In previous posts, I used Exploratory, the powerful front end for R, to start analyzing beer data from the RateBeer API. This week’s Exploratory newsletter links to my two recent posts, which was really nice to see. Future posts will continue to use Exploratory to dive into the data; it’s a great tool already, and…
Beer Data and Exploratory, Part 2
My previous post looked at how to take data generated by the RateBeer API, and ingest, process, and visualize it using Exploratory, a powerful R-based analytics and data science framework. In this post, I’m going to take a look at data from Bell’s Brewery, one of the two largest in Michigan (Founders is the other),…

For those not familiar with RateBeer.com, it is a major site providing a wealth of information about beers and breweries, powered by a large user community. The API provides a window…
This is a simple test using Michigan breweries that can be found in the BreweryDB API. Eventually, we’ll have more substantial maps using Mapbox and possibly Carto, that will provide a great deal of information about breweries and their specific beers.
