Icicle Brewing Company, located in the mountain town of Leavenworth, Washington, strives to use local ingredients whenever possible. The water for their beer comes from Icicle Creek which flows into the Wenatchee River less than a mile from the brewery. The bulk of the malted barley comes from a maltster in the Okanagan Valley and their hops arrive from the Yakima Valley where brewery owner Oliver Brulotte was born and raised. They even get their yeast from a laboratory located in the Columbia River Gorge!
