Today’s infographic shows how much people are drinking around the world, along with how much brewers are making to satisfy that demand. Global Beer Production and Consumption also shows distribution of alcohol by continent.
The Brewers Association just released the number of breweries in the U.S. as of the end of last year. As of December 31, 2012, there were 2,336, which represents an increase of 387 over the previous year, meaning just over one new brewery opened every single day. Just as staggering; the total number of breweries-in-planning stood at 1,254.
Today’s infographic is a fairly narrow one, in terms of its scope. It tackles beer in Slovakia. And although Slovak Beer uses a limited color palette, it still manages to communicate the information quite elegantly. I’d like to see one of these for every country.
