Canadian Craft Beer

The beer has been in the market for the longest time. It is a beverage enjoyed by many as a pastime, especially in the Canadian society. Canadians are known for their love of beer and in the course of time, it has become the most popular alcoholic beverage in the country. However, the country is starting to adopt a different kind of beer known as craft beer. This type of beer is quickly becoming a favorite for many due to its different flavors. Some of these craft beers include Red Racer Pale manufactured by Central City Brewing, Weissbier manufactured by Denison Brewing Company, Nutcracker manufactured by Black Oak Brewery and many others.


The number of craft beers in the Canadian market is growing by the day. However, one well-known craft beer brewery in Canada is Steamworks Craft Breweries which was founded by Eli Gershkovitch.
