Brewfest 2023
Brewfest is back again! This year the event runs from September 20 to October 6. As with many of the holiday events, this one was changed to allow you to queue at a lower level. The event is also active in Wrath of the Lich King Classic as the level 70 version.

If you are still leveling alts, don't forget to grab the Brewfest Enthusiast buff at 6 AM and 6 PM PDT outside of Ironforge and Orgrimmar at the Tapping of the Keg ceremony.

Brewfest Kegs Are Tapped and Festivities are in Full Swing! September 20–October 6

Do you love eating delicious food, drinking bountiful beverages, and riding rams around barrels of apples? Brewfest has arrived, and you can do all that and more from 20 September–6 October.

When - September 20–October 6
Where - Ironforge Entrance (Alliance), Orgrimmar Entrance (Horde), Valdrakken
Currency - Brewfest Prize Tokens

Completing quests and activities on the Brewfest grounds will generally reward you with Brewfest Prize Tokens. These are used to purchase most of the items you will find on sale at Brewfest.

New in Dragonflight

Brewfest comes to Dragonflight! Strike up a conversation with the Holiday Enthusiast in Valdrakken to begin the brewfestivities. In addition to enjoying the usual fun in Ironforge and Orgimmar, new Brewfest quests can be completed throughout the Dragon Isles, including one that will have you showcasing your skills in Dragonriding.

And what's Brewfest without some stout rewards? New items can be found on the vendor—the Orange Brewfest Bulwark shield customization, and get a safe ride home with the Brew Barrel toy.


New in Dragonflight

Collect Brewfest tokens by visiting all 12 taverns (three per zone). And for those high achievers, get the "A Round on the House" achievement when you pay homage to all 12 locations.

Barreling Down

Keep your wits because you'll have to roll barrels through Valdrakken and deliver them to the Artisan's Market.

Bubbling Brews

Test your skills in Dragonriding and take to the skies above the Artisan's Market in Valdrakken to collect bubbles to fill a barrel.

Brewfest Chowdown
Slurp and burp your way through this eating contest to be crowned the Chowdown Champion. Compete with three other players in front of a panel of spectators to prove your prowess but try not to choke (literally)! The first to finish 10 plates of sausages takes home the prize. Manners optional. Speak with Etga (Horde) or Britta Steinhart (Alliance) to participate. Prize: 1 Brewfest Chowdown Champion Token.

Timed Events
Every half hour a group of alementals, hozen, or Dark Iron dwarves will show up to destroy the Brewfest grounds. Put a stop to their shenanigans for a reward once a day.

Chug ‘n Chuck Alementals
Throw nearby taster mugs at these destructive alementals to put a cork in their plans.

Shoo Pesky Hozen
Unruly hozen want to monkey around—restore order by driving away these pests.

Tip: Some of these buggers are winged, so saddle up on a flying mount to reach them!

Ceremonial Keg Tapping
Join the Draenor-famous Frostwolf brewery Warband Ales for a special toast during Brewfest at 6 a.m. or 6 p.m. server time. Alliance players can do the same with the Thunderbrew and Barleybrew breweries.

Daily Quests
Complete special daily quests to obtain experience, gold, and Brewfest Prize Tokens to purchase holiday items.

Sample Fine Food and Brew
Stumble your way through the grounds while trying specialty food and brew from all over Azeroth and Draenor.

    People on EU saying the epic keg box only drops for 70s.

    Also, what mount bloat? There's only the two mounts available from the Magic Boxes. Doesn't even put the Non-Epic Brewfest Ram on there.

    Literally says so in this post that it's 70 only. Has any reason been given?
