TidyX 33: Beer, Web Scraping, and State Maps

This week, Ellis Hughes and I discuss a TidyTuesday submission from Richard Bamattre. Richard visualized craft beers by state using the {statebins} package. This approach produces a very clean method of displaying data across the USA.

We follow up our discussion of Richard’s R code by giving a short web scraping tutorial to acquire more data about beer production across the USA and then create our own state map visualization.
