Beer family tree

Posted to Network Visualization  |  Tags: , ,  |  Nathan Yau

With Anheuser-Busch InBev rumored to have an interest in acquiring SABMiller and SABMiller trying to acquire Heineken, David Yanofsky for Quartz had a look at the structure of global beer distribution. The companies above, summing to six big beer distributors, accounted for half of the world’s beer sales, by volume.

This is important. And sorry AB InBev, FlowingData county ales isn’t for sale, no matter how many millions of dollars you throw my way. I’m serious. Stop calling me.

See also the network of beer brands and soda pop. And the bourbon family tree. And the much more dispersed wine industry.
