Periodic Table of Beer
Someone put in a lot of work in putting this together:
Via Will Hinton, who remarks, “Kudos to you if you have had 30+ of these. FAIL if you have had less than 10.” As best I can reckon, I’ve tried at least 33 of these but I could be off by two or three either way.
Aside from whatever worldiness points there might be in having tasted a wide variety of beers is the fact that there’s a remarkable variation between the types. I thought I hated beer when I thought all beer tasted like the American pilsners that constituted the domestic market twenty years ago and wondered how anyone could drink that swill. But I very much like most wheats, pale ales, and stouts.
