Microbrewery business is more than just beer

Running a microbrewery business is more than just beer.

The microbrewery and the local draft house have an appeal that is no secret to most beer fans.  This resurgence has been in part driven by customers wanting fuller flavors, wider varieties, and a desire to support a hometown business. But there is something more than just the love of coffeeish malts or piney bitters that draws customers into the microbrewery… it is a culture of experience and community.

From hurling axes at wooden bulls-eyes to buying dripping cheese sandwiches from a hosted food truck, the booming microbrewery business is as much about providing an enjoyable atmosphere as it is the beer itself. Many microbreweries have taprooms that link with axe-throwing, stumps for playing Nails, live music, and varying food options from food trucks. Microbrewery tap-houses and tasting rooms have sprouted in most local communities where regular faces return week after week.

Microbrews can be found at beer tastings and town festivals offering their wares not only from their own tap houses but also on the road at popup events. With so many different ways for a microbrewery to provide their art to the public, you need a Point of Sale versatile enough to work from beer halls to tents in a straw covered field.

You need Clover and here’s why:

Mobile Advantages

If you want to offer guests the convenience to pay at the table, you need a mobile option which Clover provides. Something lightweight and easy to use with the tap of a finger.  Something that allows your customers to keep enjoying their samples while you focus on sales growth.

Clover Flex puts your entire POS in the palm of your hands. If you want to set up your microbrewery at a festival, you can activate the 3G option on your Clover Flex even if there’s no WiFi service. Clover Flex and Mini provide on-the-go options for taking payments that make processing flexible and quick.

Don’t forget most customers today are also paying with their mobile devices and need options that allow for NFC-payments. With Clover, you can accept Apple Pay, Android Pay, and more with an advanced POS system.


When you are providing running a microbrewery business, you need a point of sale that makes the transaction the smoothest portion of a customer’s experience. Using a reliable point of sale like Clover provides reliable, durable, and field tested service tools for your business.

Clover Station, the full counter-top POS system offers a range of capabilities for businesses. Clover also adheres to all PCI-DSS compliance standards, and features end-to-end encryption, data tokenization, mutually authenticated SSL, and more.
