Mastering the Art of Brewery Management

As a Software as a Service (SaaS) platform for brewery management, simply put, at Brew Ninja, we help breweries like yours run their business better. 

Operating stealthily in the background, we allow you to focus on what you love – brewing great beer. Handling everything from tracking inventories and sales, to deliveries and returns – our software can even help with taxes. 

But just who are we – the shadow-warriors behind this brewery management software–? Where are we as a business in the here and now?

 

Let’s find out.

 

Brew To Market

Founders Shea and Matt knew they were brewing a great product when – after a lengthy beta – our SaaS went from one brewery in 2019, to 20 breweries in 2020, to 50 in 2021. So far it’s been a story of steady growth – and we’re right behind the craft brewery boom. 

With customers ranging from 400 to 20,000 barrels per year, Brew Ninja is proving to be a versatile brewery management system. 

Shea originally developed the software as a prototype for a craft brewery – the first in Regina, Saskatchewan. At that time, there was a lot of texting between sales and production staff. An order would come in and it would get written on a whiteboard. Someone else would come along and, to make space, they’d erase the message. The wrong order would go out – or worse – the sale would be missed.   

The brewery liked what they saw in Shea’s initial software but they spotted some gaps. Given six months, Shea fine-tuned the software and they became our first customer. As more craft breweries began to open up around town, Shea got Matt onboard and they started to grow our client base.

 

Fermentation Period 

When you get into brewing to make great beer, tech that can streamline your day to day activities doesn’t usually come into play until you’re hitting the 1,500 to 2,000 barrel mark. 

Around that point, most brewers realize they need more hires – for production, sales, and accounting. Your brewery is growing. Communication and oversight is key. Brew Ninja puts all your brewery management needs into one simple solution.     

At Brew Ninja, we firmly believe in making the step up from no-tech to go-tech as painless as possible. The simplicity of software means everyone in your business can understand and access and enter what they need, when they need it.

Optimized for mobile devices, Brew Ninja software gives you functionality at your fingertips, so you can be on the brewery floor with the latest data on the value in your storage room, in your tanks, and on the tap. 

Our software enables you to make accounting entries at every step of the process. You calculate cost per brew, track sales, scan and track kegs. It also has tax reporting functionality. You can even use it to have customers sign off on deliveries. 

 

“Brew Ninja simply works...and really simplified our day to day”
