6 Butterbeer Items You Need To Try At The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Even if you haven’t read the Harry Potter series, you’d definitely heard of butterbeer. It’s the popular wizarding beverage created by J.K. Rowling and you can try it in real life at Universal Studio’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter!

Sipping on chilled butterbeer at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is essential for the ultimate Harry Potter experience but did you know there are actually 6 different ways to enjoy butterbeer?

 

Butter beer

1. COLD BUTTERBEER

Let’s start with the classic cold butterbeer – sweet and carbonated with a frothy finish. To me, it tastes like creme soda! Dangerously addicting… You can even order it in a take-home souvenir cup.

WHERE TO FIND IT: Outdoor carts in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, The Three Broomsticks restaurant, and Hog’s Head Pub.

2. FROZEN BUTTERBEER

If you’re visiting Universal Studios during the summer when the humidity is 100%, frozen butterbeer is a life saver. If you like slushies, you’ll love frozen butterbeer.

WHERE TO FIND IT: Outdoor carts in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, The Three Broomsticks restaurant, and Hog’s Head Pub.

 

3. HOT BUTTERBEER

Not all the butterbeer stands sell hot butterbeer but you can find it at the Three Broomsticks restaurant. It’s a comforting, warm cup of caramel goodness!

WHERE TO FIND IT: Three Broomsticks restaurant

 

Butter beer ice cream

4. BUTTERBEER SOFT SERVE

You have to try butterbeer soft serve at Florean Fortescue’s Ice Cream Parlour in Diagon Alley™. It’s a vanilla soft serve base with swirls of butterscotch and toffee (left cone). The hardest decision you’ll have to make it if you want in a cup, waffle cone or souvenir glass.

WHERE TO FIND IT: Florean Fortescue’s Ice Cream Parlour

5. BUTTERBEER POTTED CREAM

Butterbeer potted cream is my second favorite form of butterbeer. It’s silky and smooth with a butterscotch flavor that’s not cloyingly sweet. The pudding is served cold in a glass jar at Leaky Cauldron that you can take with you.

WHERE TO FIND IT: Leaky Cauldron

 

Butter beer fudge

6. BUTTERBEER FUDGE

Butterbeer even comes in fudge form that’s perfect to take a little butterbeer back home! You can find butterbeer fudge at the Hogsmeade sweet shop in Hogsmeade.

WHERE TO FIND IT: Honeydukes
