Bar managers are required to keep track of the bar's inventory, including all brands of beers, wines and liquor. Some beverages sell more than others, which means the inventory needs to be stocked more often with big sellers. Also, the bar manager must also remember which suppliers offer what beverages, as the beer, wine and liquor offered may be supplied by different manufacturers.

Master Inventory Sheet

One way in which a bar manager can create an inventory sheet is to create a master inventory sheet that includes all wines, beers and spirits offered by the bar. The content can be added in alphabetical order based on the names of each individual product offered or by the name of each manufacturer or distributor. Another method is to list the most popular products on the first and second page, as those are frequently purchased for stocking up the bar's inventory.

Beers Vs. Wine Vs. Liquor

Another way to create an inventory sheet for a bar is to create individual sheets for each type of alcohol offered by the bar. For example, one sheet can list all types of beers available on both bottle and tap, another a sheet has the wines served in bottles or glasses and a third sheet lists liquor and spirits. If the bar offers various whiskeys, vodkas and rums, a separate sheet can be created for each liquor type.

Content on Inventory Sheet

Despite the structure of the bar inventory sheet, it must contains specific information about the items listed on it. The listings should include the brand and kind of alcohol, the size of the bottles or kegs, the unit price, the sales price in the bar, the quantity available in the bar at the given time and the minimum number of bottles allowed in stock before a new purchase must be made.

Importance of Inventory Sheet

An inventory sheet is important for a bar, as it will help control the contents of the bar in terms of waste, purchases and theft. An inventory control sheet also helps the manager ensure that all types of liquor, beer and wine are available when customers order specific drinks. An inventory sheet will also help control the waste, especially since beer kegs have expiration dates once they have been opened. Bar managers should not purchase beer kegs for the bar unless all of the beer will be sold, for example.
