Andrews Distributing has announced a partnership with the No-Li Brewhouse out of Spokane, Washington. Products from the brewery's portfolio will be available in North Texas beginning April 7.

Initial shipments are expected to include:
Spin Cycle Red Ale
Born & Raised IPA
Jet Star Imperial IPA
Wrecking Ball Imperial Stout

No-Li brews will be sold on draft, as well as in 4-packs of 12-ounce bottles and 22-ounce bombers.

From a press release:

"No-Li Brewhouse was founded when co-founder/master brewer Mark Irvin forged a partnership with John Bryant, a Washington native and craft brewery veteran with over 20 years of experience. No-Li prides itself on brews that are globally inspired and locally sourced from an area that is home to some of the world’s best hop and malt growing [regions]. The brewery has developed a portfolio of “Fib Free Ales” that reflect the honest living and tough work ethic of the area. In April of 2013, No-Li received federal approval for the beer classification, “Spokane Style Beer”, a federally recognized style for beers made in Spokane, by Spokane residents, with ingredients sourced from within 300 miles of the area.

In its first year, No-Li Brewhouse brought home nine international awards, including a gold medal from the 2012 Great American Beer Festival for Crystal Bitter ESB. No-Li was named a "2013 Brewery to Watch” by Draft Magazine, and their portfolio continues to earn top recognition in the beer industry.

'We are very excited to bring these wonderful Spokane, Washington beers to North Texas', says Bob Sullivan, Vice President of Craft Beer Brand Building. 'Mark is a gifted brewer, and John Bryant is one of the most talented craft brewery executives and leaders of the past 20 years.'

No-Li expects to double its growth in 2014, and Andrews Distributing is looking forward to extending the success."
