Beer Style Infographic

Hello all,

I've been looking for a good infographic for beer styles and couldn't find one, so I made my own.  All the data is based on averages from the official 2008 BJCP style guides. Formulas for Real Terminal Extract (RTE) were derived from J Viggiano’s article.

The gadget plots three metrics; two as x, y and the third as size.  All three can be changed by simply clicking the name and choosing a new one from the drop-down menu (the "size" variable is on the right hand side).  Mousing over a category highlights styles within the category.  Selecting one or more styles makes the others translucent to to make comparisons easier.
