World of Warcraft: It’s Time For Brewfest!

Brewfest was introduced to World of Warcraft™ in 2008. This world event is based on the Bavarian Oktoberfest celebration and runs from September 20th through October 6th. The main locations for the festivities are camps just outside of Orgrimmar for Horde players and Iron Forge for the Alliance side. Beer gardens are set up outside of all major cities (Silvermoon City, Darnassus, Undercity, Stormwind City, Thunder Bluff, and Shattrath).

There is a lot going on during this event! There are one-time quests, daily quests, achievements to get, and a boss to defeat. And, of course, all the beer you can drink!

So let’s take a look at what there is to be had.


Kodo Mount

The Great Brewfest Kodo is a mount reward that can drop in the Keg-Shaped Treasure Chest after killing Coren Direbrew. It’s available to both Horde and Alliance, but it has a low drop-rate.


Coren also has a chance to drop the Swift Brewfest Ram in the Keg-Shaped Treasure Chest. Again, this has a low rate of dropping. However, this mount is also sold by vendors so if you get tired of waiting for the boss to give it up you can always purchase it. If you are Horde, see Driz Tumblequick in Durotar. For the Alliance side, your vendor is Pol Amberstill in Dun Morogh.


The Brewfest Ram is sold by vendors. Driz Tumblequick is set up in Durotar and Pol Amberstill is located in Dun Morogh. It requires level 20 to be able to ride.



There is a toy that is available for purchase during Brewfest. The Brewfest Keg Pony is a great addition to any toybox! Driz and Pol offer him for sale for 200 gold.



There are 2 companion pets that you can get during the holiday event.


The Wolpertinger is a quest reward. He’s adorable!


Then there’s the Stout Alemental.



World of Warcraft is full of achievements and Brewfest is no exception! There are tons of points to be obtained and even a title. Let’s take a look at each achievement and what you have to do to get it.


For this task all you have to do is que up in the group finder and defeat Coren Direbrew.
