How Breweries Are Using Wristbands

Written by Michele Wheat

Wristbands are a great tool in a brewery’s arsenal. They are versatile, easy to use, customizable, and provide cost-effective branding.  Below are just a few ways that breweries can utilize wristbands.

Now sure what type of wristband would work best for your brewery? Check out our buying guide.

Go Cashless and Increase Revenue

RFID wristbands allow customers to make purchases easily with the flick of their wrists. The wristbands help increase speed of service and the ease of payment encourages consumers to spend more. RFID wristbands can also allow you to monitor samples and encourage social media engagement.

Monitor Samples/ Beer Tastings

Cash tag wristbands are a quick way to determine how many samples someone already enjoyed (and how many they have left). Available in 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, and 10 tab options.

Verify Age

Make life easier on your bartenders or quickly monitor a self-pour station with age-verification wristbands.

Control Access/Admission

For special events such as beer festivals or bottle release parties, wristbands are an easy way to monitor who can join the fun. They can serve as tickets or let you know who already paid admission.  

Recognize VIPs

Instantly spot your VIPs – whether it is the individuals that opted for the premium brewery tour, the birthday party guests, or members of a bachelor/bachelorette party, let your staff and these guests know that they are special.


You made your brewery experience memorable for a reason. Consider selling cloth or silicone souvenir wristbands so your guests remember all the fun they had (and to remind them to come back again).

Brand Recognition

Word of mouth is a great promotional tool but so are wristbands! Guests wearing customized wristbands with your logo around town are an inexpensive billboard, helping generate more business for you.
