Food & Drink
BeerMenus is a SaaS business that connects people who want to find craft beer with businesses that sell craft beer (bars, restaurants, liquor stores, breweries, etc.). Businesses list the beers they have available on their BeerMenus page so locals can find places selling the beers they're looking for. Our target business audience is beer retailers (bars, restaurants, liquor stores, breweries, etc.). We offer beer retailers a number of tools to grow their craft beer program, including printable beer menus. We generate PDF menus of businesses' beer selections that automatically include beer info (ABV, beer description, brewery name and location, etc.) and offer a variety of ways to format and present the menu. From there, businesses can simply push “print” to generate their print menu.
What's your vision?
We're looking for new printed beer menu templates/themes. We want all designs to be easy to read/scan, but we'd like a wide breadth of design styles, from conservative/classic to highly stylized/eccentric. As long as it's easy to read/scan, we're open to it. The print menu design should include: • Header (business name, logo) could also include info about a special / happy hour, social media handles • Menu section headers. It's helpful to think of the sections as coming at two different levels: 1. Businesses list “On Tap,” and “Bottles,” “Cans,” “Wines,” “Cocktails,” etc. (businesses can also create custom menu sections). 2. Within those sections, businesses often choose to group their beers by beer flavor/style (Hoppy, Crisp and Bright, etc.). These section and sub-section headers are important. • Within each section is a list of beers. Each beer listing includes beer name, style, ABV, location of Brewery, beer description, and serving type/size/price. Some beers are offered in multiple serving types/sizes. Most businesses choose to include all beer info, but some elect to not include the beer description or brewery location. • Footer (includes when the menu was updated and can include info about a special / happy hour, social media handles, etc.) A few things to keep in mind: • Menus can be 1, 2, or 3 columns layouts • Designs should assume dimensions of 8.5 x 11
• Please use the beer information included in the example menus to fill out your menu designs. • Because many of the businesses we work with have a ton of beers, maximizing the number of beers that can fit per page is often important.
