Brew Day is an annual event that tips a hat and a frosty beer stein to Brell Serilis. The in-game festivities start around the beginning of March and run until (or just beyond) the real-world holiday known as St. Patrick's Day. It made its first appearance in 2006.

To check the exact dates, log into the game and click the EQ2 button in the bottom right of your screen and choose Calendar from the list of options that opens. Keep in mind that the start date and end of (most) events is midnight PST, due to the location of the main office of Daybreak.

Check your in-game mail for the announcement and clues about where to go to enjoy this event. See the event announcement at the end of the page if you accidentally delete that mail.

Note: There is a Brew Day/Walk Through page that helps you do these quests with less fussy traveling. Some quests get harder as you get drunker, it's advisable to read up first.

Canceling Drunk EffectsEdit

Many of the quests require your character to consume alcoholic drinks that cause a screen blur that is supposed to mimic drunkenness; for some players this presents a problem as it can cause headaches.

  • To cancel the drunk effects please see Getting Sober.
  • Note: The more you drink and gain "skill" in this, the greater your character's alcohol tolerance.

Currency and Special Crafting MaterialsEdit

To check the amount of event currency you have on hand, press C to open the Character window and click on the Currency tab.

Tradeskill RecipesEdit

No matter which tradeskill you begin or master, any crafter can make the items in the recipe books.

  • See the Brew Day Merchant Items for a list of recipes.
  • You will also need a variety of harvestables from Bountiful Brewday Garden bushes in specific zones that you can only gather during the event. See the 'Special Crafting Materials section below for more details.
  • Unlike Frostfell, which requires special crafting stations, you can make these items all year if you stock up holiday themed materials.
  • Like most holiday-themed live events, the recipes are primarily items for use in player housing.


Example: many crafted items have a pub theme, like the Maj'Dul Ale Rack shown here.

Flowered Green Curtain Left

Example: Flowered Green Curtain (Left) house item.


Example: Frothy Tankard (weapon).

Special Crafting MaterialsEdit

In order to craft items from the holiday-themed recipes, you must gather materials from Bountiful Brewday Garden, a shrub with a green particle effect.

  • The Bountiful Brewday Garden shrubs are found randomly throughout zones (and along riverbanks) where you enter/exit the Bar of Brell. See the Event Hub and Merchant section above for locations.
  • Unlike other special seasonal materials, you can only see the Bountiful Brewday Garden shrubs if you complete the quest and equip the Improved Ale Goggles.
  • The harvests from these nodes are tradeable, so check the broker if you need to stock up.
  • If you have completed the Gathering Obsession Timeline and have the Artisan's Fully Trained Pack Pony, it can be sent out to get the holiday-themed materials for you too.

Adventure QuestsEdit


An example of a quest reward (Brew Day Cloak) from the Brew Day live event, held in the first week of March each year.

If questing on a brand new, low-level character focus on Ale Goggles, followed by Valla Brewhammer's Special Brew; it rewards a ground mount that makes completing all other quests much easier.
