- Entering the Grim Guzzler
Here's the good old Grim Guzzler. It looks about the same as ever.
But wait, what are these fellows in the corner?
- The newest Arena Vendor
What's this? It's an Arena vendor! What's he doing down here? Do the Dark Iron Dwarves play Arena too, or did he just decide to stop in and have a brew?
- Slobbermouth and Snaggletooth
Say hello to "the boys." They believe in barking loudly and carrying a big stick. It's probably best to leave them be.
- Brutal Gladiator gear for sale
The title's not just for show: He does sell Brutal Gladiator gear. If the Dark Irons are buying this stuff, we may be in trouble the next time they decide to march on Ironforge.
- Level 80 ETC seems to be on tour again
Here's something interesting over by the stairs. If my eyes don't deceive me, those drums belong to Chief Thunderskins of Level 80 Elite Tauren Chieftain!
Apparently, they haven't had time to redesign the logo yet. I wonder if these roadies know more?
- Mizli Crankwheel
The roadies seem a little rude, but Mizli does confirm that she was hired by Roitau and Schweitzer -- those are L80ETC's head roadie and manager, respectively.
- Ognip Blastbolt
This guy is just as rude as Mizli, but he at least mentions the show time: 8pm every day.
- Meet the Dark Iron Brewmaster
Having grilled the roadies enough, it's time to head upstairs. Here's an interesting fellow who's joined Plugger Spazzring behind the bar.
- Coren Direbrew's apprentice
As it turns out, our new friend works for Coren Direbrew.
You may remember him as the Dark Iron Dwarves' head brewmaster. He only shows up during the Brewfest. This year, we'll be able to beat him up and take his stuff when he does.
- Garlic Breath
Have you ever wondered what goes into a good batch of Dark Iron brew?
Yeah, me neither. But hey, free hooch.
- Scorpid venom -- You add that after the hops and barley, right?
Ok, I know I said I'd take some free booze, but with ingredients like these, maybe I spoke too soon.
- Yesterday's Socks: The ultimate flavor enhancer!
Ok, he must be drunk. That can't be a real ingredient, can it?
- The Dark Iron Brewer drifts into a drunken sleep
Well, as amusing as a dwarven brewer who can't hold his drink is, I'm just glad he dozed off. I don't think I want to know what he would have added next.
- The finished brew
What's this? It looks like a tankard of our drunken friend's masterpiece. Dare I try it?
- Dire Brew
- Dire Brew's effect
Wow. I feel... short. On the plus side, I also look like just another member of Ragnaros' fanatical enslaved army. Don't ask where I got it the tankard. I just, uh, found it.
For the record, while the Direbrew itself is unique, you can pick up an extra one once you've used the first. Be sure to grab one for the road before you head out!
