Fallout 76 “was not the great success Bethesda had hoped for. But that does not stop the developers from supporting the online RPG in the long term.
With “Wild Appalachia”, which will be released on March 12, 2019 for “Fallout 76”, the company is also bringing the new brewing and distilling system into play. Some information has been published on the official site.

With “Wild Appalachia” you can expect a new quest called “Crashed on Nukashine”. It’s off near Vault Tec University, where you can relive the glory days of the VTU elite. Also you can find out there, which mischief the students have driven outside the lecture halls.
Then you end up in a notorious whisper bar and meet Al, Appalachia’s drunken robot. He tells you how you can make the illegal Nukashine yourself with the brand new brewing station.
This offers the brewing station
The brewing station is basically a workbench that you can learn to make during the quest “Crashed on Nukashine”. It can be used in your C.A.M.P. placed and used for brewing a range of alcoholic beverages. These include beer, cocktails, wines and spirits.
Please note while enjoying the drinks: Each glass gives you a temporary reinforcement, but with disadvantages. Like in real life, you will not be spared a hangover. Bethesda adds:
“Some alcoholic drinks, such as wines and spirits, need a certain amount of fermentation time before they can be served. And the longer they cook, the more potent their effects. In ‘Crashed on Nukashine’, you will also learn how to make the fermenter, which you also find in your C.A.M.P. can set up. Place your drinks in it to shorten the waiting time. “
The alcoholic drinks and their effects
Below is a brief overview of the beverages that can be made for you:
Wines and spirits
Wines and spirits require a fermentation period. Only then can the effects be enjoyed as “fresh” drinks to the fullest. From the status “fresh” will eventually “vintage”. These drinks have an even stronger effect.
Freshness Effect: Your melee attacks cause you to ignite yourself and damage you and your attacker.
Vintage Effect: In addition to the Freshness effect, enemies fire through your firearms and melee attacks.
Beers have to ferment too. In the end, they should be served fresh. Therefore, there is no vintage effect for beers. The hop hunter has the following effect:
Freshness Effect: Improves stability when using riflescopes and increases damage to animals. Reduces precision in V.A.T.S.
Mixed drinks do not require any fermentation and their effects can not be increased. The Tick Blood Tequila offers:
Effect: Your successful melee attacks have a chance to infect you with an illness, but can also fill your hunger bar.
If you feel thirsty for more, you can go to Al. If you talk to him, you will receive two repeatable random day quests. In the first quest, you will learn new recipes when you graduate. The second quest puts your taste buds to the test as you test the questionable effects of various drinks.
