Thanks to Rock Star Beer Festivals, fans of age now have the chance to attend a festival created just for them.

The festival is inspired by the popular fantasy franchise that has captivated wannabe witches and wizards of all ages around the world in the past few decades. Tickets cost $35 per person.

There are many different versions of the drink, though. Check out the Butterbeer recipes closest to what you’d find in Hogsmeade. And if you’re lucky enough to snag tickets to one of these events, enjoy a drink on our behalf. Have fun!
