About the Flight Selection
Icicle Brewing Co. | Leavenworth, WA | 8.5% ABV |22 IBU | $6.49/22oz
A limited-release Biére de Garde style known in France as a “beer for keeping.” This #WAbeer asks, “Are you “barley” staying afloat in the seas of watered down beers?” Lucky for you, the brewers at Icicle are on Beerwatch 24/7 and have come to the rescue with a French style of beer that starts sweet and finishes dry. They’ve brewed a bronzed stud muffin running slow motion in the sand that delicately pulls you from the dangerous waters off Cheap Beer Isle. Don’t thank us— we’re just doing our job and keeping you safe, one great beer at a time.
Duchesse de Bourgogne
Verhaeghe | West-Vlaanderen, Belgium | 6% ABV | $13.99/25.4oz
