If you’re running a café or restaurant then you’ll probably be the absolute growth ninja when it comes to coffee, food and even wine. Often beer gets overlooked as it’s relatively simple and can take care of itself, right? Wrong! There are things to know about beer that can make all the difference to what’s in your till at the end of the day, and at Malt Shovel we’re here to make sure you get where you need to go!


Draught beer – the better beer experience

If you aren’t yet serving beer in glasses, then you could be missing out on the 32% of consumers who say they always buy tap beer. 37% buy it because it tastes better, while 17% buy it because they believe it to be better priced than bottled beer. We can help with a free trial and installation of a draught beer tap system in your outlet to help inspire extra rounds for the whole table – this includes easy countertop options or permanent installation, plus support and training to suit. Be sure to ask our team about branded glasses and barware, too!

Café & Restaurant FAQs

I really want tap beer, but we just don’t have the space. Can you help?

Malt Shovel has several different options for tap beer, including easy countertop options to fit spaces big and small. We can also provide cleaning and maintenance training for your staff to keep you pouring without interruption!

We’re not sure if tap beer is for us, but we would like to trial it out. Can we do this?

Absolutely. We can provide a free trial and installation of a draught beer system for your cafe or restaurant. Its 100% risk free with the option to back out at any time, so why not try it out today!

We don’t sell a lot of beer, is there a minimum we must order?

At Malt Shovel we understand that different businesses have different needs, and we cater for all. That’s why we have no minimum freight on all orders.

We usually just buy beer from the bottle shop. Is Malt Shovel easier than just doing this?

Malt Shovel’s philosophy is Good Beer, Made Easy – and we mean it! We’ve taken all the hassle out of ordering to make it as simple as possible.  That means quick and easy sign up, flexible delivery to suit your schedule, and simple payment options. Oh, and you can order straight from your phone using our app. How good’s that?

We want to order all our alcoholic products through the same supplier, can we do this with Malt Shovel?

We know how frustrating it can be trying to keep track of multiple orders and deliveries at once, and now you don’t have to. Malt Shovel is not just a beer company, we’re a one-stop-shop for all your beer, wine and kombucha needs.
