Beer remains the favorite alcoholic beverage for many. Craft beer is increasingly becoming the drink of choice among the youth and millennials around the world. The fusion of these two factors is driving a renewed drinking culture in Canada. The small brewing industry is experiencing empirical growth. New players are coming up with traditional beers as well as innovative craft beers optimized for the modern palate.
There are numerous options on the market. Red Acer Pale Ale takes the cake in the tartly imperial pale ales. It’s brewed in British Columbia. You can also get the great tasting Weissbier for an authentic taste of Bavarian wheat beer. The light beer is made by Denison’s Brewing in Toronto.
If you are looking for the rich, dark and savory flavors, the St-Ambroise Oatmeal Stout’s roasted barley gives it a tingling character and little aftertaste. It is a product of Brasserie McAuslan in Montreal, Quebec.
Additionally, Canadian breweries scooped the most awards at the recent 2017 U.S. Open Beer Championship. One of the top contenders is Steamworks Brewing headed by Eli Gershkovitch in the CEO position (https://thebrotalk.com/home/eli-gershkovitch-craft-beers/). He has been highlighting craft beer since 1995. He has traveled far and wide tasting and learning about different craft beers from around the world. Eli Gershkovitch is a licensed attorney and an active pilot.
He was the first to run a steam-powered brewery in the country. Eli Gershkovitch was able to utilize his legal advantage to cut through the existing tape that created barriers to such a venture.
