In a recent study, IRI, a beverage industry research firm based in Chicago, dug into beer drinker habits.
The most interesting piece of information: customers are willing to spend about 60% more for craft beer than they are for domestic beer.
The takehome for bars and restaurants is this: the fastest way to increase sales isn’t selling more beer, it's selling more craft beer.
But how can you unlock more craft beer sales?
Craft beers rotate almost every day. Descriptions and beer information (ABV, etc.) are hard to find. Designing and organizing a menu that changes so often takes a ton of time.
Because time is something business owners and managers don’t have a ton of, they often struggle with their beer menu. As a result, their menus:
Put yourself in the shoes of a customer: why would you take a risk and order a craft beer if that’s how it was presented?
Now imagine a different world. Imagine a world where a great beer menu takes just a couple minutes to create and print. Imagine a world where you can update and print your customized beer menu with complete, accurate beer descriptions in just three clicks, meaning you can always provide customers an up-to-date menu.
With menus from BeerMenus, the amount of time customers save in the ordering process is enormous. At a high volume bar like ours, that works out to thousands of dollars on a Friday or Saturday night.

We’ve got 220,000+ beers (with descriptions!) in our beer database, which we’ve been building since 2008. Start typing the name of the beer, select it, and you’ll automatically pull all the information over to your beer menu, including those all-important beer descriptions.
We’ll design your menu as well—choose from a series of popular, professionally designed themes, or work with us to create a totally custom menu.
No funny business with having to input your credit card ahead of time, no expectation of commitment. We’ll even design your menu during your trial. You simply have a full two weeks to decide whether BeerMenus is right for your business and track if your craft beer sales (and check sizes 😃) begin to increase.
After your trial ends, you can keep using your print beer menu by upgrading to BeerMenus Pro for $49 month-to-month (no contract) or less if you structure your membership annually. Regardless, your upgrade comes with a 100% satisfaction guarantee, and our support team is here to help you every step of the way.
And if you decide you don’t want to use our print menus, you can always use our free basic page to list your beers on BeerMenus so that locals can find you.
You can use BeerMenus to create all of your menus:
You can include t-shirts, hats, other merch, and gift cards on your menu, too!
Create a single menu document that includes all your menu items (e.g. a “drink menu” that includes all your drinks), or create separate menu documents for each menu (e.g. a separate beer menu, wine list, cocktail menu, food menu, etc.).
There’s no extra charge for adding other kinds of menu items, and our support team can help you every step of the way.
