SPOKANE, Wash. — No-Li Brewhouse ended 2012 with a bang and 2013 promises even more innovation, design and construction from the little brewery that could. Four new fermentation and bright beer tanks kick off the year to make room for the rise of new Wrecking Ball imperial Stout, available in 22-ounce bottles and ┬¢ bbl. draft.
“Wrecking Ball is intense!” said Mark Irvin, No-Li brew master and co-founder. “As No-Li continues to push craft beer boundaries with an abundance of fresh, local brewing ingredients, Wrecking Ball is designed and constructed to demolish all preconceived notions. Jet black in color, Wrecking Ball’s chocolate and roasted barely malt dominates the aroma with fruity flavors that follow.”
No-Li ended 2012 impressively, earning accolades as a top brewery to watch in 2013 by Draft Magazine and Crystal Bitter named one of 21 top US Beers of the Year and Best of the Northwest by the Seattle Post Intelligencer, said Callet Ioane, No-Li’s Sales Foreman. The brewery also earned several international awards. In its freshman year, Irvin and No-Li beers earned a gold medal at the 2012 Great American Beer Festival, gold and silver medals at the 2012 Japan International Beer Competition, two silver medals at the 2012 Brussels International Beer Competition and a bronze medal at the 2012 European Beer Star Competition.
