If there’s one thing constantly on every brewery owner’s mind, it’s profit. Craft and community go hand-in-hand, but community can’t survive without cash. And in this episode of The True Craft Podcast, we discuss profit in the brewery.
Brandon and Chris start off by comparing profit margins in taproom and distribution models, navigating price increases, and Brandon’s philosophy on utilizing debt.
Then we bring in our guests for this episode, Blake Thompson and Derek Fernholz from Fernson Brewing Company in Sioux Falls, South Dakota
They give us insight on their sales split and profit in the early days of production, storage issues due to the increase in canning and distribution, and the status of Fernson’s recent expansion.
