Tips on checking in draft beer

When the beer driver brings an order into your restaurant, train them to stack the delivery outside the cooler. This will prevent them from attempting to short your order by stacking them on top of empty kegs you already have in stock and counting them as new kegs delivered. This can easily be done, because most of the time you will have no idea what you originally had in stock. Another way to avoid this problem is to make sure all empty kegs are removed from the cooler as soon as they are empty. But do keep a count on how many empties you have, because you have deposits on each of them. An employee or a driver can make money on returning them to a liquor store.
