If you love beer then you'll probably love this beer drinking scratch off that allows you to keep track of the brews you've sipped. The scratch off poster, by Pop Chart Labs, will set you back $35 — and the cost of 99 craft beers, if of course, your aim is to drink them all. But hey, it's all in the name of hoppy deliciousness, so your bank account probably won't mind. The scratch off chart includes the "bucket list of essential beverages", if what's on your bucket list is beer. The chart has different brews sorted into categories and subcategories, which allows you also to see the different "families" of beers, and where your favorite fits in. If you like an IPA, for example, this is a great way to see what else you should be trying (or you could just ask the bartender).
The poster chart also includes different beer brands, craft brews, and obscure beers for real aficionados. This chart, obviously, is for people who really, really, really love beer. All beer. If you're not a beer lover, however, Pop Chart Lab's suggests you can enjoy the poster without ever scratching off a beer conquest. "Simply enjoy the print untouched as an eye-catching, gilded piece of infographic art — it looks beautiful either way!" proclaims their site. Proof:
Here's how it looks framed against some trendy exposed brick:
And here's how the beer bottles disappear when you scratch them off:

4. Scratch And Sniff Wine Book
So this one isn't a poster and it's not so much about scratching things off to show where you've done, but rather, scratching in the name of learning to be a better consumer of wine. That sounds alright by me.
