We have grown our business in leaps and bound since launching the brewpub two and a half years ago. Back then we only had an annual production of 45,000 litres a year. Since opening the production facility in Dec 2018 and increasing production several times over we realised very quickly that we needed a system to help and support us. We could no longer run inventory in our heads, keep up with distribution plus meet all the quality aspects of brewing consistently.
We looked around a lot, and finally we were introduced to Beer30. From the moment we saw it and had a look through, we loved the system.
Its brewery side features are brilliant, intuitive and comprehensive.
The brewing page is clean, easy and pushes us for all the brew specifications we defined which means more testing, more critical specifications met and more consistency in our product.
What really blew us away was the speed of implementation. 24 hours from decision to go with Beer30 and we had loaded our inventory, stock, what was in our tanks and set up for packaging. Then 36 hours after decision, we were brewing with the support of Beer30.
We are very excited about the upcoming distribution releases which will see broadened functionality and streamlining to take a bit more of the load off our team. It’s a great system, with great support and an exciting future, we are very glad we are onboard!"
We switched to Beer30 from Ekos about two years ago and it has been a smooth process since the day we signed on. The onboarding process was user friendly, easily navigable, and the Beer30 team was always there with a quick response to any questions or concerns.
Beer30 offers a customizability for every aspect of the brewing process making it a program built, not only for brewing in general, but for your brewery specifically. Parts of brewing, like inventory (of anything and everything), purchase orders, recipe creation, distribution invoicing, barrel inventory and actions, reports, batch comparisons and repeatability, and even production planning
became so easily operational and streamlined into one program that is simple enough for every member of the brewery and management team to be able to tell what is happening on all fronts.
The intricate details of the program allow us to have a trail of every data point, tasting note, and quality assurance test throughout each batch's life and it feels like we continue to find more and more ways to utilize the program to make our day to day more streamlined.
Finally, to top it all off, I can't express how important customer service is and they have the best. Questions are answered within minutes with step by step instructions on how to fix or find something and they take every customer complaint/request and actually act on it, which means constant improvements to the program.
OOZLEFINCH BEERS & BLENDING
Switching from Ekos to Beer30 has been a no-brainer for us.
The ability to see a development roadmap and get really active support has been a game changer. The team at Beer30 has been incredibly responsive to our needs and it feels like we're partners, not just a customer. It's a better system for doing things brewers need to do and it's nice to know that we can get excellent support. The guys at Beer30 don't just help us fix a problem or send us to online support articles, they actively work with us to discuss workflows and help identify how to use Beer30 to reach our goals.
Very cool stuff. Finally, a brewing software that we're excited about!
SILVER BRANCH BREWING
It was clear from our first demo of Beer30 that this software is different. We were ready to make a change from Orchestrated Beer and the brewing knowledge and customer service focus of the Beer30 team was a huge selling point for us.
With their support we were up and running VERY quickly and the integration with QBO was smooth.
Because Beer30 is built around the brewing process, our brewers have embraced the software – this was not the case with Orchestrated Beer.
We finally have real-time information-rich brewing data available in one place (and that place is not a clipboard). We are excited about continued process improvements and data analysis as we partner with Beer30 moving forward!
KONA BREWING HAWAII
Sailors Grave had been on the hunt for an inventory management system for our business and kept coming up against options that involved multiple barriers and complicated retrofitting to make them work with a brewery. Luckily we were recommended to Beer30 at this time by another brewery!
Beer30 offered not only an inventory management system designed specifically for breweries, but also integrated the whole process from ingredient procurement, through brewing and on to distribution. It even handles our Australian alcohol tax calculations.
Onboarding and integration were easy and we were guided through the process expertly.
I have to say that we suddenly feel a whole lot more professional now that we use Beer30. Time savings are excellent - data entry and metrics retrieval are a breeze.
We have transparency across all areas of the business and COGS data is a life changer for profitability and cash flow.
All the variables of different customers and distribution channels are integrated and make sales very clear and traceable. Also, integration with our existing bookkeeping software (Xero) was a big plus.
Pulkit and the team at Beer30 have gone above and beyond to help us integrate the system into our business.
Day or night we have been able to get any help we needed and the team has shown amazing flexibility in integrating any suggestions we might have.
We wholeheartedly recommend Beer30 to any brewery wanting to streamline and grow their business.
SAILORS GRAVE BREWING
“Pelican Brewing is fortunate to be growing rapidly. This growth has stressed systems that historically provided visibility of liquid staging & migration. A recent ERP/MRP change had us in a spiral with too much time being spent on data entry & too little time on optimizing daily management of brewhouse/cellar/Lab/Packaging tasks.
Believe it or not …you can drop your email into a box on the internet and end up with a great software solution.
The guys at Beer30 told us that integration would be quick & easy, and it actually was. We’ve moved almost all Brewhouse planning & management into Beer 30. It allows comprehensive management in just a few minutes.
All tank monitoring, QA/QC, transfers, yeast management & batch tracking are unbelievably quick & easy. Also, B30 has an unbelievably cool charting tool, that allows quick access to trending across styles, brands and a myriad of other brewhouse data points. It’s easy and intuitive, and makes decision points clear & simple.
We still handle inventory, invoicing, and accounting function through an MRP/ERP. We completely decouple batches from the MRP, track essential data through Beer30, then send finished goods back to the MRP. It’s easy to do, with far fewer keystrokes.
