Goshen Brewery

Jesse Sensenig, owner of Goshen Brewing Company, a family-friendly, farm-to-table brewpub in downtown Goshen. Owning a business like this means the activities in their days are varied, but range from getting to know customers and working alongside an amazing staff, to creating recipes and brewing the beer, to putting on events like concerts and movies on the lawn. A Goshen College education shaped the Sensenigs’ business in many ways. Jesse earned a social work degree and Amanda earned a psychology degree. They went on SST to the Dominican Republic and learned firsthand about caring for and learning from people who were different from them. At GC, they made lifelong friendships with people from around the world. “All of those experiences have shaped the values of Goshen Brewing Company, which boasts many GC alumni as staff,” they said. “In particular, we focus on relationships in every aspect of our business, and strive for a feeling of acceptance and belonging, both for staff and customers.” The Sensenigs believe in the importance of community, and integrate the values of service and stewardship instilled in them from their years at Goshen College. “We collaborate with other local businesses and practice sustainability in our food sourcing, using both local and organic products whenever possible. GBCo. donates a portion of the proceeds from our Menno-Mighty IPA t-shirts to local organizations, such as LaCasa, Inc. and the Elkhart County Clubhouse. We support local artists, using and selling their merchandise at the brewery. The emphasis Goshen College places on music has affected us as well. We’ve featured musicians playing a wide variety of styles of music on our patio and in several events on a larger stage on the lawn. We’re grateful for the impact Goshen College has had in shaping our worldview and we carry those experiences with us into our business.”
