Eli Gershkovitch: Changing the Beer Market in Canada

Canadian Craft Beer

Canada has a reputation as a beer loving country. Do not mess with a Canadian and his beer. Beer is the country’s most popular alcoholic drink, with craft beer making its way on top. The country takes pride in not only consuming this beer but also in the production of some of the best beers in the market. Companies like Steamworks Craft Breweries, which is led by Eli Gershkovitch, are making big bucks in their production.

In a market that is highly saturated with other types of beers, craft beers seem to be holding up well. So what makes craft beers stand out from other types of beers? Many have attributed the success of craft beer to its different flavors. Some of the beers include;

  • Red Racer Pale Ale, which has Imperial pale ales.
  • Glutenberg Belgian, Double which is Gluten-free.
  • Weissbier. Wheat is used in brewing Weissbier.
  • Nutcracker Porter. Contains Porter which is sweet.

 

This is only but a short list of the different types of craft beers.

 

About Eli Gershkovitch

According to Eli, he needed some time off after graduating from law school, before he settled into his career. This led him to Universitė de ski, where he took some art classes. It was during this time that he became knowledgeable about the Belgian beer and from this; his new found love for beer production was born.

 

Career

Although Eli Gershkovitch is actively involved in his brewing company, he still puts his law degree to good use. His beer company produces 15 to 17 beers in a year and is run by Walter Cosman, who Eli has appointed as President.

 

Eli’s aspiration has always been to build something, and he has achieved this aspiration through Steamworks Breweries. Eli Gershkovitch is a man with a big dream (BeerMe). He hopes to continue tapping into new markets and build an empire. Canada is just his first market.

How Philosophy Helped George Soros Become An Effective Philanthropist

If you are a young person who wants to make a difference in the world the options that exist for doing so often feel overwhelming. How can you know which approach is the best approach to solving critical problems that are impacting people’s lives? Is the best way to solving social issues to work as a lawyer advocating for civil and human rights or as a social worker where you can work with the people who are being impacted by issues like substance abuse and poverty first hand? Like many young people philanthropist George Soros probably found himself dealing with this quandary as a young man in the 1940s and 1950s. He knew firsthand that the world could be a better place as a Jewish person from Hungary who had fled persecution. Soros actually ended up studying at the London School of Economics where he discovered the work of the philosopher Karl Popper. Popper wrote a book that is known as The Open Society and Its Enemies. George Soros read this book as a student at the London School of Economics. The book’s arguments would go on to mold him into the philanthropists and humanitarian that he is today.

The book was an exploration of how societies that were constructed around the ideals of freedom, democracy and civil liberties could succumb to malignant ideologies that opposed these vital concepts. One of the lessons that George Soros mentions learning from Popper’s book The Open Society and Its Enemies is the notion that communities will “flourish only when” they function on the principles of freedom, openness and the protection of human rights. This concept of the open society put forth by Popper would go on to lay the foundation for Soros’ philanthropic work which has been largely concerned with helping societies to remain or to become more open, equitable places. After earning a historic amount of wealth through his work as an investor George Soros would go on to pour that money into programs that promoted the wellbeing of young people, people struggling with mental illnesses, the well being of persecuted minority groups, independent media and education around the world.

Julia Jackson Plants Seeds of Empowerment One Wine at a Time

When it comes to harvesting a successful vintage, whether in wine or in life, Cambria Estate Winery’s Julia Jackson knows that you have to take a long view of things. That philosophy guides her work with the Cambria Seeds of Empowerment, and the wines that her family vineyard produces.

Julia Jackson’s wine education began from a very early age, which is only to be expected since she was literally born into the wine industry. However, it has become one of her own passions as she grew up. She made close friends with a French-speaking daughter of one of her family’s wine making partners, and spent an entire summer in Bordeaux, France, studying the language and learning more about French wines.

She earned a bachelor of art at Scripps College from 2006-2010, and then spent another year studying for her General Management Certificate at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. After that, she became the Spokesperson for her family’s company, Jackson Family Wine, and co-founded Rex Apps, an app that helps people identify trendy bars and restaurants in their area.

As a millennial woman in business, Julia understood that many other women needed a powerful role model, even as she looked up to her own mother, who had founded the Cambria Estate Winery with her father. Her mother’s story and her own dreams inspired her to create the Cambria Seeds of Empowerment scholarship for “warrior women” who overcome life’s challenges and reach out to other women in their communities to help raise them up as well. It awards 100,000 dollars a year in grants to non-profits that share her goals.

Through it all, she stays close to the family roots. One of their wines was named after her, the Cambria Estate Julia’s Vineyard Pinot Noir, which was named Wine of the Year by Wine Enthusiast.