Best of all we didn’t have to spend time developing custom software. And we didn’t have to adapt a hybrid automation/MRP that was never really designed for our operations. The Beer30 team are brewery people, not accountants or automators. So they built a platform from the viewpoint of brewery people. And it works great.”
- Martin G. Bills, Director of Brewing Operations
“Having just recently gone through a long ERP system change that took months, the implementation time for Beer30 was night and day.
New database was up within hours and had most information (recipes, ingredients, data trackers) entered in a couple days.
At the size we are currently and still growing this was a massive help for adjusting to another new system.
While we are committed to using the new ERP for inventory and accounting functions, we have found a balance between the two systems. The ERP is used for quantitative data while Beer30 is used for qualitative data and this is the info we need to make decisions every day. Beer30 serves as our QC and batch tracking database.
The mantra of 3 clicks is a real thing. From brewing to the dashboard to whatever info I’m looking for is available within 3 clicks. Tracking tanks is super easy with day counters on the dashboard and tank action automation built into the recipes. This provides a baseline if your batches are progressing on the timeline you expect. The charting functions throughout the system help provide quick reviews and in-depth analysis of brands batch to batch. Yeast tracking is a breeze with visibility on where your generations came from. Tank tags keep the entire staff in the loop on what each tank is doing. Working with the Beer30 dev team, we were able to build a diacetyl testing module for which data can be tracked by batch and user. This helps the QA department in their goals of passing quality checks and will help build sensory panel data about participants thresholds to certain compounds.
Overall, Beer30 has been a great tool to bring on and has brought a lot of light to daily processes that either lived in notebooks and binders or were muddled in an ERP database that wasn’t really designed for qualitative data. The system is intuitive, user friendly, and easy to train staff to use.
Pulkit and Ryan have been great to work with since day one and are very responsive to technical issues, troubleshooting, and new process ideation. As we continue to grow and find new challenges, I know Beer30 will be ready to take them on and we’re going to accomplish a lot of epic stuff together.”
- Jason Schlebach, Brewery Manager
As soon as I discovered the capabilities of Beer30 to help us manage process flow and data sharing within our brewery
it was a no brainer to switch over from Orchestrated Beer
. After only a few short weeks we began to see the
cost savings in time and materials from this cloud based solution.
The process insights have empowered our entire team to be plugged in to real time data and make efficiency driven decisions to grow our business and profitability. Most importantly the support from onboarding and integration as well as development has been off the charts!"
MARKET GARDEN BREWERY
The switch from Orchestrated Beer to Beer30 has made our lives so much easier. Implementation and onboarding were quick and easy, and QBO integration was a breeze.
Entering invoices and PO's is wicked easy, and fixing any errors is usually just a click or two.
Pulkit and his team had a clear plan laid out for the transition. Each phase included training and follow up support. Questions were addressed immediately, and answered in a clear and concise manner without long wait times.
PKA, John, Andrew and the rest of the team are so easy to work with. Someone is always available to respond to any questions we may have. If they don't have an immediate answer, they will look into it and get back as soon as they do.
They provide screenshots, detailed responses, and are always willing to jump on a Zoom call if necessary. They are open to suggestions and have listened to our requests, creating several reports to make our lives easier in regards to our Barrel Aging program.
Another huge bonus -
Beer30 has allowed our Head Brewers and Production Staff to take over entering their own brew logs and packaging information, which was never even a consideration with Orchestrated Beer. We’d definitely recommend making the switch!
CENTRAL WATERS BREWING CO.
Beer30 has been integral in getting all of our brewery data into one location that we are able to reference quickly. From raw materials and the brewing process, through finished goods and packaging,
Beer30 provides the real-time information that is needed to make decisions and keep the beer flowing!
SMOG CITY BREWING
After trying to implement other brewery management programs multiple times unsuccessfully over the last 5 years we thought we were doomed to live a life of mediocre spreadsheets.
Other programs we tried lacked intuitive programming and we’d have brewers struggling to do even simple tasks because of glitches or programming errors that could not be easily fixed.
Luckily after seeing a few other brewers mention Beer30 online we set up a time to check it out with Pulkit and we haven’t turned back.
Implementation was simple… We did an hour or two training session with Pulkit and our management team then sat down our brewers for a lunch & learn and by the end of it our people felt proficient enough to hit the ground running. Initially we purchased iPads to help our crew keep information easily accessible but within a week most of them preferred to use their phone due to the simple user interface.
Compare this to when we were using other programs and users only ever felt comfortable on a desktop and as you can imagine accuracy in tracking and our data is much better when recorded in the moment as opposed to at the end of a shift or a day later.
In the past we’d also have to wrestle data and information from emails to spreadsheets to “other programs” and then finally into QuickBooks.
The integration directly from Beer30 into QuickBooks not only saves us time but helps eliminate “fat finger” human errors that have plagued us in the past.
Having more data is always better than less and Beer30 is helping us collect relevant data points in a way that we were NEVER going to be able to accomplish using spreadsheets or even paper logs.
Pulkit and Ryan’s customer service has been excellent. I know at the beginning our operations manager was in regular communication with them to make sure that everything we were setting up was accurate and that we would be able to succeed. Good luck getting a response from some of the other companies out there… We’re glad we made the switch and look forward to continuing our relationship with the Beer30 team!"
THE BREWING PROJEKT
With our previous management software, mathematical errors were just something we needed to get used to. Poor customer support and slow response times became the norm. Terrible design and inaccuracies were all I could take.
