Methodology Behind the Report
Overproof’s leading menu analysis technology uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to read and extract insights from beverage menus at scale. Our proprietary algorithms scan digital and physical menus to understand their composition and capture cocktails, branded beers, wines, spirits and non-alcoholic beverages, product categories and subcategories, price point, promotional indicators, sponsorship indicators, cocktail styles and cocktail families. In a matter of seconds, Overproof identifies the brands, products, suppliers, distributors and recipes on each menu.
Overproof’s menu database includes more than 1 million venues with coverage across the U.S. This report includes 200 venues in 10 markets. Some markets will include surrounding areas. A complete list of counties and venues included can be found at the end of the report.
Venues were filtered to include only those which have branded products listed on the menu. Major chain groups were not included. From the list of qualified venues in each market, the 200 with the most branded products listed were chosen. The majority of venues will have more than one menu (happy hour, dinner, etc.), and all menus for a particular venue are considered in the dataset.
