The Growth of Craft Beer on Google Maps
The BreweryDB's database of craft beers and breweries is a great resource for beer lovers. Google Maps Mania has previously featured the BreweryMap (see below) which is a nice mapped guide to the breweries in the database.
The NC Brewery Timeline is another Google Map that utilises BreweryDB. This map concentrates on displaying North Carolina's craft breweries. The map features an interesting timeline tool that allows the user to see how North Carolina's craft beer industry has grown over the last 30 years.
In the last few years there has been a welcome growth in the number of small, independent microbreweries producing traditional or 'craft' beers. The BreweryMap can help consumers of craft beers find their local breweries.
BreweryMap is a Google Map of BreweryDB's database of over 24,000 beers and 4,600 breweries in the United States. Using the map it is possible to search for breweries by location or by name and even find breweries along the route of a road trip.
