How To Create a Print Beer Menu

BeerMenus offers several print menu layouts and designs that automatically organize your beer menu by serving type and beer style and automatically fill in the beer description, ABV, and beer style for each beer you have. Below are details about all of the customizations available with examples of each design.

Print Menu Setup

If you haven't already,  add your business to BeerMenus and add the beers you currently have.

Once logged in, go to My Businesses (at the top right of the screen), click Update Menu.

 Update Menu page you will find your Print Menus (above). 

You can create as many profiles as you wish to suit your needs. For instance, you could create a menu that features all of your wines and cocktails and have another that features just your tap list.

Edit: This is where you make changes to the layout and style of your menu.

Theme: This is where you can choose the from several pre made themes. We offer Clean, Simple, Retro, Bold, Pub and No-Frills options.

Structure: is where you will start making your first changes. Including Paper Size, Columns, Breaks Between Menu Sections, Sort Options and

Paper Size: You have the option here of printing on standard letter sized paper (8.5 x 11 inches), or legal sized paper (8.5 x 14 inches).

Columns: You have the option of choosing how many columns your menu will have.

Breaks Between Menu Sections: You can choose to make your menu sections more distinct, or to save more space.

SORTING OPTIONS: You have the option here of sorting your beers alphabetically by the name of the beer or sorting by the style of the beer. Sorting by style will break the beers into categories based on their style. For instance, a Double IPA would fall under the category "Hoppy," a Pilsner would map to "Crisp and Bright" an Imperial Stout would be classified as "Strong and Boozy." 

This is a great tool to have on your menu as it shows customers exactly what they are getting into before they buy the beer. With all the crazy beer name sorting by style can help get to the core of what the customer is looking for.

Spacing: You have the option to make the spacing in your menu as tight or as spread out as you like.

Content: This is where you edit the content of your menu. Including Menu Items, Header Image, Header, Subheader and Footer Text, and Menu Sections.

Menu Items: You can choose to have descriptions of your menu items, the location where they are made, and their prices.

Header Image: By selecting Choose File you can upload your own Header Image. BeerMenus print menus allow for a full customization of the header section. From here you can upload your own custom image (Height = 200 pixel, width = 2288 pixels), with your own logo, social media handles, address, or any other information you want! 

Custom Banners: Not graphically inclined? No problem! Our team will work directly with you to make one that matches the look and feel that you want. If you would like a print menu consultation or custom banner you can reach out directly to  Support@beermenus.com. You can also browse different print menu examples at the end of this article. 

Header Text: If you choose not to upload a custom banner you can enter text into this box that will show up in the banner section

Menu sections: Here you can drag and drop your menu sections to be in the order that you want them on your menu. The settings show all of your menu and custom menu sections so that you can check the box to include or not include them on your menu. Let's say you wanted to create a "Bottles" only menu. You would check only the bottles category for this profile so that it only pulls that portion of your menu.

Customize: This is where you can do more customizations. Including changing Fonts, adding Colors, and CSS Customizations.

Fonts: You can switch between the 35 fonts we have for each different section and section header on the menu. You can also change the font size of each section to help draw attention or to get that menu to fit onto as many pages as you like. At the top you can view a "Preview" sheet to see what each font looks like.

CSS Customizations: This is where you can make more in depth customizations and include Colors with your knowledge of html. via the Additive CSS. We at Beer Menus are more than happy to schedule a call with you to discuss your vision for your menu and to implement it on your behalf. support@beermenus.com

Beer Menus Print Menu Design & Settings automatically saves your changes. Once you are finished implementing the vision of your menu there is nothing left to do but Print!
