As a marketer, I can appreciate a well-done infographic - and this infographic is especially awesome. It organizes the many different styles of beer in an easy-to-understand and consume format. Breaking down the two major styles of beer - ale and lager, and then breaking those down further. It even gives suggestions on iconic and note-worthy styles of beer from that genre. 

I think I'll print this out - twice: one copy laminated to hang on my fridge, and one foldable copy to carry with me in my handbag. 

Take a look below and let us know what you think!

This infographic was created by Ben Gibson and Patrick Mulligan. 

I can't wait to get my hands on some of the beers mentioned here that I haven't tried yet, like the Sam Adams Hallertau Imperial Pilsner, Brooklyn's Monster Ale as a barley wine and Fuller's London Porter as an English porter. 

Have you tried the beers from this infographic - what are your thoughts? Are there any that you'd like to add? Please leave your comments below.
