Eli Gershkovitch Builds Top Beer Company

Canadian Craft Beer is a beverage that makes up about 10% of the entire beer market in Canada. Over the last few years, there has been a lot of rapid growth in popularity of this type of beer product. Beginning in the year 2006, there were 88 establishments in Canada that produced and distributed craft beer. The Canadian craft beer increased by a considerable margin in 2015 and surpassed other beverages such as the fermented fruit drink brew cider. One of the reasons for the rapid growth of craft beer is that microbreweries open up as frequently as one closes down. Canadian craft beer is packaged in cans and bottles such as the Growler jug.


Eli Gershkovitch is the founder of Steamworks Craft Breweries which has emerged as one of the most well-known craft brewery companies in the nation (imbd). He attended law school but chose to pursue entrepreneurship instead. The experience that led to him pursuing entrepreneurship was when he enrolled at the Universite de Ski to attend classes in art. While attending art classes in Belgium, he begins to drink Belgian beer. After visiting a microbrewery in Germany, he was interested in learning more about the beer industry and how to brew it.


Once he visited the microbrewery, Eli was determined to start his own brewing company in Canada. In 1995, he opened up a company called Steamworks Group (https://twitter.com/steamleader). This company would make craft beers that were very popular in the Canadian market. Once he founded his beer company, Eli used his law school knowledge to keep up with all of the legal work for his company. This allowed him to protect his recipe and any patents that he has over his products.


Along with founding a brewing company, Eli also owns a restaurant in Gastown. What has allowed Eli to become a successful businessman is his drive and desire to produce in-demand products that people enjoy. Over the course of his career as an entrepreneur, Eli has been able to produce 15 to 17 new years each year for his brewing company. With his beer products being very popular, he is very happy that his products are making a positive impact on consumers.
