For those selling beer directly from your shop, it’s all about the beer carriers. Ours come in kraft card or fabric jute and both are genius for upselling stock when offering a buy 5 get 1 free or similar promotion.
WBC’s range of beer boxes and bags is growing every day with the surging popularity of artisan craft beer. And really they work too if Charlotte Dean, from Wined Up Here is anything to go by, she says:
“We bought 50 jute beer bags and offered them free when people bought 6 beers. If anyone came to the counter with 3 or 4 beers, we mentioned the free bag and it was a no-brainer. People just upped their purchase to 6 beers. We sold out of the bags and bought more in January and the trick still works!”
