We dig this idea. An economic update of not only a craft brewery’s business performance but of its contributions to the community and its staff. Below is No-Li Brewhouse’s 2018 economic impact report, celebrating a year of customer growth, a second brewery expansion, international brewing recognition, serving communities and financial impact into local and regional economies.
No-Li reported a 10 percent increase in total sales in 2018, donating more than $60,000 to local and state-wide nonprofits, consolidating geographic distribution to Washington State and Idaho and building a second brewing and packaging facility.
“We engage our communities to serve,” said No-Li Marketing Manager Bill Powers. “No-Li Brewhouse pub and brewery is an extension of our community.”
During 2018, No-Li made donations to non-profits such as, Crosswalk, Odyssey Youth Movement, Teen & Youth Closet, Rogers High School, St. Margaret’s Family Shelter and Spokanimal non-profits that support members of our communities with dignity and respect.
No-Li received a 2018 “Community Impact Award” from the Washington Restaurant Association for community outreach.
2018 saw No-Li roll out new beer recipes and brands, including the No-Li Falls Porter six-pack CANS and Corner Coast six-pack CANS.
No-Li’s beer lineup brought home three more international medals during 2018, totaling 29 — a silver and a bronze from the Australian International Beer Awards and a silver at the World Beer Cup with Born & Raised IPA.
The No-Li pub continues to roll out barrel-aged beers from its 80-bbl library, 12 of which were served at No-Li Get Frosted, a month-long small-batch beer and community celebration.
No-Li Brewhouse consolidated all beer availability to only Washington and Idaho markets that created fresher, more local and community minded beers. “We are within a six hour car drive from our farthest customer, and that’s important,” said Powers.
