You know the scene well. A keg kicks and your heart drops: you've gotta update your beer menu.

What comes next goes something like this: you go to the office computer and head to Google to find the new beer's description. You search and search, finally find a description you like, then copy and paste it into your menu document. You're done...except now the formatting is screwed up. You fiddle with it until it's finally ready. You push print and take a deep breath.

You're done.

Until you have to do the exact same thing the next day.

It doesn't have to be that way! Read on to learn how to create a professional, customized beer menu template that you can update and print with just one click.

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.

How much extra time do you have in your life? 🤔

When we ask bar or restaurant owners this question, the answer is usually something like this:

And while everyone's got a different list, everyone's list is very, very long. As one bar owner recently told us, “there's just not enough time in the day to do everything I need to."

A consistent time suck for every bar and restaurant with a good beer program is updating their beer menu.
