What is a POS system for bars and breweries?
Straight up, it’s a point-of-sale system designed to help you succeed. The right platform offers everything from secure bar tabs1 and tip-pooling to easy inventory management and in-depth reporting. Switch to Square Restaurant POS so you can delight more customers, make smart decisions backed by data, and keep your space buzzing — right up until last call.
How it started
If you’re enjoying a drink at Southern Grist, odds are you’ll hear the phrase “always something.” It’s such a common refrain that they named a beer after it in a nod to the challenges that come with running a brewery — equipment failure, power outages in the taproom, you name it. So when it came to their POS, the team wanted a system that would help to calm the chaos. After trialing other vendors, Southern Grist partnered with Square and opened their first location in 2016.
How it’s going
After initially running just on-site transactions through the platform, Southern Grist now uses the full ecosystem. They run a successful marketing ship with targeted email campaigns that pack their spaces with happy customers, and with the reporting feature, they send revenue analytics straight to their accountant, making tax season go down as easy as one of their beers. Each week sees the Nashville staple release two to five new brews for their community, who can now sample the creations at two taprooms, one of which features an in-house fast-casual concept. With Square running reliably in the background, Southern Grist’s 60-plus staff members can put their energy toward the ultimate goal: delivering pint after pint of fine Southern hospitality.
