Frozen Butterbeer from Hogs Head. It was busy and hot one day when we were there... tucked into the pub, and no waits. It was also cool. As a bonus, I witnessed the bartender offering to take a photo of a few older ladies who were obviously big Potter fans.

This. I made the mistake of having a butterbeer before riding FJ once. UGH.

Now, I only have it AFTER FJ/DC. And I always go to the Hog's Head.

I agree with the Hogshead being the best place. Both the frozen and the cold are really super-sweet, but I found that the frozen cut down on the sweetness a bit. I couldn't ever drink more than 1/3rd of the cup because I found it to be way too sweet.

Yes! Love butterbeer, frozen is best. I tried the regular in London at the Harry Potter set tour,didnt like it. Also second the suggestioin to try it after the rides. They will also rinse out your mug in hogshead or at 3 broomsticks so your not carrying around a sticky cup all day if you get the refillable mug.

I GREATLY prefer the frozen. As an odd side note, (well, odd to me), my 9 year old who would live on sugar alone if I allowed her to didn't care for either of the butterbeer choices. I ended up finishing my own frozen, and tried her regular but couldn't finish. It was like drinking sugar syrup to me.

Thanks to all who recommended Frozen Butterbeer in the 3 Broomsticks...we had lunch there and had it (wonderful atmosphere) but when we went back another day, we skipped the long line at the Butterbeer "truck" and got in the 3Broomsticks where there was no line! mmmmmm...Butterbeer.....
