The ‘little brewery that could,” No-Li Brewhouse wins yet another round of medals, this time from the Brussels International Beer Challenge, adding to its list of accolades already awarded this year from Japan and the granddaddy of them all, the Great American Beer Festival.
Brew master Mark Irvin brews every batch of No-Li. Yes, he personally fires up the brew kettle each morning and is hands-on through each hop addition and dry-hopping. With nearly 50 years of combined brewery experience between co-founders Irvin and John Bryant, the team has earned sophomore brewery credentials in its freshman year.
“Fifty years of craft brewing experience has been discovered. No-Li Brewhouse earns international and U.S. street cred with beer enthusiasts from an Inland Northwest town called Spokane. Wow!” said Irvin. “Scoring hardware at the 2012 Great American Beer Festival, 2012 Brussels International Beer Competition and 2012 Japan International Beer Competition is meaningful, but really it’s the art and science in brewing, brew house innovations and building an enduring culture that is deep-seeded.”
No-Li continues to expand a world-class 30 barrel fermentation cellar that provides for continuous beer creativity and diversity. Success with customers allows the brew house to also serve its co-workers with eye on building quality compensation and benefits, and creating beer industry careers for countless folks.
Born & Raised is the No-Li spirit that has spread to Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Denver, Fort Collins, Seattle and Spokane. The brew house has plans to expand further on the East Coast to New York in spring 2013.
No-Li produces 22-ounce bottles as well as draft brands in four styles: Silent Treatment Pale, Born & Raised IPA, Crystal Bitter and Jet Star Imperial IPA. For more information, visit www.nolibrewhouse.com.
