SPOKANE, WA – ”Spokane Style” beers from No-Li Brewery made a splash around the globe in their first year with nine awards in four continents. The most recent accolades came from down under at the Australian International Beer Awards (AIBA) where three No-Li brews won medals.
The AIBA awards come after being recognized at several prestigious beer competitions from the U.S. to Asia. No-Li’s Crystal Bitter, Silent Treatment Pale and Born & Raised IPA were given awards at 2012 Great American Beer Festival, 2012 Japan International Beer Competition, European Beer Star Competition and the Brussels International Beer Challenge. Far and wide, the federally recognized “Spokane-Style” has been introduced for all to enjoy.
“Spokane-Style” is a beer style classification for brews that are made in Spokane, Wash. by local residents. Each beer is made exclusively with ingredients from the region.
“We loved getting the chance to share what we brew in Spokane all over the world,” said Mark Irvin, co-founder of No-Li Brewery. “We are the little craft brewery that couldÔÇªand we did, 22-ounces at a time.”
No-Li’s Crystal Bitter ESB took home the most awards, including two gold medals from Great American Beer Festival and Japan International Beer Competition.
What’s inside the 22-ounce bottles isn’t the only aspect of No-Li that has the world talking. No-Li beer bottles were recently awarded one of the best labels ever by CoolMaterial.com, a website that scours the Internet for the latest trends for men. Started in 2008, this website has developed a large web presence with over 96 thousand likes on Facebook and over 26 thousand followers on Twitter.
