During a reception held at the iconic Boeing Museum of Flight in Seattle, No-Li co-owners John and Cindy Bryant accepted the silver award for the state’s top Food/Beverage Processor of the Year. The magazine commended the brewery’s sustainable growth, economic contributions into local communities, collaborative spirit and recent awards of 2016 Washington State Craft Brewery of the Year and 2015 National Distributor Partner of the Year.
The award comes at a time when the community-focused and family-owned brewery has seen its team grow to 60 employees in Spokane and elsewhere in Washington state and production grow to approximately 13,000 barrels in 2017. No-Li has expanded into cans for four of its beers and is recognized as a pioneer of first-ever community collaborations with the Spokane Symphony and Crave NW Culinary Festival.
But despite the regional growth No-Li has experienced, John Bryant says that he’s most proud of No-Li’s continued focus on bolstering Spokane’s craft beer boom, which has proved to be an economic driver for the region.
“No-Li Brewhouse is passionate about community. We believe in a communal spirit brought together through craft beer. We are proud to be an integral part of a new craft beer economy that creates new jobs and brings smiles to beer enthusiasts,” said Bryant upon receiving the award from Seattle Business this week.
Part of No-Li’s devotion to the Spokane community extends beyond providing tasty beers. The brewery has also raised thousands of dollars for families in need through special beer events, and also donated countless man hours to the community through its Giving from the Source program.
No-Li Brewhouse is located at 1003 Trent Ave., Spokane, Wash, 99202.
