Peaks and Pints Pilot Program: Icicles On the Fly
Icicle Brewing Co. sits frozen in the Bavarian theme park known as Leavenworth, Washington, which seems perhaps the most appropriate place for a brewery. Founded in 2010 by Pamela and Oliver Brulotte, Icicle continues to be a 100 percent family and employee-owned production brewery and brewpub. The brewery draws water from nearby Icicle Creek, a run-off from surrounded by numerous mountain ranges including the Stuart Range and Wenatchee Mountains. Owner Oliver Brulotte has deep family roots in Washington’s hop farming history. With a focus on sustainability and community, the brewery is a 1 percent for the Planet Member and is the first small craft brewery in the state to close the loop on its CO2 emissions with carbon capture technology. Today, Peaks and Pints offers a to-go flight of Icicle beer that we call Peaks and Pints Pilot Program: Icicles On the Fly.
