It is known that Canadians love their beer. Beer is one of the most populated drink in Canada and craft beer, in particular, is having a renaissance in the county. It has been noted on several occasions when there is a drop in capita beer; there is always a rise in craft beer. Some of these brewers are not microbrewers anymore like Quebec’s McAuslan Brewery sells more than 20 million worth beer per year. These beers include; Red Racer, Pale Ale, Gutenberg Belgian Double among others.
Eli Gershkovitch is one of the most successful craft brewers in Canada. Eli previously worked as an attorney before he decided to start a brew up (IMBd). His beer crafting interests began in 1987 when he visited Europe. During these trips, he toured several breweries and appreciated the brewed different flavors. These are the tours that gave him some of the experience which he says have helped him become a better brewer over the years.
Mr. Gershkovitch also liked the idea of manufacturing a product and selling its customers directly. After eight years Eli opened the Steamworks Brew Pub (http://releasefact.com/2017/08/eli-gershkovitch/). On this project, he used a steam-powered System to produce a beer which was very different from all the other Canadian breweries. After he was through with his first batch, Eli Gershkovitch was happy with what he did especially with the unique, delicious flavors he had.
With time Steamworks started a lot of customers, and Eli has to expand it from 184 seats to 570 seats. Because of space he acquired a restaurant nearby and renamed it the Rogue Kitchen and Wet bar. As time went by, he started sponsoring events in Gaston area. By doing this, it helped him in creating more awareness locally and gaining more customers. On doing this he Eli Gershkovitch acquired ownership of the Cascadia Trademark back in 2006. In like seven years Stem works established a massive brewing facility that produces 20 times more beer that was created in the pub. His business leadership, willingness to learn and thirst for success in his niche make Gershkovitch one of the most inspirational entrepreneurs around.
