To me, this seems like more of a "tourist trap" brewery than a "we like beer and people who like beer" brewery. Wife and I stopped in, and they had 8 of their own beers on draught, which they sold for $12. Not horrific, but not very good. There was VERY little seating inside, which was upsetting on a cold winter night, where we were banished to the outside. There were not enough heaters outside, either, to make it comfortable. There were small amounts of food, but it was severely overpriced ($3 for a small bowl of pretzel sticks out of a store bag). The beer was decent, but it was not a fun experience there.

(Visited 09/2012): Icicle Brewing is located in Leavenworth which is about 2 hours east of Seattle. It is at the end of Front Street amidst an idyllic Bavarian village. Street parking and a few lots nearby.
There is a patio in front that offers a view unfortunately of an ugly building across the street. Inside there is a walk up bar and tasting room, and behind that there is a view of the brewery. There is a large board behind the bar listing the beers. Cool tap handles too.
Icicle has 7 beers on tap and they are available in a sampler for $7. They include a Kölsch, Lager, Amber, Wheat, IPA, Porter and a Fresh Hop seasonal and oak-aged Porter on my visit. All of the beers are enjoyable. They offer different methods of take-away beer too including a thermos.
Service on my visit was knowledgeable and very friendly.
We did not have any food on our visit.
All in all this is a great spot to visit in the Wenatchee forest area.
