The annual Boston Globe Travel Show takes place this year Feb. 9 and Feb. 10 at the Seaport World Trade Center. A new feature this year is the New England Craft Beer Pavilion, which lets patrons sample from a selection of 50 beers from more than 20 craft breweries.
There will be three 2 1/2 hour beer sampling sessions:
Sat. Feb. 9: Noon to 2:30 p.m.
Sat. Feb. 9: 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Sun. Feb. 10: 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Tickets for the event can be purchased in advance for $25 and at the door for $35. Tickets for the beer tasting are separate but will also get you into the travel show. One dollar of each ticket sold will benefit Great Boston Food Bank.
Standout breweries that have committed to the event so far include Smuttynose, Baxter Brewing Co., Backlash, and The Shed.
