Having come to birth in 1995, Steamworks brewing company started off at Gastown location in Vancouver and is indeed a beer-brewing powerhouse as far as beer brewing is concerned. The founder and CEO of Steamworks brewery is none other than Eli Gershkovitch and is attributed as the brains behind all this. From the 2,000 hectoliters Steamworks was initially producing, Eli Gershkovitch increased production and efficiency so much so, that by 2013, Steamworks was producing 40,000 hectoliters. As of now, Steamworks brewery has increased its products to multiple varieties of beer including Pale Ale, Pilsner beer, Heroic Red-Ale, Tall-Can Mash Up, just to mention a few as well as other seasonal releases.
Eli Gershkovitch is indeed accomplished and his success is tangible and indisputable. Having gone to law school and graduating with a degree in Law, Eli Gershkovitch proved he is indeed book-smart and even more to this, he enrolled for art classes which sharpened his eye for opportunities. This is evident for when he first visited Heidelberg in Germany, he tasted Belgian beer and described the experience as an epiphany which later helped him to start the Steamworks brewing company.
Under the management of Eli Gershkovitch, Steamworks company has boosted it sales revenue by 50% and has been put on the global map thanks to its unique and wide variety of its products. This has further led to market penetration into other countries such as the U.S, Germany, Canada, and Italy just to mention a few. Despite all this success, Eli Gershkovitch has still found a way to put his Law Degree into use as he practiced legal works under liquor licenses which helped in the protection and the patenting of his brewery invention.
While still on achievements, Eli Gershkovitch is a certified pilot having obtained his pilot license in 1993 and in 2009 he obtained his wings, having flown from Vancouver to Europe and back. So in essence having been certified as a pilot and taking a keen interest in art classes, It is conclusive that Eli Gershkovitch is both artistic and passionate in his endeavors and that can be partly accredited to the success of Steamworks Brewing Companies (YouTube).
Given the steady progress of Steamworks Craft Breweries, the future for Steamworks looks bright, owing its success to constant growth in the past and the leadership of its founder, Eli Gershkovitch (http://www.steamworks.com/brewery).
