Peaks and Pints Pilot Program: Icicle Beer Flight


Founded in 2010 by Pamela and Oliver Brulotte, Icicle Brewing continues to be a 100 percent family and employee-owned production brewery and brewpub in Leavenworth, Washington. 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: Icicle Beer Flight.

Peaks and Pints Pilot Program: Icicle Beer Flight

Icicle Colchuck Raspberry Wheat

5% ABV, 17 IBU

Colchuck Raspberry Wheat is Icicle’s Colchuck wheat beer with an abundance of Pacific Northwest raspberries, adding a slight sweetness and tartness to the transition.

Icicle Dark Persuasion

6.5% ABV, 22 IBU

You can finally have your cake and drink it too! Icicle Dark Persuasion is brewed with rich coconut, vanilla, and cacao nibs, which evoke flavors of liquid German chocolate cake. Dark roasted specialty malts enhance the chocolate character and Warrior hops balance the sweet, milk sugar and malty goodness, making this milk stout decadent and drinkable. Seriously, this stout tastes exactly like German chocolate brownie, with strong chocolate and coconut notes, a touch of vanilla and a smooth finish.

Icicle Alpenhaze Hazy IPA

6.3% ABV, 30 IBU

Icicle’s signature hazy is a bright, tropical, and juicy IPA brewed with Mosaic, Citra, El Dorado, and Simcoe hops, giving it notes of mango, pineapple, tangerine, and apricot that excite the nose and palate. The malt profile provides a body that ends each sip with a light and pillowy mouthfeel.

Icicle Enchantments Double Hazy IPA

8% ABV, 30 IBU

Icicle’s Enchantments Hazy IPA Series bumps up the alcohol by volume on this one offering a double IPA with a staggering amount of Mosaic, Citra, Motueka, El Dorado, and Simcoe hops for notes and aromas of bright orange, stone fruit, and mango with a refreshing tropical finish.=

Icicle Kickstand Pale Ale

4.5% ABV, 50 IBU

“You can’t deny the value of a cruiser bike’s kickstand. We put that same undeniable value into our newest beer, Kickstand Citra Pale,” states icicle’s description of their pale ale. It’s a highly drinkable pale ale packed with citrus flavors and aromas. The beer stands firmly on a foundation of Warrior hops for a pleasantly bitter base and then cruises to its destination on the cone-tails of Citra hops. Kick back at Peaks and Pints and enjoy the Leavenworth brewery’s easy drinking ode to the little piece of metal that keeps your cruiser classy.

Icicle Peak Seeker Double IPA — Basecamp

7.7% ABV, 65 IBU

Icicle’s West Coast Peak Seeker IPA series that works the same as their Enchantments Hazy IPA series, with a new variant being released every quarter. The seventh release is an adventurous double IPA brewed with Nelson, Mosaic, Citra, and Simcoe hops for bold tropical notes and aromas of citrus and a medley of other tropical fruits.

Icicle Bootjack IPA

6.5% ABV, 64 IBU

Bootjack IPA is a Northwest classic IPA inspired by the rugged and gentle terrain of the Cascade Mountains. Starting with the pristine waters of Icicle Creek, Icicle adds the intense flavors and aromas of locally grown Yakima hops, pairing the citrusy floral hop notes with a sweet-malty undertone, biscuit malt notes and a resinous linger. This isn’t a pine bomb; instead, you get smooth citrus, lots of fruit, and a hop bitterness that builds slowly, coming to prominence late in the finish.
