Beer styles of the world

by Random

I was searching around wikipedia one day and I found a beer style tree.  It was so bad and inaccurate; I swore I needed to create another map.  This is my breakdown of the beer styles of the world.

If I am missing any beers, please let me know.  You are free to distribute this map in its entirety, just give me some credit if you do.  Let me hear your comments, and definitely let me know if I missed any beer styles!

I live in Denver, Colorado. This blog is everything about beer, wine, cider, mead and other spirits.
I am a avid homebrewer and winemaker. I’ve been making my own beer and wine for many years. I started making beer when I was in college (mostly because the drinking age in the United States is 21). My first few beers were horrible. The beers are much better now, and I often supply my neighborhood with free beer! It is a great hobby!
