Dragon bitter is an ale that can be brewed with the Cooking skill at level 39, granting 347 experience. Dragon bitter may also be purchased at the Dragon Inn in Yanille

When drunk, it increases the player's Strength level by two, but reduces their Attack level by 2. It also restores 390 life points.

  • Calquat kegs are highly recommended, especially if the ale has matured. This creates Dragon bitter (keg). Simply by collecting the ale in a keg, the value of the batch will increase by several thousand coins. This ale is considerably more useful in a keg, as it stacks 4 doses into one inventory slot.

Dragon bitter can be a fast, but tedious way to earn money. It takes less than 5 minutes to run from the bank in Yanille, to the pub, buy 28 pints of Dragon bitter at 2gp each and return to the bank. They must be bought as singles by talking to the bartender as there is no 'Trade' option. Based on the Grand Exchange price of 1,393 and assuming the player is able to get 364 Dragon bitter per hour, this method can enable a player to make 506,324 per hour. However, it can be difficult to sell the dragon bitters due to a lack of demand.

Other uses[edit | edit source]

Dragons bitter heals 390 life points, as well as boosting Strength by 2 (non-stackable) while lowering Attack by 4, per dose consumed which can bring a player's Attack level all the way down to 0 if used repeatedly.
