I think you have to go to Diagon Alley to get it. LOL

I also have not tasted it. I don't even know if we have it here in my country.

I bought some from Amazon and it was actually really close to what they have in Universal. It's not the same thing, but I still think it was great.

It's on my list to try Butter Beer one day and I have low expectations so I'm thinking you can't go wrong then =)

I got to try it last summer on my trip. I'd hoped it would be good but I wasn't prepared for just how good it was. I was surprised that it was actually an alcoholic beverage too. I can't stand regular beer so I'm still shocked.

You can get butter beer? Wow. Haven't seen it around here. On my wish list - on the never never ever wish list - is a trip to Disney World or is it Disney Land (one of those) where you visit Harry Potter's world and drop in to Hogsmeade for a tankard of butter beer. Total bliss, I understand. I think you need snow too for the full effect. Otherwise is it heated beer with butter stirred in, something like gluwein?

I haven't tried it yet: I've never been to Universal Studios nor is it available in my local stores. I've seen a few recipes for how to order something similar at Starbucks, but the only one sort of near me is too out of the way for me to go very often plus the price is so high for add ons.

Are there adult and kid versions available in the parks?

There is this Harry Potter themed cafe in the Philippines I once visited called The Nook. They serve Butterbeer for two sizes: Harry's size and Hagrid's size. I didn't have an exact expectation for the taste but it was sooo good for me.
