Make travel plans and visit us at the Boston Globe Travel Show!
Thinking of traveling somewhere fun this year? And do you like to drink beer? Come out and do both in the Northeast Craft Beer Pavilion at the Boston Globe Travel Show.
On Saturday February 20th and Sunday February 21st we will be in Boston at the Seaport World Trade Center for the Boston Globe Travel Show.
The show features displays and exhibitors showcasing travel destinations from around the world. It’s kind of a one stop shop for travel inspiration and planning.
Why will we be there? Because there is a beer festival right in the middle of the travel show!
The Northeast Craft Beer Pavilion will feature over 40 different breweries and cideries, each bringing multiple brands of beer and cider.
This will be our third year displaying at this show, which brings interested travelers and industry folks from all over the Northeast to Boston to get inspired for travel this year.
Our Road Team will be there with our display and our famous Wheel of Brew Trivia. We will test your knowledge about the math, science, history, geography, and vocabulary of beer.
Sample Question: What is the oldest brewery in North America?

Since 80% of our guests annually come from out of state, it makes sense for us to be at this show and convince people to come to Maine, visit Portland, and ride the #1 TripAdvisor tour and activity in Portland.
So come visit us in Boston in a couple of weeks and have a lot of fun planning your next adventure while trying some great craft beers.

Oh, and that trivia answer?
If you guessed Yuengling…
D.G. Yuengling & Son was founded in Pottsville, PA in 1829. It is indeed the oldest continuously operating brewery in America. As in the United States. But the question again is What is the oldest brewery in North America?
Answer: Molson Brewery
Established in 1786 in Montreal by John Molson, the Molson Brewery is the oldest brewery in North America and continues to produce beer on the site of the original brewery.
Come see us at the show and learn much more about beer!
