Whenever I drink craft beer, I try my best to remember to log it into Untappd. Untappd is an app that lets you rate beer and also see how the rest of the public has rated it.
Through becoming a supporter of the app, they let you download all of your data. This includes fields such as the brewery name and location, the style, and even the location you checked it in at if you chose to do so.
I thought it would be cool to create a little visualization of all the beers I've checked into Untappd so I can see what my favorite brews were by location, style, etc.
I tried to make the dashboard interactive by placing a number of filters at the top. You can sift through the different styles, states where the beer was brewed, and ratings I've given. The map shows the locations of all of the different breweries I have drank from. The size of the circle is how many beers I've had from that brewery, with the color being the average rating across all of those beers. Finally, at the bottom, the chart is sorted by breweries with the highest average rating across all of their beers I've tried. If you click on a brewery, it will highlight its location on the map.
Check out this post to see how I made the visualization above!
If you have any questions or comments about the visualization, feel free to post a comment below. Thanks for reading!
