A Harry Potter-Themed Beer Festival Is Coming To The USA

If you're old enough to drink but haven't actually grown up yet, then we have some exciting news - a Harry Potter-themed beer festival is on its way to a handful of places in the USA.

But what exactly does a Harry Potter beer festival entail?

Well, there will of course be plenty of the wizards' favourite tipple, butterbeer, knocking about. More importantly, the magical beverages will be alcoholic.

But if you aren't into beers of the buttery variety, there will be 20 additional varieties of beers on offer, including winter, pumpkin, and holiday ales.

Naturally, the venues will be designed to look like iconic settings from the novels/films, such as the Leaky Cauldron, Diagon Alley, and Hogwarts' Great Hall, according to Insider.

The series of events are being put on by Rock Star Beer Festivals and there will be live music from the 'Slytherin Sisters' and 'DJ Dumbledore' at the festival in Portland, Oregon.
