EverQuest IIÂs Brewday 2010 is in game now through March 22nd. Get in on the fun by visiting your local portal into the Bar of Brell. These portals can be found in Antonica near the North Qeynos gate, in the Commonlands near the gate to West Freeport, in Greater Faydark next to the stables, and in Gorowyn at the docks.
YouÂll find several quests inside the Bar of Brell plus you can get a quest from the Avatar of Below that roams in Antonica this time of year.
Quests are available even if youÂve completed them in previous years. New rewards are offered, some useful, some fun, and some just to pretty up your house. Get in game this week and check it out and have some fun!
[protip]Plan ahead! Many of these quests take you into the same zones. Pick up all of them at the same time and complete them all before you turn them in. It will save tons of time if you coordinate your efforts. Also remember to check the locations for the collection quest so you don't forget to gather those while you are out and about.[/protip]
Valla Brewhammer's Special Brew
Valla poses the riddle ÂThrough the eyes of ale you see it. With your hands you pick it. It is wild, noble, golden, emerald, and godly.Â Nope, she is not talking about your boogers ya sickos. She is referring to the harvests of the bountiful Brewday garden shrubs found around the newbie zones (Antonica, Commonlands, Greater Faydark, Darklight Woods, and Timorous Deep). These sparklie green shrubs will yield the following items which you need to collect all of:
- Brell barley
- noble hops
- golden grapes
- wild yeast
- emerald clovers (a rare drop)
Get this pimp temporary mount to celebrate the season
Return all of these items to Valla to receive the Carpet of Clover, a temporary carpet mount that lasts for one day and offers a 35% speed increase.

The second three can be found inside the Bar of Brell, Somborn Village, market in MajÂdul, and at the bar in the Moors of Ykesha,
The final three can be found on the Butcherblock docks, at the Blackburrow Brewery, Thundering Steppes Docks, and in Windstalker Village.
