minneapolis. It provides a wonderful place to picnic with incredible views of downtown, the falls and the Stone Arch Bridge.
History of the Grain Belt Sign Around 1938, the Grain Belt logo began to feature a bottle cap behind the red diamond, reflecting the dominance of package beer sales. A couple years later, a giant neon sign depicting the Grain Belt bottle cap logo was erected on the west shore of Nicollet Island, along the Mississippi River on the outskirts of downtown Minneapolis. From blocks away, the sign could be seen flashing G-R-A-I-N B-E-L-T BEER. Although it hasn’t been lit up in years, the sign still greets motorists today.
