Achievements of Eli Gershkotvich; The CEO of Steamworks Craft Breweries

A brewery is a business enterprise that mainly deals with production and sale of different types of beer. Production of beer is done through fermenting a mixture of cereal grains such as barley, wheat, rye, corn or rice, hops, and water with yeast. Brewing was a cottage industry in the past. Production of beer took place at home. New brewery plants have been established to constitute workers who are dedicated to producing and selling beer over the years.


Brewing companies significantly differ in the volume and variety of beer that they produce. They are either classified as small breweries such as Ringwood brewery or as massive multinational conglomerates such as SABMiller, Anheuser-Busch InBev, and Heineken International. The types of beer that is produced differ in color, flavor, the method of production, ingredients, and origin. The most notable variety of beer includes ales, lagers, stouts, porters, and malt.
