Aspen Brewing Company is now using business management software Ekos to maximize sales and improve visibility

Aspen brewery brings software partner up the mountain to assist in growth plans

ASPEN, Colo. (July 5, 2022) — Located 8,000 feet above sea level in the scenic Rocky Mountains, Aspen Brewing Company, owned by High Country Brewing LLC, is now using the leading business management software for breweries in the United States and Canada, Ekos.

Known for empowering craft producers to take control of their inventory, production, sales, and accounting processes, Ekos is the only end-to-end brewery management software on the market. The software integrates with accounting solutions, POS systems, and ecommerce platforms to provide a robust system for brewers to cut down on manual processes and simplify their day-to-day lives. 

After trying multiple competitors to Ekos, Brewmaster Scott Kimball said he was frustrated with their “complex and slow” interfaces. Conversely, Scott, who used Ekos when co-founding well-known Charlotte brewery Triple C, says Ekos’s intuitive and simple interface has been a “welcome change.”

“Real-time inventory and historical sales data help our sales and production teams make realistic goals and work together to achieve those goals,” Scott said. “With detailed batch tracking, our production team can work in the brewhouse to maximize our efficiency to lower COGS as our input costs rise.”

Aspen Brewing is using Ekos to track the brewery’s many sales channels, gain real-time inventory and historical data, and boost sales. Plus, the reporting functions are a breath of fresh air to the team, who have experienced a TTB audit prior to onboarding with Ekos. Scott says accessing reports in Ekos’s cloud-based application has tremendously cut down on the time he spent in “messy spreadsheets” before Ekos.

“Aspen Brewing Company’s dedicated and curious nature is part of what makes their team such a great fit for Ekos,” said Ekos CEO Josh McKinney. “We’re thrilled that Aspen chose Ekos to help the brewery gain visibility and maximize sales, and we can’t wait to grow together.”
