Draft beer inventory control company

The hospitality business has always been beleaguered by draft beer losses – loss resulting from spillage, bad pours, staff ‘helping themselves’ and ‘freebies’ to a friend or to increase tips. All of which eats into your bar profit. Estimates have put the number loss as high as 25% – a startling one in every four kegs poured! Despite this, draft beer sales are still one of the most profitable categories on-premise (draft beer can regularly yield over 75% profit), and draft beer is a key ingredient of any bar or restaurant operation. So the challenge is to find keg beer equipment that will let you find out how much beer is in a keg – i.e. a beer measure or keg meter / keg scale that is both easy to use & practical for a busy bar operation.

Keg Check focuses in on this issue, and offers restaurant & bar operators with an ideal tool to implement a beer control program and increase your bar profit. The Keg Check can literally pay for itself in weeks – even days in some cases – And it will last for years.

With so many solutions out there to check draft beer – keg meters, keg scales, flow-control products, digital scales & so on – how do you pick the right one? The simple answer is ‘keep it simple’ – Do you really want the hassle of calling tech support people when your draft beer measuring system is acting up or just stops working?

The Keg Check is a simple keg scale – and as such will be one of your most valued pieces of draft beer equipment. It clips on the edge of a keg, you use it to tilt the keg & a scale on the handle tells you how many gallons are in the keg. Keg weighing doesn’t get any easier than this.


Measure your draft beer with a Keg check hand-held measuring scale

There are many draft beer flow-control & pour-control systems on the market – all expensive, taking a long time to recover your investment (and hence boost your bar profit), and often plagued with problems because they are complex systems. And they often still miss one vital ingredient – how much beer is actually in the keg! So your POS system says you’ve sold 50 pints, your draft keg flow control system says you’re pulled 52 pints. But where is the check on these numbers? – the reality is that you still need to know what’s in the keg. If not, it’s like using your ATM card without any idea what balance is in your bank account!

The Keg Check removes all doubt. Taking only seconds per keg, usually with no need to remove the pipes, you can get an accurate measure of the draft beer content (+/- approx. 2 pints). This simplicity & speed of use is vital in the busy bar & restaurant trade. In a business with so many ‘moving parts’ – staff, inventory, customers, suppliers, licensing, inspectors, maintenance, landlords, computer systems, payroll, banking etc. – much of which changes in real time – the last thing the manager needs is a tech-headache from some great new ‘beer measuring system‘. Do you really want to be stuck on a tech support line to a draft-beer flow-control company during Happy Hour? Do you want the staff to know that the new beer-measuring system is “off line” for the weekend, so there’ll be no restriction on giveaways? No? – Then get a Keg Check!

One thing that will certainly make the bartenders pay attention is seeing the owner or manager doing ‘random’ keg weighs on the draft beer. They know you can easily weigh or measure the liquor, count the beer bottles and wine bottles. But the draft beer is the vague area with no simple control – until now!

So get control of your keg beer and reclaim your draft beer profits – get a Keg Check today!

But more important than this, a draft beer inventory checking scale will let the staff know that they can’t give your beeraway for free! This is the crucial element to good beer inventory control. Typically the bartenders take for granted that they can’t give away too much liquor – it’s measured or weighed regularly & the shortage will quickly be spotted.

The Keg Check keg scale allows you to check your draft beer levels – accurate to within a couple of pints – at any time, taking only seconds per keg.

This level of visibility will put your draft beer profit back where it belongs – in your pocket!

Keep control of your draft beer inventory

by Kegcheck USA 05 Feb 2013 in KegCheck Articles Comments: 0

Only you can determine what will be the best practice for checking your beer and liquor inventories. And you need the right tools to do the job. Keg Check is just that – a simple to use, reliable, sturdy keg scale that will last for years & pay for itself over & over – the ultimate beer measure.

We’ve had feedback saying that some bar owners put the responsibility for beer inventory control on the bartenders themselves – they have to use the Keg Check to weigh the beer, fill in the inventory for each draft (in addition to bottled beer count, wine & liquor) and have this ready at the start of every shift. This takes the pressure off you – the manager or owner – and you only need perform random ‘audits’ to check their figures. This is what good beer control is all about.

This system is sometimes combined with giving the bartenders a ‘budget’ of free beer – for example 4 pints per shift – which they can use how they please – and if they don’t use it they get to keep the cash equivalent of your cost on the 4 pints! The bottom line is you have to get creative with draft beer inventory control & keep more of your bar profits.

And it all starts with a Keg Check – keg beer equipment at its best. Boost your bar profit & buy one today!
