Andrews Distributing Co. announced a partnership with No-Li Brewhouse out of Spokane, Wash. Andrews Distributing Co. is the Nation’s eighth largest beer distributorship by volume and the sixth by revenue. Andrews Distributing Companies home office is located in Dallas with operations through north and south Texas. Andrews represents 34 brewing partners and more than 1,100 team members.
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 grains. The brewery has developed a portfolio of “Fib Free Ales” that reflect the honest living and tough work ethic of the area. In April 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.
“We are very excited to bring these wonderful Spokane, Wash., beers to North Texas,” said Bob Sullivan, VP 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.”
In addition to the state of Washington, No-Li distributes to Idaho, Oregon, Alaska, Colorado, Ohio, Maryland, Delaware, Washington, D.C., North Carolina and Hawaii, as well as internationally in Canada. Packages include 22-ounce bombers and draft, as well as 12-ounce bottle 4-packs.
No-Li Brewhouse produced roughly 5,800 barrels (bbls) in 2013, up from 2,400 bbls the previous year. No-Li expects to double its growth in 2014, and Andrews Distributing is looking forward to extending the success of this world-class brewery into the Texas market. Distribution of the No-Li portfolio will begin April 7.
