You know the scene well. A keg kicks and your heart drops: you have to 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 beer menu template that automatically includes beer descriptions.

It's finally all happening, and you can exhale.

Until you realize you still need to get your beer menu ready.

Right then—at that precise moment—your heart sinks.

You realize you have to track down descriptions for all your beers yourself. That takes a lot of time. And you don't just have to do it once—you have to do it every single time a keg kicks.

Making your beer menu doesn't have to be a major pain in the butt! Read on to learn how to use BeerMenus to create and update your beer menu in just a few clicks, beer descriptions automatically included.



One tool to design food and drink menus for restaurants

Last updated December 21, 2021 · By Dylan Blake


If you run a bar or restaurant, you’ve had your menu making frustrations.

You spend a bunch of time updating your food menu to include a slate of new menu items. You tinker with design, formatting, and the rest of it, and then, after hours, days, or maybe weeks, you print it off.

You’re finally done updating your menus.

Unless you run a rotational beverage program.

If you do, you’re updating and tinkering every time you kick a keg or get a new wine in. You head to Google, find the beer or wine’s description, then copy and paste it into your menu, where you have to edit or tinker with it. Finally, you print it out, only to do that process all over again the next time a new beer or wine comes in.

It feels like you spend a ton of time updating your menus, which is especially painful because you already don’t have enough time to do the million other things on your to-do list.

It doesn’t have to be that way! Read on to learn how to save time by using BeerMenus to create your food and drink menus in one place.

It's Friday night and your bar's been busy all evening long. So far you've kicked 3 kegs and you know a 4th could blow any second.

It's been a solid sales night, especially for the bar. And you've worked hard, so you really feel like you can hang your hat on the day.

But nestling right up next to your "job well done" satisfaction is another, worse feeling: dread. You're feeling it because you have to update your bar menu tonight.

If you make your bar menu manually with a tool like Microsoft Word, Photoshop, or Adobe Illustrator, that means you've got a lot of work to do:

You have to track down beer information for the 3 (or maybe 4) new beers. That means you run a bunch of Google searches then sift through the results to find good descriptions. When you find it, you copy it and then paste it into your menu document. You fix the formatting that got screwed up, and then, finally, you push print and can go home. Exhale.

But you know that exhale doesn't last long; you've already had to update the bar menu 3 times this week.

Here's the good news—updating your bar menu doesn't have to take that long. Read on to learn how to update your bar menu template—complete with drink descriptions—in just a couple clicks.
