Like the project? Splendid, there's more at BeerDiagram.com
My name is Jason, and I'm a graphic designer. This project was created to educate the masses about the countless varieties of one of the world's most popular beverages, beer. This flow chart poster thoroughly dissects the intricate body of beers. Each style of beer has it's own unique story. My intention is to share these stories in a carefully organized "family tree".
This collection recognizes the 16 distinct types of beer, explains their origin and then breaks down even further into nearly 40 more subcategories. Each of the final beer-types is then marked with 3 examples of that beer, as well as an icon depicting the type of glass that the beer is typically served in.

Technology: I will be creating these one-by-one using a professional giclée process. This is the same printing process used by the finest art galleries around the world. I will be using high-quality dye-based ink from Germany. This allows us to produce truly authentic museum quality prints.
Risks and challenges
As with any successful project here on Kickstarter, the main challenge is often keeping up with the demand. I learned a lot about the entire production process during one of my last Kickstarter projects, CityPrints. At this point, I'm pretty confident that I will be able to keep up with the demand while getting everything shipped out on time.
In addition, I've learned a lot about the best way to ship these posters to be sure they arrive in perfect condition. Each project will undoubtedly bring it's own unique challenges. I look forward to working through whatever I run into along the way. It's all a part of the process and if nothing else makes the story a bit more interesting.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
