If you're a craft beer lover, you're probably pretty familiar with the beer-ranking smartphone app known as Untappd, but just in case you've been living under a rock, here it is in a nutshell:

Untappd connects beer enthusiasts from across the globe by displaying publicly all the different types of beers they've tried. Users "check in" with whatever beer they're consuming at the moment and their friends can see where they were and what they thought of it. The app is also helpful in tracking down hard-to-find beers that are in high demand, with up-to-the-minute info on stock. Users can also earn "badges" through the app by checking in frequently and showing an affinity for a particular style, like the "Hopped Up" badge for IPA fans.

Untappd recently released data showing what the most "checked in" beer was in each of the 50 states.

So what beer in New York topped the list, with the most check-ins?


New Yorkers apparently love their hops-- Sloop Brewing Co. in Fishkill won bragging rights, as their Juice Bomb IPA was the most checked-in beer in New York State.

The low bitterness and late hopping showcase the citrusy, juicy notes of American hops. A blast of tropical aroma is followed by a resiny and balanced flavor. Juice bomb features all the aspects and nuances of full hop flavor — not just bitterness. An IPA for real hop lovers.

It's important to keep in mind that this study doesn't say that it's "the best" beer in New York, or even the "the most favorite," just that it was the most "checked in."