We needed a change and knew there had to be a better solution than BeerRun Software. Enter Pulkit and his amazing team!
From the first time we spoke on the phone to the moment we started the onboarding process, I felt supported and confident in Beer30. Aside from the software being intuitive and well designed, the customer support has been top notch.
Beer30 is designed and operated by people who understand brewery process and workflow- this alone was a good reason to implement Beer30.
It took about a week to fully onboard and the implementation felt easy and relatively stress free. The transition was the most welcoming thing of it all. Once we were fully integrated and BeerRun was no longer on my taskbar, I felt as if a cloud of inaccuracies and stress exited my brain.
The entire Exhibit ‘A’ Brewing staff have all gotten to really love Beer30 and what it offers us as an organization. The COGS calculations, the charts, the MRP and the scheduler are all easy to navigate and have been the most useful. The data collection and data transparency are the best I have come across when researching other systems and
the fact that Beer30 looks and works so well on mobile devices is a huge plus
After reading this, all the things that we love about Beer30 are obvious, but the customer support has been what makes me proud to be a partner and even more proud to say,
I’d like to sit down and have a beer with our friends at The 5th Ingredient. Let’s say we meet at Beer30!
EXHIBIT ‘A’ BREWING
Implementation & onboarding was a dream. We were set up and running within hours.
Prior to using Beer30 we had gone through the onboarding process with Orchestrated Beer and that took weeks. I was amazed at how easy Beer30 made it.
Having all the data in one place made everything easier - from raw materials to finished goods things are just faster and more efficient.
We've been using Beer30 for a little over a year now and it's amazing being able to pull data from last year's seasonals in seconds.
No more sifting through separate spreadsheets, brew logs & accounting software.
Having the live brew log available is a godsend.
We have two locations and I can watch the brewlogs of both from my desk. Mobile implementation is great - all staff use beer30 on their phones & once they go through a brief training they're good to go.
Being able to drill down on costs is HUGE - especially with how much prices have increased in the last few years.
We've managed to shave unnecessary costs from all of our beers using data from Beer30.
Prior to B30 our inventory was kept on a shared google doc. It always ended up inaccurate and was a pain to manage. The integration and flow from raw materials to sales in Beer30 has really streamlined our business & reduced headaches for production & sales staff.
Service is always great. Questions are answered quickly & a bunch of feature requests have been added to the base software since we started using it!
THIN MAN BREWERY
NEW YORK, USA
The best brewery software I've used. Designed to be used in real time, it has eliminated paper brew sheets. It enables us to track trends or look up old specs with a couple of keystrokes.
Their customer support is unparalleled. Best part is they are constantly improving the interface via feedback; it just keeps getting better.
Lisa Barclay, Head Brewer
Beer30 has made us a better brewery.
A real-time software program that lets you work in real-time. A great dashboard, strong inventory management, all the reports your heart desires, and by far the best customer service I have ever experienced. I don't think these folks sleep.
Matt Willerton, General Manager
Onboarding was quick and easy and the dashboard is extremely user-friendly. Daily operations are well organized to ensure everyone is on the same page. No need for a whiteboard anymore! Quick and easy access (using a laptop, tablet or phone!) to the batch history (the brew log, the packaging runs, materials cost, sales, etc.) and inventory tracking (raw materials, packaging materials, packaged goods etc.) which allows us to make more timely decisions and schedule tasks. The customer service is also stellar. They are always quick to answer questions and improve the application in ways that fit our specific needs.
Since using Beer30 we have increased our packaging volume, decreased our costs and improved the quality of the beer we make. Overall, we have become a more efficient brewery. Thanks Beer30!
After many frustrations with our existing brewery management software, we began researching alternatives.
We visited the Beer30 booth at CBC in Denver in 2021, and after talking with the Beer30 team and looking at what the software could do for us, we knew it was a no-brainer to switch over from Ekos.
The software offers access to real-time brewing, packaging, fermentation, inventory and sales data, accurate COGS, powerful reporting and charting. The ability to graph and compare fermentations of a specific brand without the extra spreadsheet data entry step is not only a time saver, but has
helped us dial in our processes and ensure we’re producing a consistent product.
One of the biggest benefits of Beer30 has been their support team.
It seems like we’re never more than a few minutes away from a response to any query, quite unlike the 24+ hour response time from Ekos.
They are also open to feature suggestions and improvements, and are constantly improving the software with updates.
I highly recommend Beer30 to anyone looking for an all-encompassing brewery management software.
they are easy to use for recipe iteration, process management and inventory/cost tracking and the developers don't hassle you or constantly try to upsell you on stuff.
Onboarding was extremely fast and easy and my staff use it without complaint or input from me, easy peasy.
The Moorebeer Team researched numerous software solutions in an attempt to identify ways of reducing the large amount of manual paperwork being used in our brewery as well as ways to streamline our overall end to end operational recording, monitoring and communications process.
Key considerations for Moorebeer were ease of onboarding, ease of navigating and rolling out the software, reducing our manual recording, the ability for all staff to log in and access information remotely, and being able to add additional modules as the business grew, hence reducing the initial upfront investment required…in this regard
Beer30 ticked all the boxes and then some.
Pulkit arranged everything from setting up Zoom meetings, walking our Team through each module online, setting up a demo account so the Team could evaluate the software before committing to purchase, allowing us to ensure it was the right solution for us.
All enquires were answered promptly, and the ongoing support from Pulkit and his a team has exceeded our expectations.
