The Harry Potter Canon

"'Tell you what,' said Ron, his teeth chattering, 'shall we go for a Butterbeer in the Three Broomsticks?'...Ron came back five minutes later,  carrying three foaming tankards of hot Butterbeer.

'Happy Christmas!' he said happily, raising his tankard. Harry drank deeply. It was the most delicious thing he'd ever tasted and seemed to heat every bit of him from the inside."  - Ron Weasley and Harry Potter (PA10)

" 'Three Butterbeers, please,' said Hermione.

The man reached beneath the counter and pulled up three very dusty, very dirty bottles, which he slammed on the bar." - Hermione Granger (OP16)

" ' when Winky has been very drunk; he has hidden her in the Room of Requirement and he has found antidotes to Butterbeer there, and a nice elf-sized bed to settle her on while she sleeps it off, sir…'" - Dobby (OP18)

Very popular drink, served both hot and cold.

  • Butterbeer is served foaming hot in mugs (PA10) and cold in a bottle (OP16)
  • A bottle of Butterbeer in the Hog's Head costs 2 Sickles each (OP16)
  • After the Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince there was some controversy over Emma Watson's performance post-Butterbeer drinking and whether or not it was strong enough to get you drunk, however there was no evidence in the books that people could get drunk off drinking Butterbeer.
  • House-elves could get drunk off Butterbeer, as Winky often did in Order of the Phoenix. For a house-elf the drink was much stronger and Dobby would take her to the Room of Requirement to find antidotes there. (OP18)
