Brewfest is back and it’s time to quaff some of the finest ales from all over Azeroth! The event runs from September 20th to October 6th just outside of Orgrimmar for Horde players or Ironforge for Alliance players.
During Brewfest, you’ll be able to participate in activities to earn Brewfest Prize Tokens that you’ll be able to use to purchase holiday items, including pets and toys! In order to earn yourself the Swift Brewfest Ram or the Great Brewfest Kodo, you’ll need to queue for the Corin Direbrew instance in Group Finder. The first time you complete the instance each day, you’ll earn a Keg-Shaped Treasure Chest. The chest has a small chance of dropping the mount.
“First celebrated by the dwarves, Brewfest now holds appeal among all the races of Azeroth!”
Get ready to crack open a cold one with friends new and old during Brewfest! Sample brews from Azeroth and beyond with representatives from many prominent playable races during the booziest time of year.