The Moorebeer Team has found Beer30 extremely easy and seamless to implement and use.
All team members have live access to process information in real time via email alerts to their mobile phones and iPads, which allows team members in different parts of the operation to swing into action immediately.
A couple of examples are…Once a beer has been transferred from the fermentation tank to the brite tank, the cleaning team get the real time notification to their mobile device and swing into action to clean the tank and get ready for the next batch. The warehousing team are alerted as soon as packaging has been completed in the production area and dispatch team members to transfer the finished product to the cold storage area.
These two examples alone have made significant improvements to team member productivity which in turn has led to overall improvement in operational efficiency.
Our Team is looking forward to implementing additional Beer30 modules in order to deliver further tangible benefits to other parts of our operation.
MOOREBEER BREWING CO.
Beer30 has been a huge help in our business.
The brew data, beer movement from kettle to tank to packaging to customers, inventory tracking, distribution, and the way it all integrates together is fantastic.
There is a bit of a learning curve, but it's more intuitive than other systems we've used and well worth the effort! The team at Beer30 has been amazing with support and answering any questions along the way.
WITCHDOCTOR BREWING COMPANY
We're actively using Beer30 and we hit the ground running.
The onboarding and training program was exceptional and we immediately were able to integrate and make use of the system to improve our data tracking through all areas in production.
The system captures a lot of great data. What we love is the ability to look at the data in different ways to improve the quality of our beers as well as optimize workflows.
We have integrated Beer30 into the active brewing and fermentation daily processes so rather than write down data to go back and enter into a system later, we enter it live, one time, and it's done.
Seeing all of the information on demand saves time and improves our decision-making processes. We can pull specific data points or all of the data, it's really up to our needs at that moment.
Using this on our mobile devices, we have access to inventory at our fingertips, even when we are offsite.
Having the ability to see costs at any specific point or to see the final beer loaded cost has been important to look at cost management initiatives, especially in a world of constant raw material price increases.
We can measure quickly batch to batch the changes in overall costs or specific costs in a brand and at a batch to batch level.
We have had questions and the team at Beer 30 has been very prompt in responding. We need this kind of quick response to keep the brewery production team moving forward.
Hard to find a lot of suppliers with this level of service to the customer.
JERSEY GIRL BREWING
NEW JERSEY, USA
I took over a brewery as head brewer in January and was left with no recipes, no record keeping, and zero processes in place. With a mountain of obstacles in my way, Beer30 has made it incredibly easy to quickly put systems in place and start brewing.
We completed our onboarding process and had raw material and in-house keg inventory in place within 24hrs.
At the beginning of March, I brought in a Sales and Distribution Manager and was able to onboard the Sales and Distribution module.
Again within hours of the onboarding training, she had our accounts set up and systems in place to start tracking our distribution.
I have real-time access to every batch with COGS. It has completely eliminated the need for clipboards on tanks and whiteboards on walls.
Customer service is second to none.
It's like having them sitting in the room at the next desk able to answer questions whenever I have them.
Allowing them to take care of our data has allowed me to train my team correctly and focus solely on building a top-notch beer program.
FORT BREWERY & PIZZA
Beer30 has been a very valuable asset to our company and has improved our workflow, inventory, and throughput processes. Onboarding was swift and easy and the Beer30 team has been extremely responsive and helpful.
They continue to listen to their customers and integrate new features. It has helped us better understand our COGS which has helped us increase efficiency and profit margins.
Having all of our production information at our fingertips has meant less guesswork and faster response time to potential hiccups. Thank You PK and his team for making my job easier! Cheers!
LUCKY HARE BREWING COMPANY
NEW YORK, USA
Beer30 has helped us minimize spreadsheets, paperwork & redundant data entry while increasing data accuracy, lot traceability and accountability.
The handshake between operations and finances also gives us the ability to pinpoint inefficiencies and effectively address them.
Beer30 continues to positively influence operations in our brew house, cellar, lab, packaging floor and finance department.
The ability to have live inventory values at all times and at all levels of our beer production is game changing. The new COGS and batch tracking capabilities gives details we’ve never had on how our margins are performing and where we can improve our processes, as well as improves quality by giving us the resources to precisely track the life cycle of our beer from the brewhaus all the way to our distributors.
Beer30 has changed the way we record and analyze data in our brewery. Multiple users are able to enter real time data from the mash to the packaged product. This has created a much cleaner data reporting system, eliminating the need for paper batch cards, countless Excel files, and third party applications for scheduling.
Beer30 has become our go to software for tracking every batch of beer brewed. There's nothing more satisfying than reviewing the batch history for a beer and having all the information automatically pulled into a report at your fingertips.
The easy onboarding process and seamless integration to QuickBooks Online is, and has been, a great time saver. We have been able to eliminate several manually updated inventory spreadsheets. Now we can get the same information with just a couple of clicks in one software program. The inventory updates itself automatically as you are going through the brewing process. Creating Invoices from Sales Orders and Receiving Vouchers from Purchase Orders are simple processes and Syncs with QBO with a click of a button. We are really looking forward to having an Accounting Dashboard in the near future. It’ll save us even more time.
One of the things that impresses us most about this software is the quick response to issues and suggestions from Pulkit, Ryan, and the entire The 5th Ingredient team.
Beer30 has taken our production to the next level. At Your Mates Brewing Co, we tried unsuccessfully to onboard with other inventory systems due to long winded on-boarding processes.
After making the decision, we had on boarded and were brewing within two days and haven't skipped a beat since.
