Listen, as much great beer as there is in this world, there is plenty of room for more. Which is why we believe every minute not spent on administrative B.S. is a minute that can be spent brewing awesome beer!
Sure there are other brewery management systems already created. Some on old antiquated software platforms. Some dump data onto the screen in hopes that it makes sense. Up until BREWD no one has really set out to create software that makes the breweries' lives easier.
As a matter of fact, our software was crafted by sitting down for the better part of a year and talking to breweries of all sizes. Listening to the trials and tribulations of real craft brewery owners and head brewers. We brewed beer, just like you do every day or every week. We listened to sales managers and sales reps. We went on delivery routes with drivers and talked to bar and restaurant owners.
We lived your life, albeit for just a few moments, to give our team a better understanding of the issues you face every day. So you have our promise to keep building a better product. You have our promise to optimize every tap of the phone and click of the mouse. You have our promise to listen and improve. Always improve. We both share a passion to put out the best product possible. And when we it enables you focus on the thing that makes you successful...brewing great beer.
