Whether it’s an outdoor barbeque, a weekend at the lake or watching a favorite sport, the preferred beverage is an ice cold beer. And Canadian Eli Gershkovitch, CEO of Steamworks craft breweries, has satisfied his fellow Canadian buds by brewing up some outstanding beers that can fit anyone’s pallet.
Beer connoisseurs all have their special preference for the types and flavors they enjoy. The types may be ales, lagers, stouts, porters or malts. And depending on the moment or the food involved various flavors consist of fruit and spice, crisp, malt, tart and funky, hop, roast, and smoke. Each of these types and flavors paired with the appropriate food choice can make for a very tasteful meal.

Among them are notables-Steamworks Brewery, Vancouver, BC; Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery, Barrie, ON; Driftwood Brewery, Victoria, BC Alley Kat Brewing Company, Edmonton, AB; Strange fellow Brewery, Vancouver, BC; Bad Tattoo Brewing, Penticton, BC; and Parallel 49 Brewing Company, Vancouver, BC.