Beer30 is constantly evolving and is even more powerful than when we first started using the software and we are excited to see where the program takes us!
YOUR MATES BREWING CO.
Bucha30 was a real game changer for our business.
Having the history of that continuous brew right there, being tracked at all times is invaluable. I can see every action that’s been done with it and the information is easy to read. When you have a continuous brew it’s easy to let it go for a couple of weeks.
But when you have this software tracking its quality, you can see the data and it encourages you to take action.
And it links with inventory and accounting, as I can see the associated cost of harvesting the SCOBY and repitching the SCOBY.
Bucha30 also makes it really easy to go back and look at brews - and do analysis of flavors and taste and how it fermented out. It encourages us to constantly look at ways to increase quality and figure out what’s working - and what’s not.
One thing I know I’ll struggle to find anywhere else is the responsiveness of The 5th Ingredient team. If I have a question and I’m sweating it out at 10 o’clock at night, stressing about a problem - they are there. I don’t know how much sleep they get! But the response time is generally 15 - 20 minutes.
There really isn’t anything that can replace the value of this kind of service.
DR HOPS KOMBUCHA BEER
We (Eddyline Brewery NZ) needed a solution to 1) comply with our Food Control Plan tracing requirements from grain to glass, 2) track every sale by batch and ABV for NZ excise tax reporting, 3) have a straightforward way of keeping up with all brewery activities and beer performance (fermentation metrics, carbonation, analytics, etc) from brewing to packaging, and 4) accurate up-to-date costs by container size (i.e., how much does a can truly cost?). We needed this this to integrate with our bookkeeping so that we could reconcile brewery production with accounting.
Beer30 initially appeared to tick most of the boxes but couldn't do all of our needs. After a few conversations with PK and Ryan of Beer30 we were confident that they could design additional features to meet our needs. We began the onboarding and despite our not being able to give them very much of our time they were able to get us running.
Our brewer immediately adopted it and found it incredibly valuable and helpful and much easier than using paper brew sheets and instead enters all data as a brew progresses into Beer30 via a chromebook or his phone.
Throughout the onboarding and now as we use it we have instant customer support via a WhatsApp chat or quick call and despite our 18 hour time difference we have immediate support throughout our day (when do they sleep lol?)
Customer service is absolutely top notch which is a rare commodity in today's world.
The NZ excise tax reporting is cumbersome and expensive. Overpaying is easy to do but very costly and underpaying can result in stiff penalties and fees.
Since Beer30 tracks every batch from grain to glass it knows the ABV per batch which it then tracks into the packaged product. When a sale is made it is invoiced through Beer30 and then synced to Xero while tracking the sale for the excise tax return.
Now instead of spending 3-4 long days tracking sales and correlating each sale to the ABV and volumes it is literally a 2 click process and more importantly our confidence level is very high that there are ZERO ERRORS! The cost savings is realized by labor savings alone.
Beer30 is a time-saving production enhancing package that makes our brewery run smoother while letting us owners rest knowing we are able to meet the stringent requirements associated with a brewery. Is Beer30 the end all brewery software solution? Not yet, but we are confident that features will be added to make running our brewery simpler and the features it does not have are not critical but rather simple desires. These are integration with a recipe building software like BeerSmith. Ability to plan future brews and having Beer30 create purchase orders for those future brews based on current inventory, a restricted access module where employees rates of pay be entered and then they track their activities for improved costing and timekeeping, and an ability to add in other overhead costs that then could be allocated to beer costs.
Beer30 is a powerful and fast management software and the support provided is top notch. We are very pleased that we chose Beer30 and look forward to a long partnership.

ONCO Fermentations is excited to be the first NY brewery to sign on with The 5th Ingredient for all our brewery process, inventory, and analysis needs. We evaluated a lot of programs and this one hit all the buttons. Key to us was inventory tracking and charts comparing batches, sensory recording, barrel aging inventory, distribution logs with maps, and more.
The ease of use and hands on guidance, training, continuous updates based on client feedback, and support by this company has blown us away.

Since moving over to Beer30, we now have complete visibility across our brew data. Being able to review our past batch history and compare. Our systems and daily processes have been fast-tracked and overall productivity within our brewery has increased two-fold.
Admin time within our sales team including excise reporting has been streamlined immensely. We would highly recommend Beer30 to any craft brewery.
What I love about Beer30 is the
ability to graph any data from a single brand across multiple batches with just a few mouse clicks.
It also saves me countless trips to the file cabinet when I’m doing my month end beer costs and inventories. The
task module is light years ahead of my old white board
and now it even automatically schedules half the tasks right out of my recipes saving me tons of time! I can’t imagine going back to paper and spreadsheets."
PALS BREWING CO.
Beer30 was relatively quick and efficient with getting us through the onboarding process and helping us learn how the software worked.
They were ready to meet over zoom or on the phone any time we needed it. We had very little down time waiting for any kind of assistance.
GearHouse Brewing Co. has seen a level of growth in our efficiency and productivity since we began using the software.
As we have grown, so has our capability with it, and we have become more proficient over the last year of using it. We continue to learn and grow with this software, which in turn helps us grow as a brewery.
The ability for any of our team to pull up the portal on any device means that we are no longer tied to just a desktop or laptop computers. Tablets, phones, even our POS system can login through the web and see in real time what is where.
The ability to quickly track and trace any particular ingredient or batch allows us to know what our products contain, down to the specific lot numbers.
