Pop Chart Lab of Brooklyn, NY recently released limited edition prints of their ‘Breweries of the United States’ poster. They call it “The most comprehensive mapping of the breweries of the USA ever compiled…” But zoom in on Spokane, WA and you’ll see something is missing. Four gold dots hugging I-90 represent Budge Brothers Brewery, Golden Hills Brewing Co., Iron Goat Brewing Co. and Twelve String Brewing Co. All four companies relatively new to Spokane compared to the surprisingly absent No-Li Brewhouse. No-Li, formerly Northern Lights, has been around since 1993 and recently did some re-branding. Is it possible that the name change is to blame for No-Li’s absence on this “comprehensive” map? Can you spot any other glaring omissions?
