Today’s infographic is about The Business Of Beer, and provides “a look into today’s beer industry,” and includes some interesting factoids. It was created by SteadyServ, which is “a mobile, SaaS-based inventory and order management system for the beer industry.”
Today’s infographic is entitled A Glance At St. Patrick’s Day Libations, and while it’s not Saint Patrick’s Day, it is the day in 1922 when Irish independence was recognized (having been declared April 24, 1916). Hey, cut me some slack, I’m filling in holes. It was created by Patrick DePuy for the holiday earlier this year for Prime Social Marketing.
Today’s infographic, since today is the day in 1933 when the 21st Amendment passed, repealing Prohibition, is one I’ve posted before, entitled Prohibition Did What?! It goes in to many of the effects that Prohibition had on the country, none of them particularly positive.
Today’s infographic is an overview of drinking laws in the United States created by Medical Insurance.org, although the website no longer seems to work. To be fair, it appears to be from around 2007, and shows an interesting quartet of U.S. maps illustrating different aspects of alcohol laws followed by a list of control state info and sale hours by state.
Today’s infographic is named after one of my favorite books — Around the World in 80 Drinks. Although the name is a bit of a cheat, because while there are flags from 80 nations on the poster, there are only 75 drinks shown, as some are double up. Of those 75, only 10 are beers, which seems low to me. Also, the Czech Republic is represented by Becherovka, an herbal digestive, rather than a beer. Given that the Czechs drink more beer than any other country, that’s surprising. Curiously, it was created by Wine Investment, and there’s very few wines, too. But visually, it’s pretty cool looking.
Today’s infographic is local to me, and concerns my home county of Sonoma. Entitled Sonoma County Gets Crafty With Beer, it shows how Sonoma has been growing lately in terms of the number of breweries and their overall production. Even though the infographic was created in 2013, two more have actually opened and we now have 20 breweries within our borders. I recently sat on a panel discussion at the Sonoma County Beer, Cider & Spirits Conference, which was put on by the county’s economic development board. We certainly live in a great place for beer.
If you saw my post on Beer Tapping Physics on Monday, NPR did a more in-depth look at the phenomenon based on the press release that started it all. Their piece, Beer-Tapping Physics: Why A Hit To A Bottle Makes A Foam Volcano, goes into much more detail, including a trio of animated gifs.
