Grab your broomstick, robe and best goblet. Harry Potter's favorite bars and beers are coming to Austin.
A Harry Potter-themed beer festival is happening in May, and it's promising a magical experience. The Wizards and Witches Beer Festival will have tastings of 20 different beers, as well as themed bars, including the Lair of Secret Cider Potions, Wizards Alley and Adult Butterscotch Beer Tavern. The Sorceress Sisters and DJ DumbleD are soundtracking the event with some wizardly tunes, so it's basically like the Yule Ball but without the underlying drama and deadly tournament going on.
The traveling festival is also making stops in New Orleans, Indianapolis and Louisville, Kentucky. Rock Star Beer Festivals, which puts on the Wizards and Witches Beer Festival, also hosts "Game of Thrones" and "Alice in Wonderland" themed shindigs.
The Wizards and Witches Beer Festival will be at Fair Market (1100 E. Fifth St.) on May 11. Tickets are on sale now for the 21+ event for $39.
