Here's the good old Grim Guzzler. It looks about the same as ever. <br><br>But wait, what are these fellows in the corner?
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?
Say hello to "the boys." They believe in barking loudly and carrying a big stick. It's probably best to leave them be.
The title's not just for show: He does sell <a href="http://www.wowinsider.com/2008/06/24/season-4-brutal-gladiator-gear-guide/">Brutal Gladiator gear</a>. If the Dark Irons are buying this stuff, we may be in trouble the next time they decide to march on Ironforge.
Here's something interesting over by the stairs. If my eyes don't deceive me, those drums belong to Chief Thunderskins of <a href="http://www.wowwiki.com/Level_80_Elite_Tauren_Chieftain">Level 80 Elite Tauren Chieftain!</a><br><br>Apparently, they haven't had time to redesign the logo yet. I wonder if these roadies know more?
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.
This guy is just as rude as Mizli, but he at least mentions the show time: 8pm every day.
Having grilled the roadies enough, it's time to head upstairs. Here's an interesting fellow who's joined Plugger Spazzring behind the bar.
As it turns out, our new friend works for <a href="http://www.wowinsider.com/2008/06/25/meet-coren-direbrew-dispenser-of-awesome-trinkets-and-brewmaide/">Coren Direbrew.</a><br><br>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.
Have you ever wondered what goes into a good batch of Dark Iron brew? <br><br>Yeah, me neither. But hey, free hooch.
Ok, I know I said I'd take some free booze, but with ingredients like these, maybe I spoke too soon.
Ok, he must be drunk. That can't be a real ingredient, can it?
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.
What's this? It looks like a tankard of our drunken friend's masterpiece. Dare I try it?
<a href="http://www.wowhead.com/?item=38320">Dire Brew, eh?<a> It may not be the most appetizing drink, but with a use effect like that, I can't not drink it. Bottoms up!
Wow. I feel... short. On the plus side, I also look like just another member of <a href="http://www.wowwiki.com/Ragnaros">Ragnaros'</a> fanatical enslaved army. Don't ask where I got it the tankard. I just, uh, <a href="http://www.wowhead.com/?item=18044">found it.</a><br><br>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!
