How To Create a Print Beer Menu
Print Menu Setup
If you haven't already, add your business to BeerMenus and add the beers you currently have.
2. From your Update Menu page you will find your Print Menu Profiles (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.
3. Each specific profile features a "Gear" icon to the right of the name.
Clicking this "Gear" icon sends you directly to the back-end settings for that specific menu profile.
From the back-end settings you can make changes to the layout and style of your menu.
Name: This is the name of the Print Profile that will show up on your update menu page. (Drafts/Cans/Cocktails/Wine etc.)
Logo/Header Graphic: 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!
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/Sub-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:
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).
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.
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.
Include Beer Descriptions: This feature allows you to toggle the automatic beer descriptions on and off. This can be a useful feature if you are looking to make a "cheat sheet" for your staff or if you have a massive selection and are looking to cut down on paper use.
Include Brewery Location: Checking this box will display the city and state of where the beer was brewed. People love drinking local! (Did you know that 1/3 people choose their beer based on location?)
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.
At the very bottom of the setting page you will see this "Update" button. Click this and it will save your settings and create your brand new print menu!
Last step: Push the button to the left of the "Gear" icon with your print profile name. This will automatically generate a menu with all your beers and settings that will be all set to print!
You can add a custom banner to your print menu to include any info you like. Email email@example.com for help setting up a custom banner for your business. Learn more.
