Beer Style Chart

I saw this article online and thought it's worth sharing.   Ben Gibson and Patrick Mulligan designed a chart that shows the many different varieties of beer as well as a few commercial brand names for each.  

I like this chart because it helps me to understand how various beer styles are related to each other.   However, it did raise a few questions.  Some of the styles (Cream Ale and Baltic Porter, for example) are listed as both Ales and Lagers.  I guess that means you can brew them using either Ale or Lager yeasts.

Anyway, if you like this, you can buy a poster for $25.  What do you think of this chart?

  1. Looks like the org chart at my work :) but sure gives you the "geneology" of beer. Very informative.


Thoughts? Tell me what you think.
