We bought a "pint" of the LeFou Brew the other day. It's... not Butterbeer.

Well, for one thing, Butterbeer didn't almost make me violently sick in the middle of the park...

Typing on a phone is hard.

Can you buy the cool cup with a regular soft drink in it, or is that the only thing they sell there? We love the cup.... but drink sounds gross. After hearing all of you, I am convinced I would hate it.

I think I saw the cup in the gift shop. I might be wrong as we were in and out pretty quick. It was small and crowded in there!

Those cups are sold in various places around the park, with different decals. Sleepy Hollow had the brown ones.

Tavern--"An establisment where alcoholic beverages may be consumed on the premesis"

So those other faux "taverns" are also misnamed

It was ok not as good as butterbeer. Glad that we tried it but probably won't get it again.

Tasted like frozen sparkling cider/juice to me. Liked it but will hold the foam next time.

Heres what the yummy but overly sweet drink looks like for those of you that haven't had it.

I didn't really care for it much. It was okay, but not something I'd pay for again.

Yes, it's the "specialty" drink at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter over at Universal. It's really just butterscotch-sweetened cream soda, but almost everyone I know prefers it over LeFou's Brew. They sell butterbeer in both liquid and frozen, I like the frozen but the regular liquid is far too sweet for me. I do not know why the frozen beverage is less sweet, but it is.

I'll take frozen butter beer over the brew any day!

Exactly how the 5 of us felt after we tried it. But, we had to try it once so we could say we tried it. Nothing, however is as good as a dole whip!

Too sweet for me. Had a few sips and walked over to the nearby restroom to pour the rest out and rinse out my Gaston mug. But I did have it along side a cinnamon roll. Maybe that wasn't the best choice. cinnamon roll was good though. I may give it one more try on a hot day by itself.