This makes the dreaded “recall” process much easier to precisely trace/track
COGS reporting is much more simple from the production side, once we had figured out how to include/incorporate all of our batch materials costs. It is an ongoing process, and the Beer30 team continues to improve & add to the software.
Our Sales team and delivery crew enjoy the ease of use with the Distribution Module.
Sales Orders can be brought up on any device and directly synced with QuickBooks Online to streamline all of our wholesale accounts.
The Beer30 team has been easily available for any questions we have had during the time we’ve been using the software (almost a year now!).
There is a Facebook group, the What’sApp communication app, the Knowledge Base, as well as direct email access to get answers or help resolving any issues.
GEARHOUSE BREWING CO.
Implementation and onboarding time took the better half of a week to fully complete. It was a very smooth process thanks to Beer30 being laid out in a way that accurately reflects the production process and how we view raw materials being converted into packaged beer.
Transitioning from our previous software to Beer30 was very easy. The time savings alone has been a huge improvement for us.
For example, we no longer have to wait over a minute to add an individual ingredient to a purchase order! The production staff was able to quickly adapt to Beer30 and easily troubleshoot issues thanks to Beer30's logically designed layout.
We are tracking more data points in Beer30 than we previously were which has provided new insight into our production processes and allowed us to confidently make process changes backed by hard data rather than anecdotal experience. Previously we were using an extensive collection of spreadsheets which are now consolidated into one, easily accessed format, thanks to Beer30.
We are able to access production data quickly and easily on our mobile devices. Having an unlimited amount of accounts allows for anybody to easily access the data they need at any time.
Being able to easily visualize the costs associated with each batch has been an extremely helpful feature for us.
If the costs of a batch are looking too high or too low while the beer is in production, we are able to make quick corrections such as making ingredient additions to a beer or adjusting the cost of a beer before it goes to market.
Customer Support has been extremely helpful especially with onboarding and settling into Beer30. The turnaround time from asking a question to getting a response is very quick which allows us to problem solve in real time rather than waiting until a software update comes along that will hopefully help with the issue we're experiencing.
MAST LANDING BREWING CO.
Beer30 was quick to set up and get acquainted with.
Having a brewing software that syncs directly to QBO was necessary and it is very easy to sync purchase orders and sales invoices over to our accountant.
The sales and distribution module is user friendly and quick to use as well. "

Beer30 hands down has saved Pilot Project money, time, and resources by implementing a one-stop management platform for all brewery related work.
From the in-depth brewing dashboard, COGS calculator, and accurate inventory to the distribution hub, QBO integration, and robust analytics. Most facets of our business can be seen directly in Beer30.
The constant updates and new features shows the passion and dedication from the Beer30 team to bring the industry a comprehensive brewery management system. Quick responses and turnaround from Pulkit and the team make fixes easy and less time consuming so we can get back to what we do best.
Beer30 has also changed the way we see and interpret certain data as well.
Brewery reports and tax filing on every level has become more seamless, saving us time on the backend.
Being able to track brands by batches has allowed us to determine where to alter ingredients, distribution prices, and the overall brewing process with clear cut calculations. We can better track in-house product vs. distribution and with our own clientele base help make decisions on all relative facets.
Beer30 deserves two thumbs up and it’s exciting to see where the industry evolves with its help."
PILOT PROJECT BREWING
Beer30 was quick to set up and get the staff on-board with.
The onboarding process was smooth, the customer support has been consistent, clear, efficient and extremely quick, and we immediately saw benefits of having our recipes, processes, and data in one place. The user interface is very intuitive.
The benefits of a quick visual UI for production, management and sales to check in on daily really has helped demystify the workflow and gotten the team onto the same page in ways that were harder to do with emails, shared docs, etc. Setting daily parameters for various recipes has helped to automate many aspects of production such as spunding, viability checks, d-rests, and so on, freeing up that management time for other tasks.
Now newly using the sensory module, we are excited to delve into more of the aspects of the software and see what other benefits it can bring to our production, taproom, and retail staff.
The customer service is exceptional and we would certainly recommend it to other breweries looking for an all-in-one software solution. We like it a lot.
NORTH BREWING CO.
NOVA SCOTIA, CANADA
Beer30 was an instant upgrade over our previous brewery management software for one simple reason: it’s software that brewers actually want to use.
Instead of focusing on tedious steps for accounting purposes, Beer30 shifts the focus to how a brewer would use the software. It was easy and intuitive to understand the flow. Because of this, brewers were excited to use the software which led to better overall cost tracking and management. Layer in fantastic support from the team at The 5th Ingredient, their desire to constantly make their software better, and the iterative approach to releasing new features,
our switch to Beer30 was one of the best decisions we have made in our short history.
THE GOOD SOCIETY BREWERY
Beer30 has been a game changer in the overall organization of data collection, batch tracking and workflow across the brewery. As a growing business, amid a global pandemic, we could not have picked a better time to jump onboard with Pulkit and his team. It was a seamless transition from coffee-stained brew logs, excel spreadsheets and binders to a comprehensive software where everything is simply a few clicks away.
Since onboarding, we have moved all production planning and data entry into Beer30. Brew sheets, fermentation & yeast tracking, transfer data, CIP logs, QA/QC records and more all have a dedicated home within the platform. The recipes and fermentation schedules for each brand are programmed into the software which conveniently auto populate a schedule for the week. If the schedule changes, as it oftentimes does, it is easy to drag and drop tasks to the adjusted date/time.
