Barrel ERP: A Single Solution to Manage End-to-End Brewery Operations

Gain real-time visibility across your brewery, automate manual processes, and link information flow throughout departments with Barrel ERP—an end-to-end NetSuite application designed specifically for the business needs of breweries.

Barrel ERP can help drive down costs, enhance productivity, and save time and resources by implementing a single source-of-truth platform that collects and organizes your brewery’s data into one system.

Barrel ERP can seamlessly connect front-of-house retail and back-of-house production operations—as well as your accounting functions—to consolidate and cross-report key business data and systems. Transform your operations with Barrel ERP so you can stay focused on what matter most: brewing and selling great beer.

Comprehensive Visibility Across Your Organization

Too often breweries hamper productivity and strategic decision-making due to separate software solutions managing various departments.

Enhancing visibility into all areas of your company, Barrel ERP can help provide insights into what to brew, the cost to brew each stock keeping unit (SKU), where to sell products, and new growth opportunities.

Key department and focus areas can include:

  • Sales and marketing. Measure sales across distribution channels, understand customer demographics, identify repeat sales, and more.
  • Accounting. Collect and manage information for production and sales on which you pay taxes to enhance and automate tax reporting to the IRS.
  • Production. Measure tank input and output and quality readings.
  • Inventory. Manage warehouses, assess month-close stock, and more.
  • Warehouse. Identify what’s being produced, assess production equality management, measure product quality and standards, and more.
  • Supply chain. Avoid holding extra ingredients or shortages of required ingredients.
  • Fulfillment. Determine if orders processed correctly.
