Bircus Brewing Company brings business management software into the ring

The circus-inspired brewery is now managing their brewery’s production, inventory, and more with Ekos

LUDLOW, Ky. (Sept. 6, 2022) — Bircus Brewing Company, founded by a group of circus educators and entrepreneurs, is now using Ekos to manage all facets of their business using brewery management software Ekos.

Bircus Brewing has a unique birthplace: a circus educators’ conference in Germany. The founders united over the ideas of local history, community outreach, unique entertainment, and stellar beer. A few years later, Bircus came to life with a small 25-person taproom. Today, Bircus Brewing operates out of the historic Ludlow Theatre in Kentucky.

“We’re thrilled to be using Ekos to help our business standardize internal processes, better manage inventory, and inform our team to make the best business decisions they can,” said Sales Manager Matt Cremeans. “Ekos’s reporting and mobile capabilities are fantastic and I can’t wait to see what we’re able to accomplish together.”

Ekos is the leading business management software for breweries in the United States. The platform synthesizes breweries’ production, inventory, sales, and accounting in one easy-to-use solution. Plus, Ekos integrates with point-of-sale, accounting, and ecommerce systems like Square, QuickBooks, and Shopify to help craft producers every step of the way. 

“I’m excited that Ekos is now part of Bircus Brewing’s unique story,” said Ekos CEO Josh McKinney. “Our software is designed to help makers like Bircus track their operations from grains to glass, and I can’t wait to see how they grow alongside our team.”
