Eli Gershkovitch, CEO of Steam Works Craft Breweries Leaves Law for Beer Brewing
Canadians are known to love three things; the maple syrup, the beaver, and the Canadian beer, which is the most popular alcoholic drink in the country. This explains why they have been improving their beer brewing game over the past few years. In fact, most people, tourists included, believe that this beer alone is worth making the trip down there.
However, expansion of production to other areas is highly welcomed. Some of the most popular brands include the Propeller IPA, which has been ranked world champion three times in a row for its smooth and strong caramel flavor. The Pump House Blueberry Ale is also another favorite of many. Unlike other fruit beers, this ale does not sacrifice the taste of beer by testing more like juice. There is also the St. Andrew’s Oatmeal Stout from Quebec. It is your ideal beer if you want sweet, dark but not very heavy beer.
Eli Gershkovitch left the legal industry to become a manufacturer of the great beer because he was looking to produce something rather than become the grease to the machine. Eli Gershkovitch believed that lawyers do not create something new but rather service the machine hence his desire for much more. Eli Gershkovitch came into this industry early in his life when he was waiting to join the school (http://www.roguewetbar.com/social/2013/02/25/new-rogue-restaurant-part-of-a-growing-hub-of-eateries). Eli Gershkovitch indulged in the business with the little knowledge that it would be the cause for him to leave law so many years later.
Eli Gershkovitch still practices law (CalgaryHerald). He has a wealth of experience in the industry, as he focused on licensing and legislation surrounding brewing. He has combined his experience, contacts and expertise in the industry to serve himself and his interests even better. Eli Gershkovitch continues to excel in this business with plans of expansion always on the way. With a successful bar to his name, he makes quite some profit as tourists stop by to try the remarkable flavors. Eli Gershkovitch does not regret leaving law. In the beer industry, he is making more money and creating something new, living the dream.
