Enhanced Brewery Experience

Transform your customers' experience with GoTab's user-friendly and efficient Brewery POS System. Our system revolutionizes every facet of their visit, from the convenience of mobile ordering to the smoothness of payment transactions. GoTab is dedicated to not only elevating the level of hospitality but also significantly boosting your brewery's profitability and customer satisfaction

Brewery-Centric Approach

GoTab’s Brewer’s Guild and Brewer’s Association membership philosophy is rooted in the belief that collaboration and community support are vital for the success of craft breweries. Membership provides breweries with critical benefits such as access to industry trends, legislative advocacy, and a network of fellow brewers for knowledge sharing. GoTab enhances these benefits with its Brewery POS system, offering features like contactless ordering, seamless payment processing, and real-time data analytics, helping breweries improve operational efficiency and customer satisfaction. This combination of community support and advanced technology empowers breweries to thrive in a competitive market.

Streamlined Taproom Operations

Our easy-to-use platform is made to make managing your brewery smoother. Enjoy simple order taking, seamless payment processing, and better team management. GoTab works on cutting down wait times, making fewer mistakes, and improving operational efficiency.

Tailored Loyalty Programs

Make your brewery stand out by knowing what your guests like, how they spend money, and how often they come back. Our loyalty programs collect important information and let you make special offers for each customer. This creates a fun and personal experience that makes guests want to come back to your brewery again and again

Complete Hardware Flexibility

GoTab provides a wide selection of top-quality POS hardware specially made for your brewery. We understand that you might already have some equipment, so our system is built to easily work with what you already have. GoTab's POS system is flexible, giving you lots of choices. You can pick our high-tech devices or upgrade your current setup. Either way, GoTab makes sure you get a solution that fits your brewery's special needs perfectly.

No Lock-in Contracts

With no lock-in contracts and compatibility with virtually any Internet-enabled hardware, our platform is designed to enhance guest experiences and streamline operations, all while boosting your bottom line. Our contracts are  month-to-month so we have to win your business again and again. You can run our system on a tablet, a Windows pc, an Android or IOS device, it’s up to you; nothing proprietary needed. When it comes to your payment processing, we recognize that there’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all solution, so our goal is to find the solution that best suits your business. 

Inventory Management

Knowing actual inventory depletion by the taproom in the brewery is super helpful in understanding both market demand and building the brew schedule. Did you know you are overpaying your excise taxes if you do a significant taproom volume? Excise taxes should be paid on volume sold from the POS, not the volume transferred to the taproom. A small 1,000 annual barrel taproom would save $5,000 per year.

"Your tech support is ridiculously amazing! Being able to contact tech support from my expo kiosk is a game changer."

Steve Tressler, Assistant General Manager at FlyteCo Tower Brewing

Responsive Kitchen Operations

Exceptional guest experiences hinge on swift and efficient service. GoTab understands this and collaborates closely with brewery operators to seamlessly integrate front-of-house and back-of-house operations using our advanced Kitchen Display System (KDS). The GoTab KDS is equipped with innovative features such as intelligent preparation timers, efficient order batching, and detailed plating guides, ensuring that every order receives meticulous attention.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do brewery mobile tabs work the same as other venue types?

Yes, brewery mobile tabs work the same in GoTab as our mobile tabs for other venue types. Guest can open a digital tab at your brewery by simply scanning a GoTab QR or tapping a GoTab NFC. They can associate their debit or credit card with their tab to place orders in your tap-room, on your patio, at an on-property food truck or anywhere else you would like to provide food and beverage service. Guests then close their tab directly through GoTab and can simply walk out without having to stand in line or flag down a server. They never need to download an app and all of their orders and payments are tracked for future retrieval within GoTab. Guests who prefer to start their order with a server can use EasyTab. This unique feature allows your server to dip or swipe a credit or debit card

What is a brewery digital tab?

A brewery digital tab is an open check that guests can use to place orders for food and beer at a brewery. With systems like GoTab, guests can also place reorders against the existing check. This has the benefit of making it easy for guests to get what they want when they want it. From a brewery perspective, reorders against an existing digital tab or check has the added benefit of reduced transaction fees because the guest is able to keep the tab open until all orders are placed.

Is GoTab a brewery mobile payment app?

Yes. However, GoTab does not require an app download on the guests’ phone. Because GoTab is a cloud-based platform, guests can access all the benefits of using GoTab through their web browser.

How does GoTab compare to the typical brewery POS software?

Originally crafted to boost brewery efficiency, GoTab today serves a wide range of hospitality businesses. Its origins in the brewery industry mean it comes loaded with features tailor-made for brewery operators. Pioneering in contactless/QR ordering and payment since 2018, GoTab was ahead of its time compared to other brewery ordering software. Our platform was engineered from scratch with contactless ordering in mind, ensuring a smooth, integrated experience. With GoTab, guests can open a tab on their mobile device and it's instantly accessible through the GoTab all-in-one POS, allowing both guests and servers to add orders to the same tab. This flexibility lets guests choose how they want to order – directly through their device without queuing, or traditionally through a server. And they're free to switch between these methods as they prefer. Additional features like order zones for extended outdoor service, batch ordering for efficient kitchen management, and multi-vendor integration for third-party orders, position GoTab as an ideal solution for breweries aiming to boost revenue, cut costs, and elevate the guest experience
