Progression Server Brewing Guide (PoP)
Brewing is a fairly easy tradeskill to raise in EQ, at first at least. You can take the skill almost all the way up to 200 just by vendor purchased items. Also for all those worrying, Brewing isn't only for making alcohol, you can also make other goodies used in different Tradeskills as well as drink which has stats on it, such as Qeynos Afternoon Tea. Also before going any further, as with every other tradeskill, make sure to visit your trainer and put train the first 21 points using your available practices'.
Brewing 1 - 21
Train the at your trainer.
(Direct Route) Jumjum Spiced Beer 1 - 150
Save the Jumjum Spiced Beer if you are also going to level Baking for Misty Thicket Picnics. If not just vendor them. This is honestly the best and most direct route possible, you'll need to make a halfling but it's non stop all the way to 150, no subcombines, no foraged crap all vendor bought, all cheap. Need I say more?
(Direct Route) Minotaur Hero's Brew 150 - 248
There are a few different things you can do with Brewing to go from 150 - 250 however Minotaur Hero's Brew is the most straight forward route with the least amount of farming. Thus, this guide primarily features it. If you'd like to see what other options are available check out my Classic Brewing Guide for more ideas.
Short Beer x2
(Direct Route) Kaladim Constitutional 240 - 300
This is probably the best thing you can make from 240 - 335 when it Trivials. Kaladim Constitutionals are in high demand as Stat Drinks considering they're so cheap and aren't nearly as much of a pain in the ass to make as Qeynos Afternoon Teas. So, luckily, any of these you do make if you don't use them you'll definitely be able to sell them.
(Direct Route) Brut Champagne 240 - 335
This is a secondary route instead of having to forage ground items in Kaladim (which a lot of people may be doing). The only difficult combine of this really is Champagne Magnum which you'll need an Enchanted Gold Bar for and a Jeweler will have to do the whole combine, 196 trivial. If you're really into Tradeskills this may be a preferable route to you.
