What our customers are saying

Sanctus Brewing

We were after a solution that would not only track costs and progress of the brewing cycle, but also inventory and invoice integration with our accounting software (Xero). Needless to say we were stoked to find this solution already exists with Beer30![Read More]

Kim Geritz,
Townsend, NSW, Australia
ONCO Fermentations, Inc.

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. The ease of use and hands on guidance, training, continuous updates based on client feedback, and support by this company has blown us away.[Read More]

Erin Bullard & Brian Bullard, Founders
Tully, New York, USA
Blindman Brewing

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.” [Read More]

Lisa Barclay, Head Brewer
& Matt Willerton, General Manager
Lacome, Alberta, Canada
The Brewing Projekt

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. 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.” [Read More]

William Glass, Founder
Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA
Corazón de Malta SA de CV

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 conclusion, I have not used Excel, nor the calculator since we started with Beer30, everything is there, all in one place![Read More]

Germán Schilman, Owner
Jalisco, Mexico
Barossa Valley Brewing

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. [Read More]

Josh Pentreath, Team Leader
Tanunda, South Australia, Australia
Your Mates Brewing Co.

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. [Read More]

Christen McGarry, Owner
Warana, Queensland, Australia
Mast Landing Brewing Company

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.” [Read More]

Simon Burhoe, Head Brewer
Westbrook, Maine, USA
Pals Brewing Company

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. I can’t imagine going back to paper and spreadsheets.” [Read More]

Paul Oettinger, Head of Manufacturing & QA
North Platte, Nebraska, USA
Boiling Pot 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. Being able to integrate with our accounting software (Xero) has been a godsend for our accounts department! Highly recommend this software!” [Read More]

John Scott Madill, Owner
Noosaville, Queensland, Australia
Pelican Brewing

Pelican Brewing is fortunate to be growing rapidly. This growth has stressed systems that historically provided visibility of liquid staging & migration… 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. [Read More]

Martin G. Bills, Director of Brewing Operations
& Jason Schlebach, Brewery Manager
Tillamook, Oregon, USA
Five Boroughs Brewing Co.

Beer30 has been a game changer in the overall organization of data collection, batch tracking and workflow across the brewery. 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.[Read More]

Mat Johnson, Head of Brewing & Quality Management
Brooklyn, New York, USA
Red Crow Brewing Company

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.[Read More]

Chris Roberts, Co-Founder & Head Brewer
Olathe, Kansas, USA
Pilot Project Brewing

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.” [Read More]

Jordan Radke, Co-founder & COO
Chicago, Illinois, USA
The Good Society Brewery

Beer30 was an instant upgrade over our previous brewery management software for one simple reason: it’s software that brewers actually want to use. 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.[Read More]

Nick Berger, Owner
Seattle, Washington, USA
Silver Branch Brewing

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... Very cool stuff. Finally, a brewing software that we're excited about! [Read More]

Brett A. Robison, Co-founder & COO
Silver Spring, Maryland, USA
IronBark Hill Brewhouse

Using Beer30 is a breeze, setup was very easy but thorough, and has contributed to us making better beer. Customer service is outstanding, often having responses within minutes to any query. Ditch your spreadsheets and jump on to Beer30![Read More]

Andrew Drayton, Owner & Head Brewer
Pokolbin, NSW, Australia
Outworld Brewing Company

As the director of brewing for Outworld Brewing I can’t say enough about the professionalism and customer support from the Beer30. 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. ” [Read More]

Michael Hall, Head Brewer
Longmont, Colorado, USA
Xul Beer Co.

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.[Read More]

Brad West, Owner
Knoxville, Tennessee, USA
North Brewing Company

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. [Read More]

Rozina Darvesh, Owner
& Josh Herbin, Operations Manager
Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada
MacLeod Ale Brewing

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. 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.[Read More]

Stephen Reeves, Head Brewer
Van Nuys, California, USA
Eddyline Brewery NZ

The NZ excise tax reporting is cumbersome and expensive. 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.[Read More]

Mic Heynekamp, Owner
Stoke, Nelson, New Zealand
Dr Hops Kombucha Beer

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. ...There really isn’t anything that can replace the value of this kind of service.[Read More]

Tommy Weaver, Co-Founder & Brewmaster
San Leandro, California, USA
Latchkey 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. 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.[Read More]

Matt West, Co-Founder
& Gerald Dollente, Co-Founder
San Diego, California, USA
Slow Pour Brewing Company

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. I get notifications via text and email as tasks are completed based on settings that I have provided. We operated for a year and a half without the software and I wish we had purchased this a lot sooner.[Read More]

John Reynolds, Founding Partner
Lawrenceville, Georgia, USA
Chandlers Ford Brewing

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. ” [Read More]

Doug Tibbs, Owner
Huntsville, Alabama, USA

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. [Read More]

Patrik Hellström, Owner
Umeå, Sweden
White Dog Brewing

Questions are always answered almost immediately, the onboarding was easy and fast, and they are always open to suggestions and hearing how brewers/ businesses actually need the software to work. Even to the point that after asking a question, that day or the next they have made a change to the software to make it easier to use or address a need we had. They have never told us, "we can't do that", they find a way. [Read More]

Dan Jordan, Co-Owner
Boise, Idaho, USA
Aether Brewing

From the moment we saw it and had a look through, we loved the system. Its brewery side features are brilliant, intuitive and comprehensive. … 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.[Read More]

Dave Ward, Co-Owner & Head Brewer
Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
Market Garden Brewery

As soon as I discovered the capabilities of Beer30 ... it was a no brainer to switch over from Orchestrated Beer. After only a few short weeks we began to see cost savings in time and materials from this cloud based solution. The process insights have empowered our entire team ... to grow our business and profitability.[Read More]

Mike Foran, Co-Founder & COO
Cleveland, Ohio, USA
Tidal Creek Brewhouse

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. … Most importantly, the service levels and responsiveness are very high.” [Read More]

... 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!” [Read More]

Jonathan Porter, Owner / Brewer
Torrance, California, USA
Currumbin Valley Brewing

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. Currumbin Valley Brewing loves it” [Read More]

"Smokey" Pete Wheldon, Co-Founder
Currumbin Valley, Queensland, Australia
Exile Brewing

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.” [Read More]

RJ Tursi, Founder & CEO

Des Moines, Iowa, USA
Eden Brewery

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.[Read More]

Jacob Newman, Owner & Head Brewer
Mittagong, NSW, Australia
Protector Brewery

For us, the Beer30 software is a powerful tool for distribution, processing, and reporting. Key benefits have been keeping track of our kegs, tracing batches back to lot numbers, and quickly doing our TTB reports. When it comes to being an organic brewery, accurate reporting is extremely important and Beer30 has been a huge help in that process.” [Read More]
