For those who don't know what beer they might like (or need), I suspect that one of these days somebody will come up with an app to deal with the complexity. This would integrate data about your behavior and tastes, your health and medical data, your recent purchases, the season, time of day, and location ... and from all this data, and probably more, it would render a recommendation on the brew for you.

Then all you'd have to do is find out where to get it. Maybe the app could recommend that also ...

@Ariella, that was along the lines of my point that styles of beer are good for those who know what they are drinking but for those that don't care to learn about methods for making beer tying brand names into the charts makes a lot of sense. Putting some brand names with the data would widen the audience greatly.

Now shifting into one of my loves (BBQ) use a darker beer for your brisket something like Shiner Bock which is getting more available outside Texas and is good for drinking after you've made your mop.  Also if you want more flavor use a thicker mop/baste and if you're BBQing or smoking wait until you're nearing the end of cooking before mopping.

I'm still fairly mystified by the types. The first time I bought beer was in the fall, and that was for a brisket recipe. My family then decided that they don't like Heineken and tht it doesn't provide enough body for the meat. Since then, I've experimented a bit with different beers available for sale in single bottles usually for $1.50 at Trader Joe's. Some are described with some accuracy, but others just have these names that don't signify anything to those of us who are not familiar with these brews.

I enjoy your posts and the ability to take data one step further, on this one though I might have done something like listed some of the most popular beers in each category in the title or on the larger view of the chart I would have pulled data from https://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/style/38 for example and listed it along side of the graph.  That way someone could say "I like X brand of beer" without trying to decipher if it's a Pale Lager or a Pilsner for example.  Most casual beer drinkers probably won't know what style they like but they'll be able to tell you what brands they like.

Robert's blog post got my attention not just because it was about beer, but particularly used Pilsner as an example. Pilsners and lagers are my favorites types of beer.

I liked Robert's visualization redo, and the chart of beer categories with hyperlinks, although I can't say that I would need to have these to hand when I'm ordering up a pint in a pub or restaurant. But they're interesting to study ...

I kind of liked the amber color of the tiny graph boxes in the original graph. My only suggestion would be to use amber instead of red in the improved versions.

Anyway, this whole discussion makes me sorta thirsty ...
