Really enjoyed a visit for lunch. A great selection of very good pub fare. Excellent beers. Their location is right on the Spokane River, so I need to come back in warmer weather when the outdoor seating is available.

I visited the No-Li brewhouse a couple weeks ago on my way through Spokane for a couple of beers and some lunch. It's a good place, atmosphere-wise; kind of industrial-looking with brew equipment visible, but clean and relatively new looking. There's also an outside seating area, which would probably be quite nice when there's not a heat wave going on.

I sat at the bar and service was decent. There were 8 beers on tap when I visited, and I enjoyed the hoppy brown ale they had on offer. The beer is pretty good overall, although they blew the last keg of sour cherry ale right before I was able to order some -- not their fault, but I was disappointed.

The food was good. I had the reuben and clam chowder, and it met all my lunch expectations.

A stone's throw from Gonzaga University, in what seems like it could have been an old "open air" market building. The beer vibe was good, but almost felt a little forced. I had a flight of the Usual Suspects with the choice of Monkey, the beers were decent, but as the name suggests, "usual." I have a bottle of their imperial stout, which I'm excited to try. Despite the place being half empty, there were a lot of staff who seemed oddly rather busy. Did not try the food, but glancing at the menu, the options looked intriguing. As I was leaving i walked out back and saw they had some really nice outdoor seating right along the river.

Did a flight of beers late on a Friday night. Beers were good but not great except for one, a barrel aged stout which was excellent. Taproom was spacious and had a good vibe, servers were attentive. Didn't try any food. Will probably return if in the area with not that many choices in the area.

Brewpub was busy on the Wednesday night I went. I went with the No Boundaries flight and tried most of their more extreme beers. Server as able to advise on the pours which was appreciated.

It is more of a Happy Hour crowd than craft customer, but still a nice atmosphere. Food was basic pub grub but enjoyable. The No-Li burger was a winner.

The Spin Cycle and the coffee porter were my favorites. I'd go back here as its a good place to hang at see the Spokane River. I can imagine the Gonzaga students enjoy this place.

Atmosphere - Good vibes, pretty standard pub atmosphere. Well kept, but nothing really cool going on to speak of. The patio by the river is a nice touch though.

Quality - No-Li beers are generally just "okay" across the board, nothing outstanding at all. The high point is their Born and Raised IPA, which is quite solid. Low point is the Wrecking Ball Imperial Stout, which essentially tastes like burned, unsalty soy sauce.

Service - Is always great. Fast, friendly, haven't had any problems.

Selection - They don't exactly have a big lineup, and whenever I'm there it seems like they only have 1 brewpub only beer they're testing out. Pretty boring overall but not bad.

Food - Always pretty good. Nothing mind blowing, just decent pub fare. They make a good burger.

Value - Pretty spendy for what it is; this is where No-Li falters with me. It's just average brew and food for above average money. They only sell 4-packs and bombers which I feel are a bit pricey for the quality.

I like the atmosphere and layout here. Spacious, spread out, and the outside patio next to the water is nice. I just can't get into their beers. I've had an occasional bomber of theirs over many years and finally visited the place.
I had the sample selection of my choice of 6, including the Imperials. The beers are good but just seem designed to achieve an acceptable goal as opposed to pleasing the palate of a discriminate beer lover.
