Craft Beer From Canada

Craft beer is simply defined as beer produced from a microbrewery. Micro indicating that it is a small brewery that manufactures smaller amounts of beer than the macrobreweries. In 1982 the first Canadian craft brewery was created in Vancouver. It was a little company called “Horseshoe Bay Brewing” which is now gone, but there have been plenty of new microbrewers. We’ve compiled for you a list of our favorite microbrews coming from Canada.

Mr. Gershkovitch was also a major factor in transforming his environment for the better by investing in his community.

 

Eli Gershkobitch is a passionate thinker who’s brewery has created over 11 different beers (http://www.westender.com/eat-drink/steamworks-is-much-more-than-a-brew-pub-1.879352). Eli Gershkovitch has amassed an impressive classic car collection and owns two personal planes. In 1993 after obtaining his pilot’s license he fulfilled a childhood dream of flying.

 

What Makes a Good Craft Beer?

We feel that the characteristics of a good microbrew begin with a brewery that focuses on their technique, flavor profile, and quality. These are the factors involved in creating a top shelf brand.

 

For the brewery, a good craft beer begins with the ingredients which are much more than just malt, hops, yeast, and water. The end product should be pleasing in appearance, aroma, texture, and flavor.
