Improvements to Planned packaging and delayed racking release stock control (allow overselling if stock will be available in time)

A great addition would to resolve the following limitation:

We currently have 100 cases of a beer in stock. We have a planned packaging scheduled next week for 400 cases of the same product. We have an order in for the week after that for 300 cases of the same product. This causes the product to show as being oversold by 200 cases NOW, and won’t let us add any to orders this week (or any time before the planned packaging next week), despite the fact the current availability is in fact 100 cases, as the order for 300 cases isn’t scheduled until after the planned packaging run of 400 cases.

Please let us know if this tweak would be helpful to you by using the vote button above.


We’re in a similar situation with some pending release - conditioning casks. We move some to our off site storage or presell some (ideally) but currently can’t do that with how Breww is set up. Definitely a useful feature if it can be worked in.


Hi Matt,
This would be very useful to us as we find ourselves adding orders and removing them to prioritise sooner deliveries which is not ideal!


Yes please to this. We end up putting orders into spreadsheets and calendars to workaround this and we want everything to be in Breww :slightly_smiling_face:

As it works currently, an order placed that’s intended for a future batch (after the next planned packaging) will cause the current batch to go out of stock. If it’s for cans, our web shop then goes out of stock which obviously impacts revenue.


This would be super useful and save a few headaches if this can be done.


We are in a similar situation also.

We have a number of larger bulk orders that are put on well in advance. This is very much the case with lager products which have a long production time. For example between May-August we commonly have a number of larger orders for festivals and special events.

These orders will usually be put on as Pre Orders in Feb-March to help plan our production calander and in total may account for 250+ kegs/casks of our most popular beers. This means that from mid-March right the way through to the end of August all of the “Available Stock” figures in Breww for these products do not accurately reflect what I have available to sell that week. In some cases I might have 28 kegs of a beer in stock in the cold room, but be told I have -98 or more.

I need to manually list and account for all of the pre order stock, subract it from the total ammount of available stock, taking into account open orders going out in the short term.

This also applies to some packaged beer products. It would be great if changes could be made to help manage this. As currently putting on long-term pre orders hinders rather than helps.

We need this resolved quite urgently, as otherwise we are unable to use the “delayed racking releases” and “prevent over-selling” features effectively. Constant workarounds (e.g. releasing stock prematurely) are inelegant, prone to human error, and render the aforementioned features far less useful.


Hi, we also need this resolved urgently due to a lot of the issues above.


We’re new to Breww and have just come up against this issue. I’m surprised this is a feature request, because it’s essentially a non-functioning element of the system. We effectively have physically available stock that Breww won’t allow us to sell, and that’s not right.

It’s not a quirky situation, it’s part of everyday operation. We have stock, we have future production and orders, Breww should know how much we can sell ahead of the restock, and allow us to do that.

It’s a great system, we’re really happy to be on the platform, and the dev team are really responsive. I hope this can get sorted quickly, please.


As a workaround, we were wondering about creating some “pre-sale” products (out of stock automatically substituted by the real product). Create some inventory by a stock adjustment… then zero those stock levels when real stock is available. If we remember. So we can do pre-sales via Sellar. What could possibly go wrong :slight_smile:
