Brewfest is Blizzard's way of celebrating the Oktoberfest holiday celebrated in the real world, which was introduced shortly after the Burning Crusade was released in 2007.
While there was no official announcement from Blizzard, the Dark Iron Dwarfs have been busy setting up the event outside of Ironforge and Orgrimmar, and the event has begun.
Players can partake in fun minigames, earn a unique currency and even form a group to take on Coren Direbrew, a 5-man mini-boss who has a chance to award special trinkets and even two new mounts.

The Brewfest Ram and Brewfest Kodo are the two mounts available but will be a very rare drop chance, and players only have 14 tries for the year to obtain them.
There are six new trinkets that have a chance to drop from Coren Direbrew:
- Empty Mug of Direbrew

- Sirebrew Hops
- Brightbrew Charm
- Coren's Lucky Charm
- Balebrew Charm
There is also a chance to receive a Dagger and a special toy that teleports the player and their party to the Grim Guzzler.
More Brewfest cosmetic items are available at the Brewfest grounds outside Ironforge and Orgrimmar which can be redeemed by Brewfest Prize Tokens.
