Icicle Brewing Releases Dark Persuasion German Chocolate Cake Ale


Leavenworth, WA — Icicle Brewing Company is proud to make it’s newly award-winning and exciting beer, Dark Persuasion, available outside of their tasting room. For three years now, Icicle Brewing Company has brewed Dark Persuasion as a winter seasonal and as a flagship. But for the first time, they are bottling this magical elixir and making it available for distribution!

The timing of this release comes on the heels of the Dark Persuasion taking GOLD in the Chocolate/Cocoa category at the United States Open Beer Championships! (http://www.usopenbeer.com/) A total of 562 beers from 146 breweries were examined across 15 different beer categories. Within each category, the USBTC determined both a Grand Champion and the best entry from each of six U.S. regions: 1) Northeast, 2) Mid- Atlantic/Southeast, 3) Midwest, 4) Rockies/Southwest, 5) California, and 6) Northwest/Pacific. Our beloved Dark Persuasion topped the list in its category walking away a GRAND CHAMPION! As if you needed another reason to bring this beer home with you…


“50 Shades of Risqué”

Delicate dark chocolate with a whisper of coconut… You know you want it, go ahead and indulge. You can finally have German Chocolate Cake and drink it too. There’s no need to be nervous, it’s just wickedly deep and full of flavor and desire. With its provocative aroma and smooth body, this is certainly the darkest of fifty shades of risqué.
