An Infographic: Because it's St. Patrick's Day

There's probably some specific—maybe historical—reason why St. Patrick's Day is now associated with green beer and large quantities of said drink. But whatever the reason, local pubs, bars and microbreweries are pretty happy with the tradition, as this infographic design from Column Five Media for Intuit shows.

Design, infographic, stpatricks

Aside from being interesting from a local-business point-of-view, this infographic also made me happy because of its lack of leprechaun caricatures and gradient rainbows. I'd be interested to see how many people identity themselves as Irish, as the infographic show, versus how many actually have Irish ancestry.
