Alfred Grimhand's Bar Crawl is a miniquest that must be completed to gain full access to the Barbarian Outpost, where it's considered a "rite of passage". The Barbarian Outpost Agility Course and the Horror from the Deep and Scorpion Catcher quests also require the completion of this miniquest. To complete it, you must trek around Gielinor to various bars and pubs, drinking specialty brews made by the bartender of each establishment, and having them sign off a Barcrawl card.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Starting out[edit | edit source]

Barcrawl card interface.png

To begin, talk to one of the barbarian guards outside the fenced-in area of the Barbarian Outpost to get the Barcrawl card. The Barcrawl card lists all of the bars and pubs you have to visit. Each one will be checked off when you've ordered the specialty brew from each location. If you lose the card, you'll have to start the entire miniquest all over again.

You'll need to tell the barkeepers that you're doing the barcrawl and they will give you what you need. The brews are very strong, though, causing some damage as well as some steep temporary drops in stats. The entire trip will cost 208 coins, plus money for runes/tablets and boat trips to Karamja. Once you have every line of the card signed, return it to one of the guards at the Barbarian Outpost.

Visiting the bars[edit | edit source]

You can visit the bars in any order. The amount of damage dealt by the damaging drinks is dependent on your Constitution level. None of the beers are actual items; instead, they are consumed automatically.

Optimal route[edit | edit source]

One of the faster ways to do this requires between 208 and 468 coins and uses the lodestone network for most travel. If you can't teleport to Varrock, take a hatchet with you to make a canoe to go from Lumbridge to Varrock. The games necklace, the Ardougne cloak, fairy rings, and the explorer's ring 3 may be useful if you have not unlocked all the lodestones in the lodestone network.

Update history[edit | edit source]

This information has been compiled as part of the update history project. Some updates may not be included—see here for how to help out!
  • patch 5 August 2019 (Update):
    • The Bar Crawl miniquest is now listed before Scorpion Catcher in the Timeline sort of quests, since it requires completion of the bar crawl.
  • patch 2 May 2017 (Update):
    • The bar crawl requirement on some Achievements should now be ticked off correctly.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • After completing all barcrawl locations, you will be unable to read the barcrawl card as you will be "too drunk".
  • After drinking in Brimhaven, it says you think you see two bartenders signing two barcrawl cards.
  • After completing the barcrawl, the guard says he never learned how to read anyway, making the signatures useless. Despite this, he states that you look like you're drunk enough to have completed it.
