The subject of this article or section is part of Brewfest, a seasonal event that lasts two weeks. Once the event has run its course, this will no longer be available until next year, but there are no guarantees.

  • Fresh Brewfest Hops
  • Binds when picked up
  • Use: Your mount will be more festive. (1 Min Cooldown)
  • Requires Level 20
  • Requires Brewfest

Fresh Brewfest Hops provides a buff which converts your mount into the Brewfest mount associated with your faction. Duration: 1 hour.


Fresh Brewfest Hops is purchased from the Brewfest Token vendors for a cost of 2 Brewfest Prize Token. These are only available during Brewfest, the Brewfest Tokens required to purchase them disappear when Brewfest ends.


Using a Fresh Brewfest Hops puts a buff on your character which converts your mount into a  [Swift Brewfest Ram] for Alliance characters or  [Great Brewfest Kodo] for Horde characters. The buff is on you, not on the mount; if you switch mounts, the buff is still active. The duration of the buff is one hour.


Use of this item satisfies the achievement  Have Keg, Will Travel if you have riding training. You do not have to have a mount, nor use a mount, nor have a mount actually converted; the achievement procs as soon as you use the hops. This item is the cheapest way to easily proc this achievement.


  • You do not have to have a mount to use this item. The item applies the buff to your character.
  • The conversion of the mount takes a moment. If you summon a mount with the buff active, your mount will appear briefly, then will be replaced by the Brewfest mount.
  • If the buff is already applied when Brewfest ends, it runs its course, it does not terminate prematurely.
  • During the 2009 Brewfest, the buff could only be applied while mounted and would end as soon as you dismounted.
  • Does effect your flying mounts, so you will need to dispel the effects of this item before being able to use your flying mount. (Possible bug/hotfix.)
  • If you have a Brewfest Hops buff active and want to apply a different Brewfest Hops buff, the other faction's mount, for example, the current buff blocks application of the new buff. You must manually turn off the current buff by right clicking it and dispelling it in order to apply the new buff.
