Looking like an eight-story can of craft beer goodness, Spokane's No-Li Brewhouse took over the Nasdaq digital billboard in New York's Times Square for "National IPA Day."
No Li owner John Bryant told the Spokesman Review that the moment was "such a statement for the greatness of Spokane. This is a pretty epic day."

While seeing No Li light up the Big Apple may be unexpected, it also makes perfect sense for National IPA Day. The small-town brewery is a juggernaut in the category. In 2021 alone, No Li won 58 international brewing medals, giving Australia, Japan, Germany and other beer-happy countries a taste of Washington hops.
In addition to the familiar "Born and Raised" iconography of the Riverfront Park Clock Tower, Pavilion, and Gondolas, No Li also gave a strategic visual shout-out to Seattle's Space Needle. The hope is that people will now make the connection that the Emerald City has a sibling in the Lilac City. And that it's worth visiting.
We want to congratulate No Li Brewery for being a Northwest original, true to their Spokane roots, and for leveling up once again. You make us all look good.
LOOK: Best Beers From Every State
To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate
, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
