May 2007 - This was a bit tricky to find, in an out-of-the-way converted warehouse, colocated with a Thai restaurant. Ate dinner at the bar. The food was average to good (wife’s prime rib was swimming in sauce, but good ... my burger was good). Service came with a bit of a "I don’t care" attitude, but in the end was good enough, too. Most importantly, the beers were tasty!

Visited later on a Wednesday evening. Located Inside of a converted warehouse mall sort of thing setup. Around the corner from Ramblin’ Road. Not immediately obvious where No-Li was, it’s in the back half of the building, There was a traditional bar to the left, and a smaller “River Room” to the right. Outside the river room is a sprawling outdoor beer garden which had a nice view of the river. Chill tables, adirondack chairs, gas fires, etc. I visited on a beautiful early summer evening and this location was perfect. Extensive menu of both beer (11 house, one Rogue guest) and food - I had the session IPA and it was solid. Service was fantastic - very engaging. After I asked for my bill, she brought me two samples and a Spokane Ale Trail map because I seemed into beer. Very cool. I had a nice time here.
76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

We arrived late afternoon in Spokane Washington as they where also suffering from a sudden explosion of the sun and the heat index was way over 100 degrees. So what was in order? Yep you guessed correct cold beer was needed and Northern Lights Brewing was the next stop. Tucked in the heart of Spokane Northern Lights was a perfect stop. I was greeted with a sample tray of 10 different beer and all very good. The light pale ales where wonderful the Huckleberry crème was very tasty and fruity with the dark stout full of life and hit the spot. I had dinner here and the food was very tasty and pub faire which is what I love. They did have a spendy section but I stayed with a burger and that was perfect. This place from what I can see can get packed so get there early and if you have time hit the distillery next door. Dry Fly distilling the first Micro Distiller in Washington state. They have some wonderful products and samples to go around Vodka, Gin and even some special Whiskey. This is a great little place in itself and just adds to the whole Spokane experience. So get some beer take a tour of the distillery and brewery and have a great time. This was also connected to about 2-3 different restaurants all with different flair so you can find some great food for what ever your taste. So at the end of a great day hit the brewery and have a great time good food and an awesome pub atmosphere. Oh I all most forgot to mention it is ok to bring the kids.

As stated before, this is easy to miss if your not looking for it. It’s in an old warehouse next to the river, sitting off Trent. The bar and seating area it big with plenty of seating and a few TV’s. The food we had was good (calamari and jambalya. The beer was good.

As wulfhere already described, in a warehouse coupled along with another lounge and a Thai restaurant. The brewpub seems like a cornered off piece of the building, not that official, but there’s plenty of seating and a big bar. Average selection with the usuals plus a seasonal. Friendly service. We came during a slow part of the day and didn’t eat anything, so not a great coverage of this place. I like how easy it is to get back to the Interstate from here.

Relaxd riverside place with big patio and relaxed atmosphere. Food was well prepared, but not adventurous. The beers were correct, but not stunning. Nice place, but not a destination in itself.

Old area in Spokane. Says Northern Lights on the end of a warehouse that looks deserted. In front the parking lot is full and the pub is inside with a couple of offices and a Tai restaurant. Food was OK.

I’m a huge fan of brewpubs, and this one did not disappoint. I was generally a fan of the food here and had a pleasant meal. They’ve got a great sampler option where you can try everything they have on tap. Definitely worth stopping in to try their beer.

Kind of weird place. You walk into a building, No not the coffee place, no not the Thai place, Oh here it is Northern Lights, here’s the big neon sign. A bar with lots of tables. Definitley a college place. People taking shots more than drinking beer.Beer was decent though and the waitstaff were all pretty ladies, they didn’t know so much about the beer but who cares. All in all a good experience but this place certainly does not have a normal brewpub feel.
