Brewfest is back again with item level 395 trinkets! 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.
If you are still leveling alts, don’t forget to grab the Brewfest Enthusiast buff at 6:15 AM and 6:15 PM PDT outside of Ironforge and Orgrimmar at the Tapping of the Keg ceremony.

- 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 loot from Coren Direbrew is item level 395 for max level characters.
