The Official DC Launch of No-Li Brewhouse - Craft Brewing Pioneers from Takoma, Washington!

We are stoked to be the very first to tap the outstanding ales of No-Li Brewhouse for the Washington, DC area this coming Monday night, October 22nd, at 6 pm! Since 1993, No-Li has been crafting one delicious small batch brew after another, and--with their expansion to include a production facility in addition to the brewpub in 2002--we had high hopes that one day they’d find their way to the east coast and our nation’s capital. Beginning Monday, they finally have...

And, true to form, they are sending no fewer than 11 different No-Li treats on draft for this momentous occasion...in addition to their flagships (Born & Raised IPA, Silent Treatment Pale Ale & Crystal Bitters ESB), they are also sending a slew of rare and intriguing ales like Jet Star Imperial IPA, Blueberry Creme & Chocolate Dunkel, as well as a couple of uber-scarce beauties: Gemelli Coffee Stout & Wrecking Ball!

All No-Li drafts will be priced individually in 4 oz. pours and full glasses. There is no admission fee for the event

The No-Li Brewhouse Launch Draft List:
Gemelli Coffee Stout
Wrecking Ball
Jet Star Imperial IPA
Blueberry Creme
Chocolate Dunkel
Born & Raised IPA
Silent Treatment Pale Ale
Crystal Bitters ESB

Creme Ale
Stellar Stout
No-Li Amber
The No-Li Story from the No-Li Team:
Back in the 1980s, when craft beer was still called microbrew or that weird hippy beer, Mark Irvin fell in love. First, as a military brat living with his family and getting a taste of the rich beer culture of Germany, then as a homebrewer, and then on to brewing for Coeur d’Alene Brewing and Hale’s Ales, Mark fell head over heels for the art and science of brewing beer with character.


In 1993, after years of invaluable brewhouse experience, Mark decided to crack the top on his own small venture, Northern Lights Brewing Company, in his native Spokane. “I could have brewed in Seattle, but I never could have passed up the chance to brew in my hometown and create my own independent style,” says Irvin.
For eight years NLBC made its home in Airway Heights as a production brewery producing primarily draft beer and self-distributing kegs to local restaurants and bars in the Spokane area. In 2002, the NLBC moved to its current location on the Spokane River and began operating the pub in addition to the brewery. The philosophy of the beers naturally spills over into the pub’s offerings: globally inspired, local sourced. That manifests as crisp, regional produce, ingredients raised and produced by our neighbors, and Inland Empire wines to complement our ales.


One other item Mark sourced locally - at the beer-famous Viking Tavern no less - was his wife Stacy. It was love at first beer and Mark is quick to admit NLBC would not exist without his life and business partner Stacy.


In 2012, John Bryant, a craft brewery veteran of 20 plus years, found the magnet that is Spokane irresistible after a long absence from his home state. John helped lead the revolutions at Deschutes, Odell, and Oskar Blues breweries, yet it took less than a pint of Mark Irvin’s ale for him to realize there was something special going on NLBC. “I grew up in Washington, went to WAZZU, and married a Spokane gal,” says Bryant. ”I pretty much bleed crimson and gray. And beer. Really good beer. This opportunity to work alongside master brewer Mark Irvin and move my family back to the Inland Empire is already proving to be the most rewarding move of my career.”


Whether you’ve been drinking Northern Lights since 1993 or you’re imbibing in your first ever No-Li ale, Mark, John and the crew hope the pride they have in their craft and in their hometown shines through.
