The Brewers Association and the US Department of Agriculture have selected No-Li Brewhouse for an international showcase and trade mission that will provide the opportunity to export its beers to several countries.
The USDA and the Brewers Association have selected a handful of American breweries to participate in the first-ever showcase and trade mission, according to a press release from No-Li.
The breweries selected for the showcase and trade mission will be able to develop international exports to China, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland and the Netherlands.
“It’s great for the community and the craft brewery in Spokane,” said No-Li owner John Bryan. “It helps put this city and this region on the map to create some of the best beers in the world.
Bryant hopes that international recognition through the trade mission will open the doors of tourism to Spokane and, in turn, generate hotel stays and visits to other breweries and restaurants in Lilac City.
“This is just an expansion of cultural development and building an international economy in Spokane,” he said. “This is exciting stuff. “
No-Li recently won medals at the Japan International Beer Cup 2021, which brought together more than 1,000 beers from 25 countries.
No-Li won a silver medal for his Wrecking Ball Imperial Stout and a bronze medal for his IPA Threezy Does It Hazy.
Bryant’s career in the brewing industry began with Rainier Brewing Co. in Seattle in 1989.
