A method is provided for determining the amount of alcoholic beverage, or other liquids or solids, dispensed, from a container, during a specific time interval which method includes the steps of sensing a first weight of said container including the contents thereof at a first given time, converting said first sensed weight into a corresponding first electrical signal, sensing a second weight of said container including the contents thereof at a second given time, converting said second sensed weight into a corresponding second electrical signal, comparing said first and second electrical signals, converting said first and second signals into a differential signal and converting said differential signal into a useful format indicating the comparative first and second weights of said container and the contents thereof.An apparatus is also provided for carrying out the above method, which apparatus includes container support means, weight sensing means responsive to the weight of said container and the material in said container, transducer means for converting weight sensed by said weight sensing means during first and second points in time into at least first and second electrical signals, and conversion means such as a central computer facility, for converting said electrical signals into a useful format relating to the weight of material in said container during said first and second points in time.
