A great craft beer company, Steamworks was founded by Eli Gershkovitch in 1995. He began his venture into brewing as a pub owner (WingsJournal). Recalling his experiences during a European trip, he decided to try his hand at craft beer. Today, Steamworks produces thirteen varieties of craft beer, three of which are well known: Pumpkin Ale, Flagship IPA and Tall Can Mash Up.
The greatest proof that Canadian craft beer is very popular among consumers is in the sales, but it is also reflected in its acceptance among its competitors. In the 2017 U.S. Open Beer Championship, Canadian beers won 24 awards and 10 gold medals. Eli Gershkovitch and other Canadian brew masters competed against other breweries from all over the world. Steamworks is now sold all over Canada and in fourteen states in the U.S. For two years in a row, Steamworks led by Eli Gershkovitch has been awarded the title of Best BC Craft Beer by BC Craft Beer Awards. In 2013, Steamworks Pumpkin Ale received a gold medal at the Canadian Brewing Awards.
Steamworks along with its Canadian brew master competitors are creating the newest taste in craft beer. Canada and Eli Gershkovitch’s Steamworks are constantly developing tasty new lagers, pilsners, and ales that are steadily putting North America ahead of the world’s craft beer brewmasters.
