The New Yorker produces a craft beer interactive map

Here's a useful multi-media tool from the venerable literary magazine the New Yorker. It's an interactive map of the craft beer business and includes all kinds of useful information about this rapidly growing industry and its 2,400-and-counting breweries.The data used for the map are from the Brewers Association.

There's all kinds of useful information here that will make you sound like the know-it-all you deserve to be next time you're ponied up to the bar and you start talking beer -- the largest craft breweries (Sierra Nevada is No. 2), the fastest growing breweries(Sacramento isn't on the list, but wait 'til next year), and a state by state breakdown of production (some folks may brew more beer in their garage than all of Mississippi).

Click here to explore the map.
