Eli Gershkovitch is the CEO and founder of Steamworks Craft Breweries. He, however, did not start his career right away in the beer industry. He studied law and graduated with a degree. Nevertheless, Eli Gershkovitch dropped law to pursue his entrepreneurial dreams and founded his own company.
His interest came from a trip he took to a microbrewery in Heidelberg, Germany where he got a taste of Belgian beer and its production. Eli Gershkovitch’s law degree has however not gone to waste. While practicing, he became familiar with liquor license laws and this is what has helped him set up and run Steamworks Craft Breweries.
