Beer detail.png

Beer is a food item which, when drank, heals 100 life points and temporarily increases the player's Strength by 2, however it also decreases the player's Attack temporarily by 6 or 7%. It cannot be brewed by players.

Drinking multiple mugs of beer in short succession cannot bring a player's Strength bonus beyond an increase of 2 but such an act can repeatedly cause a penalty to a player's Attack until it reaches a minimum of 0. However, even if the player drinks multiple beers, they are still able to wield weapons of their base level (e.g. If a player with 60 Attack drinks beer to lower their level below 60, they can still wield dragon weapons).

During the Vampyre Slayer quest, a player will have to give Dr. Harlow a beer before he gives them a stake in which you use to finish off the vampyre.

Barrels with a tap protruding from it with examine text of "The barrel is full of ale" or "!" you can use a beer glass on the barrel and fill the glass with beer. These barrels have been gradually removed from the game alongside graphical reworks leaving very few left. Known locations include the Docking port on Musa Point, Sithik Ints' house in Yanille, the Dead Man's Chest in Brimhaven and the house with the piano east of it, by the Woman Warriors north of Ardougne, and the Mill Road Mill.

Three beers can be picked up from the tables in the main hall of the Barbarian Village.
