The Bountiful Breweries of the United States of AmericaHere is the a brand spankin’ new Pop Chart Lab beer creation! The Bountiful Breweries of The United States of America is surprisingly current (at least as far as Indianapolis is concerned), and features over 2,500 breweries. This would be an awesome tool for planning your next beer tour! At 60″ X 40″, this behemoth is sure to make your friends jealous. Click here to preorder. We last wrote about Pop Chart Lab’s “The Magnificent Multitude of Beer”, which like the rest of their work is incredibly detailed. Check out our previous post on Pop Chart Lab here.

The Magnificent Multitude of Beer

MegaBeer

Pop Chart Lab has created the mother of all beer taxonomy posters! The aptly titled “The Magnificent Multitude of Beer” is incredibly detailed. Each beer style is linked divided into Ale and Lager, then to individual style, an example, and finally the glass it should be served in. Well done! It looks like they took their original “Very Many Varieties of Beer” and continued to add to it. This 60″ x 40″ poster will surely be the envy of your beer enthusiast friends. Check out our previous post on Pop Chart Lab here.

Vintage American Beer Ads

 

In the spirit of our upcoming King of Beers American Lager/Pilsner tasting, I thought it would be cool to post some vintage beer ads from America’s major brewers of this particular style. I love how debonair they make the drinkers of these fine fermented products look! If you have any other vintage ads please share in the comments below.
