- This walk through was originally added in 2013, and has been tested and updated for 2016.
- This walk through covers most, but not all of the quests. For event details in full, see Brew Day.
How to Use the Walk Through
- This walk through is designed to complete most of the quests in an efficient manner. You are not required to complete them in this order.
- If you follow the guide in order (down the page) you should be able to cover many steps for several quests in each zone. For this reason, the steps are listed by the zones you should be in as you progress.
- To make it easy to jump to a section if you had to stop and start again, zones you go to more than once have a number in the section title. For example, Bar of Brell 2 indicates it's your second time entering the Bar of Brell for a round of steps.
- New players may want to see the Notes section (end of the page) for various tips and tricks, like how to sober up if the drunk effects are problematic.

Bar Of Brell Tips/Tricks
- No matter where you enter the Bar of Brell, the exits offered will vary based on your character's alignment (evil/good).
- The ideal Bar of Brell entrance/exit locations will vary by your character's alignment and the steps you are on and can depend on the mounts they have available.
- For example, the New Halas location for the Bar of Brell is further from the docks, but having a flying mount greatly reduces the time it takes to get to/from the docks.
- No matter what alignment your character is, they can enter on the docks of Timorous Deep, which is often very fast.
- Most locations involved in the The Great Brewday Pub Crawl will also have purple shinies for the Brews Across Norrath collection.
- You need to finish the Brews Across Norrath collection in order to start the More Brews is Good Brews collection found in other zones not within this walk through.
There are several ways to get rid of the drunk effects you may have at the end of this quest (or any quest, for that matter):
- If you are actively working on The Great Brewday Pub Crawl you'll have a temporary ability that allows you to sober up, so use it! This ability vanishes after a use, so clear at least one spot on your hotbar so it can be accessed easily.
- Die on purpose, via a duel, jump off a cliff, drown, etc. You can also craft or purchase a tinkered Exothermic Lifestone or Exothermic Manastone as a quick and deadly means to die. When you revive you will no longer be drunk.
- If you have already done other Brew Day quests, visit Balin Copperfoot and buy Wake-up Juice (single use item) or a Pot of Wake-up Juice; the Pot of Wake-up Juice (sold for 5 Beer Tokens creates 10 Wake-up juices when examined so it may be more economical if you get drunk a lot. You may need to zone out of the bar for the Wake-up Juice to take effect after this quest.
- Wait. The effects will fade eventually, so it might be a good time to put on a new pot of real-world coffee.
- NOTE: The provisioner made drink, Hair of the Dog, will NOT sober you up. It just makes you pass out.
