With brewery manufacturing software as a single source of truth for your business, brewery management and beer production is simpler

Brewery owners operate in an incredibly competitive market, competing amongst smaller craft breweries and major beer producers daily. This is where software designed to make daily life in a brewing company easier can be a major advantage. And that’s what we believe Katana can be.

Katana is a manufacturing ERP, that can easily serve as a brewery ERP, to help you craft beverages on a growing scale, manage your recipes, help clarify production decisions, and keep finances in a healthy shape.

Work on your brewing process and never run low on raw ingredients

When working with consumable goods, your production process has a lot of moving parts you need to factor in. You’ll need to use batch tracking for both raw materials and packaged products to make sure nothing nears its expiry date, and you also need to ensure your recipe management is perfectly defined, so product taste and consistency never change.

Katana offers you all the features to refine and automate your brewery operations and beverage manufacturing, helping you set automated reorder points for important raw materials, write detailed bills of materials which can include notes about production, and remotely manage your warehouse team so packing and shipping is done without you needing to be in the building.
