A couple of months ago, we were introduced to Chris at Mesa Liquor. He and his cousin have been offering one of THE most extensive collections of beers for sale in San Diego for a long time. The challenge was not many people knew this unless you visited the store. Enter, stage left – the beer loving staff at BinaryM.
After a little work customizing our base BinaryM WordPress theme, we got to work on the big item for this project, how to display inventory for the store but in a system that was easy for Mesa to manage. Using the infrastructure of Custom Post types in WordPress and we plugin that allows for beers to be added, inventory modified and removed with ease. The next thing we did was create a simple form using Gravity Forms, so that customers could tell Mesa what they like and what they should stock. When combined, these two tools allow for Mesa to have an accurate inventory presented to online visitors and an easy way to keep the shelves stocked with what they want.
If you love beer and live in San Diego, we suggest you pay the San Diego Beer Store a visit.