Each member of the production team has a log-in, so it is easy to track who did what and when. I love how easy it is to login to the software on my cellphone and check the status of production when I am out of the plant. Pulkit and his team are incredibly responsive when questions arise and are quick to find solutions to our problems. It has been a pleasure working with the team and we look forward to the evolution of Beer30.
FIVE BOROUGHS BREWING CO.

Using Beer30 is a breeze, setup was very easy but thorough, and has contributed to us making better beer. It has also made some of our reporting much easier, by being able to track costs and sales, as well as brewery production and packaging all in one place. Being that it integrates well with our accounting software, Xero, also reduces double handling of invoices and purchase orders. Customer service is outstanding, often having responses within minutes to any query. Ditch your spreadsheets and jump on to Beer30!
IRONBARK HILL BREWHOUSE
Absolutely love this package! We can capture all the data from inventory to sale, in depth too. Graphs for ferment, ABV, PH and Gravity. Easy to design planner, with steps checked off all through the process. Brew day is smooth with this software. All data flows well and is easy to read at a later stage.
Beer30 gives us the flexibility to enter data on site, with easy access for all departments of the brewery, in the brewhouse, cellaring, and office.
I have no doubt we are a better brewery with Beer30. There are cost savings by shaving time off paperwork and squeaky clean accurate record keeping -- not to mention processes followed without mishaps. We are able to set SOPs, CIP processes, and filtering dynamics. I love this software.
BAROSSA VALLEY BREWING
SOUTH AUSTRALIA, AUSTRALIA
As the director of brewing for Outworld Brewing I can’t say enough about the professionalism and customer support from the Beer30.
Outworld Brewing is a brand new brewery and before we opened to the public, I wanted to change the way I had always kept my brewing records like on excel spread sheets etc. and use a web-based platform that could account for full brewery data in one place like inventory management from grain, hops, crowlers, and kegs. I also wanted all brewing process management in the same place like recipes, brew session data, fermentation, filtration, FV & BBT additions, wood barrel beer management, packaging and distribution tracking in other words full grain to glass management. Beer30 had all of that and more.
It was very easy to onboard while being very user friendly and, like I said before, their customer service is hands down the best customer service I have ever dealt with in the brewing industry with almost real time problem solving any time of the day or night.
Beer30 has saved me lots of time by not having to look through multiple spreadsheet’ files etc. and has allowed me to focus more on important tasks like creating new products and more. I am very pleased to be a customer of The 5th Ingredient’s Beer30."
OUTWORLD BREWING CO.
As a professional brewer, the more time I can spend on innovating products, customer relations and planning out the future of the brewery the better. Beer30 has helped me do that by not only streamlining our inventory management and production, but going way beyond by integrating into our point of sales and even accounting software.
It has taken our brewery from the dark paper ages to the 21st century. There's probably even a graph that can show you how much money and time T5I has saved me.
Cannot recommend them highly enough!
It truly is the 5th ingredient in a great beer.
Bryggverket used pen and paper tracking our beers for a long time. But as we grew we had to find a better system than that. I think I Googled for a week before finding anything that seemed to have what we needed and wouldn't ruin us. After I found and got in touch with The5thingredient everything worked out really fast. We had a video session and Pulkit showed me how Beer30 worked and set up WhatsApp for support.
I sat down a couple of hours myself to transfer all the recipes, ingredients and yeasts and just to get to know Beer30. And we were off. All the questions I've had during start-up and after that has been answered really fast.
We quickly got a tablet with a waterproof case to have in the brewery when using Beer30. Very quick and easy to use and to adapt to whatever you want it to do. We've added a lot of measuring points during brewing and fermentation apart from what is included, such as VDK test, starch test, HLP test, wort test and FFT.
But what I like best about it is that I don't have to have everything in my head and remind everyone at the brewery what has to be done, it keeps track of all the ingredients and warns us if anything is running low.
We all get reminders for the tasks we are supposed to do and Beer30 scales the recipes, so every brew tastes the same every time. It is simple, saves us time and makes sure we don't miss anything or have a shortage of ingredients.
We're definitely going to continue using Beer30 and as we continue to grow, we'll add more of the modules available. Cheers The 5th Ingredient. Thanks for an awesome software!"
For us being a new brewery (opened Oct 2020), Beer30 has helped us with some growing pains when it comes to production scheduling and cost analysis.
One of my favorite features is the purchasing module and how it tracks inventory and ties it back into raw materials cost for each batch. It's so quick and seamless and doesn't require me to have a ton of spreadsheets all over the place.
Implementation was quick & simple and the support is world-class."
XUL BEER CO.
I remember the days before Beer30 like it was yesterday. Back then, we were for the most part flying blind in many areas, like inventory and yeast generation tracking, in which Beer30 has since helped us grow exponentially more organized.
As a Brewer, Beer30 has made my job much easier. Things such as a live inventory of all Raw Materials have helped us plan out the brewing schedule with ease.
So many times before Beer30 we would scramble at the last minute to find substitutes for grain that we thought we had, causing us to push back brew dates and move things around. Frustrating, I know.
Outside of Raw Material inventory tracking, Beer30 seamlessly lets us track kegs and cases of cans, and enter brewing information in real time, and provides a single workspace for brewing batches, from recipe development to packaging and selling. For us, a smaller brewery that brews 1,400bbls or so a year, this program is perfect for us.
