All the costs and expenses in a brewery or food craft business have value. These expenses and costs ultimately contribute to your revenue and without them your revenue may not be what it is now. This is why it is so important to view costs as strategic rather than things to reduce. The trap you can find yourself in when you go the route of cutting costs, rather than being strategic, is that your quality can suffer enough to run your customers away. Clearly that is bad for any brewery or food crafter.
