No-Li Brewhouse was selected as one of 85 breweries from around the country to pour their Spokane-Style beers at the 27th Annual Oregon Brewers Festival at Tom McCall Waterfront Park in downtown Portland, Ore., from July 23 to July 27, 2014. This is the first year the brewery is participating in the highly selective beer festival that attracts more than 80,000 people from around the world over five days.
The brewery will feature its recently released Empire No. 8 Session IPA, a 5.5-percent ABV, 67 IBU beer with a strong hop punch and low malt backbone, creating a crisp, hoppy, easy-sipping beer for those hot July Oregon days.
In addition, the brewery is sending three beers for the festival’s Specialty Tent: a Whiskey Barrel-Aged Wrecking Ball Imperial Stout infused with Bourbon Vanilla Beans, Cacao Nibs and Belgian Chocolate, a Rhubarb Saison, and a Dry-Hopped Barrel-Aged Comrade Imperial IPA.
No-Li will be teaming up with local Portland bars throughout the week to put on various events featuring additional specialty beers such as Gemelli Coffee-Infused Barrel-Aged Wrecking Ball Imperial Stout and a Townsend Red Wine Barrel-Aged.