Many other programs we have used in the past were not as user friendly, and we spent more time fixing bugs and learning the software than brewing itself.
And beyond the amazing software, I have never dealt with a company whose developers are as responsive and helpful as the crew at Beer30. They have really developed the perfect software for brewers to use."
MACLEOD ALE BREWING
In previous occasions we had tried data programs but the truth is that they were always inaccessible, in terms of costs, and quite complex to manage.
When trying Beer30 we realized that in just 1 day we had put all our tanks, recipes, customers, etc. And we said this is the program we were looking for!
Today, I know exactly how much raw material and how much beer (in tanks, BT, Bottles, Kegs...) I have in the brewery, and I know exactly the cost of each thing. In each recipe, it does not matter if you add 1 gr of Whirfloc, or 50 ml of alkaline detergent, it all adds to the cost of beer, and this makes you know, at the end of the day, how much to spend on it. We can track each input that we add to beer thanks to the traceability that the program has. Sales became very streamlined as vendors place their orders in Beer30, and then at the brewery we put it together, order it, and that's it!
In conclusion, I have not used Excel, nor the calculator since we started with Beer30, everything is there, all in one place!
PS: It doesn't matter if you are a workaholic and you work on a Sunday at 4am, the technical support does not sleep, they are always there to help you!"
CORAZÓN DE MALTA SA DE CV
The startup for Beer30 was pretty seamless for me. An easy walk through with PK on the demo was enough to feel confident I could operate the software. I love the depth of data that I can provide at my own discretion on a recipe. The flow of materials and process is super simple and makes tracking a breeze. A few brews in and I was very familiar with how things move throughout the system.
Every time I brew I'm catching things on our new system, and able to record that through Beer30 notes and track improvements from brew to brew. This will help us in the short run and long run being able to consistently improve our efficiencies throughout the brewery.
Batch costing is very important to us as a brewpub. We want to maximize those over the counter margins and know right from the beginning what our COGS are for each recipe, even before we brew it. Once the raw materials are in there, you can build those recipes with pricing on them in real time and know exactly what your pricing should be at the tap.
The responsiveness of PK to help in the few times I've had something go wrong is crucial. Not only is he responding quickly but they fix the issue on the back end every time, continuously evolving the software every time. The dude must not sleep!
CHANDLERS FORD BREWING
Beer30 has been instrumental to our brewery by allowing us to implement processes in a much faster and more convenient way than our previous manual system. Pulkit and the team are always on standby to offer assistance and consistently working on ways to improve current modules and add new features. Being able to integrate with our accounting software (Xero) has been a godsend for our accounts department! Highly recommend this software!
BOILING POT BREWING
Beer30 is a new approach to software, designed for a new approach to making beer and running a brewery. Over the past year, Beer30 has grown up with us. While it currently provides us with about 75% of what we need, it is far and above any other option on the market and continues to evolve.
Originally just used as a Brewing log, we now use it in every aspect of our business, from taproom to distribution, to brewing and production.
Additionally, as we encounter new needs for the app, the team is quick to respond and release new features to support our needs."
Beer30 is a great all round tool for any brewery operator. The customer service is next level. The app is constantly being upgraded with features. I feel like we are only using it to a small amount of its potential, it has so much to offer. It seriously is an "all-in-one" brewery software kit. From inventory, to recipes, CRM and cellaring and heaps more. Currumbin Valley Brewing loves it.
CURRUMBIN VALLEY BREWING
We had used or tested out several other management programs but none of them checked all of the boxes that we were looking for. Beer30 has allowed us to focus on our processes and then be able to overlay them to ensure we are getting as consistent a product as possible. The team at The 5th Ingredient is always seconds away with answers to question and quick to take and suggestions. Their responsiveness to us as a customer allows us to grow and integrate other modules as our needs arise without outgrowing the system.
RED CROW BREWING CO.
We found that Pulkit and his team have been very receptive about new ideas and upgrades for the software. We don’t use The 5th Ingredient for accounting. We primarily purchased the application as I wanted better visibility into what our inventory was. It has provided me the ability to look at inventory when I am away from the brewery so that I can better tell my distribution partners what I have available for them to purchase.
It is also giving me the ability to manage the inventory for a tasting room as well. We are able to put in all of our beer recipes into the application as well as our inventory for grain and hops. When we brew now, it will subtract our grain and hops inventory, as based on the recipe from what we have on hand. It also allows us to see what’s in every tank that we currently have. We have a 10 barrel brewhouse, a 20 barrel bright tank, 5-30 barrel fermenters, 2-20 barrel fermenters, and a 10 barrel fermenter.
With so much going on with brewing operations, it’s giving us visibility into what we have in every tank at any point in time. It also allows me to schedule out tasks for my team for the upcoming week. I get
notifications via text and email as tasks are completed
based on settings that I have provided.
I’ve also given an account to each of my sales team so that they can login and see what we currently have available for distribution sales as well. This has allowed them to be more agile been in the field dealing with accounts and being able to tell them that they can have Brand XYZ.
We operated for a year and a half without the software and I wish we had purchased this a lot sooner.
SLOW POUR BREWING CO.
Tidal Creek selected Beer30 about 18 months ago and is very pleased with the decision. Beer30 is a great tool to help us manage production, inventory and purchasing and easily syncs with QBO.
Pulkit and his team continue to work on adding features and improving the tool as well, demonstrating their commitment to the product. Most importantly, the service levels and responsiveness are very high – Pulkit is always available to answer a question or help with an issue."
