- Tickets are now on sale for a Harry Potter-inspired beer and cocktail festival coming to Montreal in November.
- Among the offerings will be Boozy Butterbeer, Polyjuice Potion, shots of Unicorn Blood, and Hair Of The Multi-Headed Dog.
The wait is finally over! If you're a Harry Potter fan or just a beer and cocktail fan, then you can finally buy tickets to the Harry Potter-inspired booze festival coming to Montreal this November.
The tickets went on sale today, so the time is nigh to reserve your spot for the November 15 event. Like cities around the world, Montreal loves a good Harry Potter themed anything. From sorcery pop-up schools to escape rooms, if there's a way to profit from the Potter universe it's been done.
And we're not complaining. This adults-only festival takes it one step further (in the right direction) by offering up some of the Wizarding World's best concoctions and adding alcohol like their Boozy Butterbeer, Polyjuice Potion, shots of Unicorn Blood, and Hair Of The Multi-Headed Dog. The latter being one of the best named drinks we've heard in a while.
The Beer, Cider and Cocktail Festival venue has also been announced and will take place at the Rialto Theatre on Avenue du Parc — which is really the ideal Hogwarts backdrop.
And it's not only about the drinks. There will be music by DJ Dobs and the Porter Party Band, wizard-themed food, games, trivia, prizes, a cornhole snitch toss, and photo ops with real-life characters.
Doors open at 6 p.m. and the $49 ticket price includes one free alcoholic drink, samples of food and access to all of the happenings listed above.
You can even take a stroll down the cobblestone Diagon alley to choose your very own wand (or have it choose you as the case may be). Muggles not allowed.
Bring your appetite as some of the food they have in store are bites like Luna Love’s Pudding, Ron Family Sweater Cookies, Cauldron Cakes, and Butterscotch Beer Popcorn. And you can wash it all down with unlimited tastings of Hagrid's craft brews and Dumbledore ciders.
Make sure to dress the part in your favourite Potter costume as there will be a ton of Instagram worthy and magical photo opportunities for even the biggest Potterheads.
Tickets for the Vancouver event sold out quickly, so if you want to get your boozy wizard on in Montreal, you may want to purchase your tickets sooner rather than later.
