Do beer bags work?

They definitely do, we asked our friends Wined up here what they think – here’s their response!

Wined up case study



“We bought 50 jute beer bag in December and offered them free when people bought 6 beers, so if anyone came to the counter with 3 or 4 beers we mentioned the free bag and it was a “no-brainer” for people to up their purchase to 6 beers. They went away very happy, as it made a great gift if they were not keeping the beer for themselves! We sold out of the bags and bought some more in January and the trick still works!
I trebled my beer sales in December compared to December 2013 and doubled my beer sales in December’14 compared to November’14. Yes, craft beer sales are on the rise anyway but by “adding value” it ensures we are riding the crest of the wave and the jute bags are a natural tie in! “
