It's no secret that Australians are always up for a bit of magical fun and frivolity, with Harry Potter-themed events and pop-ups a pretty regular occurrence these days, like the muggle that transfigured a Great Hall for brunch, a huge Harry Potter store, two-day movie marathons and boozy Wizard's Cauldron potions classes.

Next on your Hogwarts timetable is the Wizard's Beer Festival, where you'll sip brews in a wizarding wonderland, while making your way between wand-making classes, DJs and tarot card readers. There's no word yet on exactly what beers you'll be drinking — local numbers? international favourites? alcoholic butterbeer? — but your ticket does include a 12-ounce (355-millilitre) brew on entry, and five tokens you can use on beers and the aforementioned activities.

Previously slated to run in March, you can now mark the date down in your calendar as Sunday, June 14, when the magical beer fest will apparate into a soon-to-be-announced Brisbane location.

Folks in costumes pretending to be Hermione, Dumbledore and others isn't really our idea of a magical HP experience, but perhaps a few boozy butterbeers will get you in the right mood. And if not, you can organise a trip to see the Cursed Child stage show in Melbourne, if you haven't already.

Ticket prices are yet to be confirmed, but you can register to be notified when they go on sale here.
