March 24, 2014 - 12:33 PMMark Irvin started the brewery now known as No-Li Brewhouse in 1993. For nearly 20 years it was known as Northern Lights Brewing. The brewery and brewpub on the Spokane River underwent a massive rebranding in 2012, when Mark brought on a new business partner, John Bryant. Soon thereafter, the name was changed to No-Li Brewhouse.
John played a key role in building and promoting several breweries in his career. He helped advance such notable brands as Deschutes Brewery, Odell Brewing, and Oskar Blues Brewing. For John the move back to Spokane represented something of a homecoming. Both he and his wife are from the area.
Since changing the name and brand, No-Li Brewhouse has been on an impressive growth trajectory. Not only has the brewery itself grown, but so has distribution and, hence, product availability.
No-Li Brewhouse is a brewery and pub located on the banks of the Spokane River near Gonzaga University, just a few minutes east of downtown Spokane. Along with beer and food, the brewery offers an excellent beer garden right along the river's edge.
