Tweeting beer

Researchers at the University of Kentucky have been studying the geography of beer in the United States – as represented in social media. By analysing geocoded tweets to determine what beers are discussed on social media, Matt Zook and Ate Poorthuis produced several beer maps of the United States, including the one below.

What would a similar map look like for Ireland? Interesting food for thought on a Friday!
