Canadian Craft Beers
The demand for craft beers has really shot to a noticeable percentage in Canada. Consumers for craft beers have increased not only in Canada but also in other parts of the world. Brewers have not disappointed either; many brewers have invested their resources into making craft beers, enough to meet the needs of consumers.
The U.S. Open Beer Championships
Brewers compete daily to come up with the best beer to impress consumers. The U.S. Open Beer Championships is one of the competitions many brewers participate in to be recognized as the best beer makers. The Canadian breweries also participate in these competitions and in the 2017 competition; Canadian breweries bagged over 24 medals in various categories of the competition.
Steamworks Brewers, a brewery company based in Canada, was on the front line in acquiring medals for their different kinds of crafted beers (VancouverFoodster). Eli Gershkovitch, the owner of Steamworks Brewers, acknowledges that the recognition is a huge step towards the growth of their craft beers. Steamworks Brewers is the lead producer of craft beers in Canada. By 2020, experts predict a 20 percent increase in craft beer sales in Canada.
