Default Brew Calendar

I once saw a great calendar of what styles fit in what season and what to brew when (IE Brew Bock in Feb drink in April, etc)

Does anyone have something like this floating around and can you post it? Thanks!

I have been playing with this.. threw it into a spreadsheet.
It seems like it would be interesting to maybe create (if it doesn't exist) an informational spreadsheet with the basic types as listed above, their seasons as listed above... and then maybe adding typical hops, yeast strains, etc. that are found in those sorts of beers. I would find this very handy.
Anyone else interested in a project like this? Shouldnt' be too hard. As a noobish brewer I'd appreciate that on hand.
Unless of course it already exists somewhere.

I can format it with the dates, etc.
Then potentially use Wyeast's booklet or something like that to try and pull in the yeast strains. Would be a cool work in progress I think.
I'll get working on it.
Anyone that has some input let me know.
I don't know much when it comes to yeasts and Hops.

What I envision is columns like this:

Type Description Brew Drink Yeast Strains Typical Grains Typical Hops

That would be really handy to me as a newer brewer that is starting to craft his own recipes.

I'm seeing more of a calendar, incorporating the styles of beer based on the time of year and then listing typical ingredients for that specific style...

Love the idea and I'd be happy to contribute
