📣 Shout out to Los Molinos Beer in San Clemente, CA. They're a community-focused microbrewery that arrived in beautiful San Clemente just over a year ago. Cool can art, cool vibe, tasty beer. If you're in the area or just passing by, stop in for some LOMO (their words). Follow Los Molinos on Instagram and Facebook.
Nick Wendowski and his wife own Stone's Beer & Beverage in Philly. PA liquor laws are weird (more on that below), and Nick's license allows him to serve 3 rungs in the booze ladder:
Given this, it was interesting to talk with him about the trends he's noticed over the last 6 months or so. (We also touched on some crazy PA liquor limitations). Here are takeaways from the conversation:

Because if it’s not listed on the menu, customers won’t know to order it, and it won’t sell.
Even if your servers are ready to answer the question (which, honestly, often isn't the case), many customers just don’t want to have to ask. Instead, they’ll just order something else that they know is available, or maybe nothing at all.
For starters, anything is better than nothing here. If all you can muster is just a half sheet of paper with your rotating beers listed on it, that's still much better than "ask your server."
If you'd like to up the design a bit, you could of course do something manual—create an editable menu template in Google Docs, Microsoft Word, or Excel. And once you have your template designed, just edit it whenever you get a new beer in and print it out.
👉 Or you could use BeerMenus to automate your Print Menu. With BeerMenus you can update your professionally designed menu with full beer information in just 10-15 seconds, no Googling or graphic design required. Take BeerMenus for a free 14-day spin to try it out—we're confident you'll see beer sales improve:
