28 Mar Goshen Brewing Co. is Officially Brewing its First Batches of Beer
As I walked into Goshen Brewing Co. this past weekend, it smelled and sounded like an actual brewery for the very first time.

Although the brewhouse has been set up for a while, owner/brewer Jesse Sensenig has now brewed the first two batches on his seven-barrel system.
Changing from a half-barrel or one-barrel homebrew system to a commercial seven-barrel system is not necessarily an easy task.
And of course, with so many parts involved, everything might not be hooked up exactly as it should be. For example, an overlooked hose clamp might allow water to spray everywhere until the shutoff valve is quickly turned off.
Great Black Swamp Brewing’s Paul Travers was here over the weekend to help with the inaugural brew. Jesse developed a brewing relationship with Paul and interned with the brewery while living in Ohio.
The first two brews are a Scotch ale and a coffee porter... CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL STORY AT FLAVOR574
