Spokane, WAÔÇª No-Li Brewhouse, crosses the border with Modern Malt Distributing in Canada, forging an international partnership. No-Li will start selling 22 oz bombers of Born and Raised IPA, Silent Treatment Pale Ale, and Crystal Bitter ESB in Canada. In response to international customers loading up cars, vans and SUV’s with No-Li beers in border towns across the Pacific N.W., and correspondingly strong sales, No-Li decided it was time to take beer to their Canadian friends and neighbors that have a thirst for Spokane-Style beers.
No-Li National & International Sales Manager, Dylan McDonald, comments: “Canadians have been bootlegging our beer across the border like ‘Smokey & The Bandit’ for awhile now. It’s time to legally bring Spokane-Style brews to Canadian beer lovers!“
After bringing home nine international awards in their freshman year, No-Li continues to push innovation and growth. The brewery’s new 12 oz bottle, Imperial Series 4-packs, which includes Jet Star Imperial IPA and Wrecking Ball Imperial Stout, seasonal 22 oz bomber Expo Series, and small-batch, draft-only, “No Boundaries” pilot series, appeals to the customer’s demand for fresh, new products.
The brewery’s innovation has boosted No-Li’s already fast-paced growth. As a result, the brewery added two new 60-barrel fermentation tanks, and a 60-barrel brite beer tank, in the last several months. The brewery has plans to install three more 60-barrel tanks by Spring 2014.
