No-Li Brewhouse was founded when co-founder/master brewer Mark Irvin forged a partnership with John Bryant, a Washington native and craft brewery veteran with over 20 years of experience. No-Li prides itself on brews that are globally inspired and locally sourced from an area that is home to some of the world’s best hop and malt growing grains. The brewery has developed a portfolio of “Fib Free AlesTM” that reflect the honest living and tough work ethic of the area. In April of 2013, No-Li received federal approval for the beer classification, “Spokane Style Beer”, a federally recognized style for beers made in Spokane, by Spokane residents, with ingredients sourced from within 300 miles of the area.
In its first year, No-Li Brewhouse brought home nine international awards, including a gold medal from the 2012 Great American Beer Festival for Crystal Bitter ESB. No-Li was named a “2013 Brewery to Watch” by Draft Magazine, and their portfolio continues to earn top recognition in the beer industry.
“We are very excited to bring these wonderful Spokane, Washington beers to North Texas”, says Bob Sullivan, Vice President of Craft Beer Brand Building. “Mark is a gifted brewer, and John Bryant is one of the most talented craft brewery executives and leaders of the past 20 years.”
In addition to the state of Washington, No-Li distributes to Idaho, Oregon, Alaska, Colorado, Ohio, Maryland, Delaware, Washington, D.C., North Carolina, and Hawaii, as well as internationally in Canada. Packages include 22oz bombers and draft, as well as 12oz bottle 4-packs.
No-Li Brewhouse produced roughly 5,800 barrels in 2013, up from 2,400 barrels the previous year. No-Li expects to double its growth in 2014, and Andrews Distributing is looking forward to extending the success of this world-class brewery into the Texas market. Distribution of the No-Li portfolio will begin April 7th.
