We’ve got a pretty decent mix of home users and commercial users here. For you folks using Taplist.io in a bar / brewery or other retail setting, this thread’s for you: What are you liking? What could be better? If you set up a TV just for the list, how’s it been going? Any cool photos to share?
I get a lot of great feedback directly but wanted to give y’all a chance to share!
(Bonus points: Where in the world are you and should we visit? )
We use it & love it at Grindhaus Brew Lab in Clearwater, FL (and yes, you should visit)! We had Untappd for business and it was great, but at $600/yr it just didn’t give us the ROI that we wanted. In my opinion, Taplist.io is easier to use, plus I love the virtual keg room/on deck section. I followed the tutorial to add a facebook tab, and that worked beautifully. The only things I can think of that I would like is a short code to embed it on our wordpress site (right now we have a link) and a printable version. We also have a homebrew supply store and get a lot of business from small breweries and breweries in planning, and we tell everyone about it. Cheers and thank you!
We’re liking it. Would be cool to be able to fit more on the screen (when including descriptions it ends up going to 2 pages with 12 taps) Maybe a spot for wifi info for customers or a slideshow image to pop up instead of the scrolling list? Just a couple ideas there. Overall very pleased. We have our menu live on our website as well (managed to embed it. Interesting that it stays on griddy in the embed, no problem with it, probably could change in the embed code.) Very useful for having the taplist live on our site and exactly that same as taproom. http://www.visionquestbrewing.com/beers/
what about the ability to print the list to a PDF? for me I like the way the menu looks on my screen so just the ability to print it so people sitting at tables can also see a paper version of it somehow.
Another thing is prices - we make our own beer so instead of producer we use that field for prices of samples, pints, 32 oz and 64 oz fills but someway to list pricing would be great
Were using it at Ookapow Brewing in West Palm Beach Florida. Yes you definitely should visit.
Were serving from 15 taps and have a couple non beer items listed for a total of 17 items at this time. I don’t want to scroll to multiple pages so the only option that makes sense is to use Dense. One issue that is driving me mad is that the taps seem to be scattered randomly on the page. I want to have my non beer items to be the last two items in the list but can’t seem to make that happen. Also on deck beers do not list as coming soon unless I have tap numbers enabled. They just show somewhere in the list randomly. I’d like better control over where they are placed in the list.
Good news! Both of these issues will be fixed in a change rolling out tomorrow. You also have the option of layout out taps left-to-right (horizontally) or top-to-bottom (vertically), and enabling or disabling an interleaving stripe on the grid.
(As the night before Thanksgiving is a big bar night in the US, we’re avoiding changes today. Plus - where do you imagine I will be? ).
PS @brewski_59 - your list is beautiful! It’s also one of “busier” dense lists and something that we were doing visual diff testing on. Hope you don’t mind me sharing a screenshot, in case it inspires anyone else…
I searched google for images that would fit my need. Using pictures of pints with light or dark colored beer. then using Photoshop, (or your favorite image editor) I cropped them down and sized them where it looked good. Also isolated the background to make it transparent. Saved as a .PNG file then uploaded to the beverage database.
