Intelligence, Insights and Trends around the beer industry (September 2016)
SYRACUSE, NY (August 31, 2016) — BeerBoard has introduced its first BeerBoard Pour Report (September 2016). The report is based upon the incredible amounts of pour data gathered from the company’s client base and gives great insight to the style and brand trends within the beer industry.
For this report, the company selected 400 of its client locations, using a sample-set of same-store volume ACTUALLY POURED, comparing the first six months of 2015 to the same period in 2016. This barometer gave a clear snapshot of strong performers and styles trending up or down.
“The time was right for this first release of our insights, given the rich data set BeerBoard has established based on the number of clients and the 50,000-plus draft lines we monitor,” said Mark Young, Founder and CEO of BeerBoard. “We will continue to evolve and refine this report and build out a sample set representative of the entire on-premise market. One thing is clear from this report: America loves its beer and it is being poured in incredible volume.”
BeerBoard monitors over 50,000 draft lines and 35,000 products through its Integrated Beer Management and Guest Display System. Installed at thousands of client locations, its services include SmartBar, which generates pour data and trend-driven analytics, BeerBoard Display, a digital consumer-facing menu display, BeerBoard Menu, automated print and website menus, and a consumer mobile application.
