After many months of “When is it coming back?”, Universal Orlando Resort has announced that they will now offer hot Butterbeer at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
Hot butterbeer first appeared at Universal in January, during the resort’s Celebration of Harry Potter event. Many guests were able to sample the beverage for the weekend before it was removed after the event wrapped up.
Hot Butterbeer is a smooth, hot beverage reminiscent of shortbread and butterscotch served year-round with a whipped topping. In The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley, it will be served at Leaky Cauldron, The Hopping Pot, and The Fountain of Fair Fortune. In The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade, it will be available at Three Broomsticks and Hog’s Head Pub.
Since the opening of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade in June 2010, millions of Butterbeers have been sold each year at Universal Orlando. It has quickly become a guest favorite and appears as a popular drink in the Harry Potter books and films.
Hot Butterbeer will be available year-round. The price is $4.99 per cup.
