No-Li Brewhouse is planning to open a beer hall in a space formerly occupied by Dry Fly Distilling near the University District.

No-Li Brewhouse filed a pre-development permit with the city earlier this month to renovate the 3,000-square-foot former Dry Fly Distilling space into a European-style beer hall at 1003 E. Trent Ave., Suite 200, in the Riverwalk building.

Dry Fly Distilling relocated to downtown Spokane where it opened a new production facility and tasting room earlier this year.

No-Li’s beer hall will be adjacent to its existing taproom in the Riverwalk building.

“We are creating it to drive more tourism, economic activity and craft beer excitement in the city of Spokane that would, in turn, fill hotel rooms and local pubs,” said John Bryant, owner of No-Li Brewhouse.

The beer hall will feature No-Li’s craft brews in addition to a rotation of special releases and guest taps from Pacific Northwest breweries, Bryant said.

The beer hall will have a large television and several tall tables. It will not serve food, but instead focus entirely on showcasing craft beers, Bryant said.

Pre-fabrication and design work with artists will begin offsite, and permits for the project are anticipated to be approved next month, Bryant said.

Bryant said he hopes to open the beer hall in March and is planning to host March Madness viewing events in the space.

The project contractor is Spokane-based Dom’s Creative Construction Service LLC. The project architect is Uptic Studios of Spokane.

The total permit valuation for the three buildings is more than $11 million, according to the application.
