Eli Gershkovitch steams forward in the craft brewing business

Craft beers are here to stay. They seemed to pop up overnight and today you can find a craft beer to please any palate. Canada hosts a wide selection of craft breweries which turn out some tasty brews (Facebook). With names like Peach Braggot, Paranormal Imperial Pumpkin Ale, and maple porter, I think I need to attend a tasting. The first on my list would have to be The Manifesto Triple Chocolate Stout, I’m a chocolate lover.


One Brewery making its mark in Canada is the Steamworks Brewery owned by Eli Gershkovitch. In 1995 he opened a pub that seated 184 guests and has grown into a landmark, attracting tourists, and now able to seat a whopping 754 guests. In 2013 Steamworks became an authentic brewery. Eli now has several local businesses that all serve Steamworks craft beers. Steamworks Brewery gained its name from the brewing process. It was one of the only establishments using the power of steam to brew its beers.

Eli got his inspiration for craft beers after traveling through Europe and visiting his first microbrewery. At that time craft brews were not widely available in Canada but were becoming quite popular in other areas of the world. Who knew that this trip would later lead to turning Eli Gershkovitch into a Master Brewer. His craft beer creations have won numerous awards and his businesses are flourishing.


Being CEO and owning Steamworks brewery is not Eli’s only success. Eli is also a Lawyer, which assisted him in starting his brewery. He has a pilots license, owns two planes, and loves taking to the skies. When he is on the ground and not working, he sponsors events in his Gastown, Vancouver neighborhood where his pub is located. The area has seen a revitalization with the growth of the pub. His drive, sense of adventure, and ability to take risks has lead to many successes for this very busy entrepreneur.
