New York State's Longest-Running Beer Fest is Canceled This Year

New York's biggest, and longest-running craft beer festivals won't be happening in 2024. While new craft beer festivals continue to pop up as frequently as new breweries are opening, one of the most popular beer festivals announced they're taking a year off.


Tap NY began in 1998, and has since grown to become one of the biggest beer festivals in the entire country.

Their website says the event was originally known as the Hudson Valley Beer and Food Festival and was held at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park.

Only two years later, the festival had already grown so fast that they had to move to Hunter Mountain. From there, the festival attracted the best and brightest new breweries from across the state, as the craft beer boom exploded through the new millennium.

Their Facebook post told ticket holders to "direct all questions about 2024 tickets and vendor registration to Bethel Woods Center for the Arts."

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
