Beer lovers are notoriously loyal to their favorite brews. Just think back to the social media frenzy following Budweiser’s attack on craft beer during this year’s Super Bowl. But just how much do our favorites vary by location?

A new interactive map from the digital cartographers at Floating Sheep charts the pattern by tracking beer-related tweets from across the country. The map allows you to select from a menu of major beer brands from Bud, Pabst, Sam Adams, and Dogfish to types of beer like lager and Belgian ale and compare them to one another by location.
