Digital beer menus are attention-grabbing, easy to read, easy to update, and always display your accurate drink menu. This makes the ordering process more efficient, leading to a significant increase in beverage sales.
Of course, that sounds fantastic.
But it's never so simple, is it? Anytime you alter your menu process, you create a ripple effect: it affects your customers, it affects your staff, and, perhaps most of all, it affects you because you have to deal with the change from all angles.
Here's the good news: switching to a digital beer menu can be simple.
With BeerMenus TV menus, we make the transition simple by taking care of menu design and walking you through setup. Once your digital beer menu is up and running, you can update and maintain it from anywhere, including your phone.
You can completely customize the look and feel of your digital beer menu with textures, patterns, fonts, logos, and branding. Designs range from rustic to modern and can include logos, specials, social media call-outs, watermarks, events, and more. Basically, if you want to include it, you can.
Here are a few examples:
Creating your TV Menu takes just a few minutes.
First, create a page for your business on BeerMenus:
After that, just add the beers you have, work on your menu design (more on that below), and get your hardware sorted out.
"What hardware?" you're wondering—we'll talk about that next.
Aside from a TV or projector, there are two pieces of equipment you need:
An Intel PC stick (~$100), which is about the size of a pack of gum and plugs into the HDMI port in any TV or projector. This is a mini computer that connects your TV or projector to the internet, allowing your digital beer menu to auto-refresh.
You can easily update your menu from anywhere: your phone, tablet, or computer.
You can also give your staff menu updating access, which will allow them to update the TV displays on their own phones without having to find you or a manager.
As soon as you update your menu, the change will automatically reflect on your TV menu.
Posting specials & promoting events
You can use your TV Menu to post full screen images to promote upcoming events, special offerings, or anything else you'd like.
It's easy to reformat the graphics for any event posters you make for your TV Menu. You can upload this graphic from any device to instantly update on your TV.
Here's a "how-to" video on creating and using image specials on your TV Menu:

Can I include other beverage types (not just beer)?
Yes! You can add all your beverages (and also food, merch, gift cards, etc.). Read more about how to add those to your menu by checking out this help doc.
