    Brewfest 2022

    Brewfest 2022
    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 Prepatch 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.

    What's New in 2022
    • The loot from Coren Direbrew has a higher item level for max level characters.
    • Several tea cauldrons have been added to the Ember Court. Players can interact with them to drink the tea (Theotar's Taste Tester), increasing friendship gains with guests by up to 300%.


    What's New in 2019


    • The grounds have gotten visual revamps with the allied races getting their own stands as seen below. Both factions also have an outhouse with a line.


    • The barrel of apples has a new model.


    • There is a new event, the Brewfest Chowdown, which is an eating contest.
      • The event begins once 4 people click the stand.
      • You have 3 buttons - one to eat, one to drink, and one to call for more food.
        • Eating fills your bar.
        • Drinking reduces the bar.
        • You have to call for more food after eating 3x.
      • The goal is to be the first to finish 10 plates while trying not to let the bar get to 100 as it makes you choke for a few seconds.
    • A variety of events (other than a Dark Iron attack) can happen such as alementals running rampant or Hozen attacks.
    • Down With The Dark Iron has been removed from the Brewmaster achievement.


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

    Get ready to crack open a cold one with friends new and old during our revamped Brewfest! Sample brews from Azeroth and beyond with representatives from many prominent playable races during the booziest time of year.

    When - September 20–October 6
    Where - Ironforge Entrance (Alliance), Orgrimmar Entrance (Horde)
    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.

    Activities

    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.

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

    That's what they said, yes. A+ reading comprehension!

    Personally, I've got it and I'm glad I did. It's fun riding around the basic ram on my horde characters.

    It's the whole collector thing. I'm not saying I would use it.

    As a recovering alcoholic this event is triggering to me and must be cancelled immediately! Especially since I’ve already completed long strange trip drunk.

    Indeed, while I have it (probably my rarest mount) I wouldn't mind it becoming available again, and also hopefully the unarmored version of the Kodo, to be a little less selfless.

    Put them on Coren's loot table as well and I'd have a reason to run him again.
    But your duty to Azeroth is not yet complete. More is demanded of you... a price the living cannot pay.
