Pearl of PandariaThis section concerns content exclusive to the World of Warcraft comics.
It is revealed in Pearl of Pandaria that years ago, Grimbooze was the owner of the family's Thunderbrew Distillery in Kharanos, when who should walk in but , wanting to sample Grimbooze's finest recipe. The two drank many cups of each others' beer, draining many a Thunderbrew keg and Chen's magic Jug of a Thousand Cups, and both declared the other one better. To decide once and for all, they held a large brew taste-testing contest in Dun Morogh that became the origin of Brewfest.
When Chen traveled onward, he left behind his Jug of a Thousand Cups with Grimbooze. In the personal opinion of his grandson , Grimbooze enjoyed the use of the Jug a bit too much, as it caused his move to Westfall and the reason he spoke only in rhymes. He in turn left the Jug behind at home and Daran eventually came in possession of it. When came to see him at Brewfest, Daran passed the Jug on to her saying that not only should the Jug stay in the Stormstout family, but that he didn't want to risk ending up like Grimbooze.
