Acrylic drinkware – If you own or manage a bar or tavern, one of the costs you have to consider is drinkware. You will need to invest in a lot of glass, because that is where you will have to serve drinks to customers. As part of the business, you will probably need to constantly replace the supply of glass. Here are some things to consider about purchasing drinkware for a tavern. Assess how much you need. A good rule of thumb is to count the number of seats your bar or area can hold and multiply that number by at least 2-3. This should give you enough time to get your glasses, get them cleaned and dried and has enough circulating in the room for your customers.
Decide what to serve. The type of acrylic drinkware you will offer will determine what kind of glasses you need. Will you serve purely beer, or you will have spirits, such as vodka, whiskey or scotch? Will you serve bottled beer or draft? Will you serve drinks and cocktails? Will you serve wine? If so, will you offer both red and white wine? How is it with soda or other juices?
Have a variety of acrylic drinkware glasses. If you plan to serve your drinks straight from the bottle, then you do not need as many beer mugs. But it’s still a good idea to have beer mugs in stock, especially if you will serve beer from a draft. Have different glasses for red and white wine. If you are going to serve the champagne, you must have champagne flutes. You need water glasses too, although you can use a scotch glass to do double duty. Tumblers can be used for water, juice and soda.
