Eli Gershkovitch: The Top Innovator in Canadian Beer

European settlers introduced beer in Canada during the seventh century. In 1668, Jean Talon of France started the first commercial brewery called La Brasseries due Roy. When the prohibition in Canada occurred many commercial brewers suffered. However, new breweries were able to open up by the second half of the 20th century.


One of Canadian’s greatest love is their beer. They take great pride in it, and with it being their most popular alcoholic drink, their annual sales amount to over $9 billion yearly. As a matter of fact, many Canadians have been no longer content with the blandness of some brands, and they have been working harder than ever in recent years in the craft beer game. Some of the craft beers that are rated as among the best include Propeller IPA from Propeller Brewing Company, Pump House Blueberry Ale from Pump House Brewery, St. Ambroise Oatmeal Stout from McAuslan, La Fin Du Monde from Unibroue, and Party Animal from Beyond the Pale (https://medium.com/@eligershkovitch151).
