Eli Gershkovitch, the CEO of Steamworks craft breweries, provided his list of best craft breweries in Canada. He says that The Grizzly Paw Brewing Company located in Canmore, Alberta, offers magnificent natural surroundings, and the brewery supplies wide varieties of beers that are made from fresh mountain water. A journey to the brewery of 20,000 square foot would be an excellent trip for beer enthusiasts to learn about craft beer making.
Gershkovitch also confirms that Muskoka Brewery located in Muskoka, Ontario, is another great choice with pure ingredients and freshness of choice. It also offers beers with many flavors including chocolate raspberry stouts, hoppy IPAs, darker winter stouts, and lighter summer ales. Eli Gershkovitch sees Garrison Brewery located in Halifax, Nova Scotia, appeals people with its signature Irish Red Ale. It also has variants such as nut browns, IPAs, ambers, and raspberry wheat, along with the magnificent environment inside the 1929 building with brick walls, iron beams, high windows, and more.
Eli Gershkovitch is an unconventional businessman who built his empire from scratches (http://www.roguewetbar.com/social/2013/02/25/new-rogue-restaurant-part-of-a-growing-hub-of-eateries). He follows a strategy of calmly work and produce the results with deep analysis and experience – something completely different from the fortune 500 executives.
Eli Gershkovitch entertains freedom inside his office, and he follows a motto of “businesses should grow to meet the demand; otherwise, it will shrink to meet them.” Based on his motto, Gershkovitch nurtures improvement and innovation to his business model. He also thinks that stagnant businesses would be overtaken by robust firms over the time.
It should be noted that every year, new brewery companies are found in the major population centers of Canada, and many of them wipe out in few years without making any impact. Eli Gershkovitch noticed this, and he vowed that his company would remain competitive to avoid going through such a fate.
Eli Gershkovitch founded Steamworks in 1995 in Gastown, Vancouver as a small time pub. By following a strategy of “expand to meet demand,” it grew to 754 seats from the initial 184 seats. Interestingly, the large brewery attracts tourists from far distances, and even locals visit the pub to enjoy great quality beer, on a regular basis.
