(which can no longer be purchased) in 2007. This is the only way to have obtained the non-epic ram, but the Swift version now drops from
Yes, it is obtainable for horde.
gotta be lvl 40 unfortunetly, which i failed to realize after getting half the tickets, now i gotta lvl from 21-40 before brewfest is over, urgh...
Just got my hands on this one. And I gotta say, I love Rams! Specially now that I'm horde and all. People don't seem to understand that this is the real mount, as it looks just like the Ram quest Rams.
Thou, it could also be becouse people didn't think it was possible to farm it in just one day, which infact was true.
I present to you. Server first, Swift Brewfest Ram!
Stellhell, lvl 70 Undead Warlock, Emeriss-EU
I'm confused, can you purchase both or only one of these mounts after you acquire 600 tickets? I'd assumed it just let you open up a vendor that wasn't available before and you shop as normal... I wanna get them both to replace my fugly kodos ...
You can buy both mounts. All the quest does is lock up a vendormenu on Driz Tumblequick.
Are the Horde and Alliance Brewfest mounts identical or different. I have only seen the horde versions. Please confirm.
Sorry if this was stated/asked already, kinda tired.
So the tickets arent used as currency for the rams themselves, just an item that allows access to the purchase page. Do you lose it after you buy a ram?
Also, does anyone happen to know if the venor will be there after the brewfest is over? Like the AQ event NPCs are still hanging around.
Pretty cool mount if you ask me.
Server first on Draenor EU, Zeela.
Just wondering - Can I wait till I'm level 60 to use it?
I'm lvl 30..
The swift brewfest ram has wooden armor and glowing green eyes. the brewfest ram has brown horns and brown hair
Upon purchasing the Swift Brewfest Ram instead of acquiring a rental ram for your dailies you attain a "Ramstein's Swift Work Ram".
It is unknown the actual speed increase than a rental ram.
Interesting that this ram is significantly larger than regular epic rams, including the
. Makes my old ram look small :(
i'd swear that my swift brewfest ram is slightly faster than a regular epic mount. i have no proof but it just feels like it.
I know some roleplayers have kicked up a fuss about this ram, but I love it on my Undead priest - it's added a whole extra dimention to my character's fall to the Scourge and redemption as an undead priest; now I can tell the tale of finding my long-lost faithful mount from my days as a Human :)
damn it i've been keeping last year's tickets for the ram :O and now...an ugly fat kodo..(don't kill me alliance :p)
i'll sue blizzard >.<
Cool mount :3

So you have to spend all that time getting 600 tickets to buy a mount at the normal price? There should be a damn discount or something lol. I'm glad i looked it up before the 600, atleast i got my unlimited beer though ;o)
Finally got this today. Its very cool.
Got my ram 6th October 07 and love it.
Getting this wasn't that hard...you get 40 tickets from barking, then I was getting 33 tickets from the keg run. Do that twice a day and it's yours in no time. I like it actually. I'm a tauren and never cared much for the Kodo anyway. And I haven't been hitting the BG like I should for any other mount. But it's a nice extra to the game. My tauren lookes kind funny sitting on a ram for some reason. LOL
where can you get this.. :D
If you say it's just a normal ram, you're wrong.
It's so clearly different than the others rams.
The Armour is brown, with no big metal circles on them,
bright breen glowing eyes,
red saddle thing with gold pattern and the brewfest logo,
I got mine 9:45am (approximately) October 6th 2007.
Very nice ram, if you wish to see it,
both level 40 and level 60 are displayed in the pen next to the Ram Riding Apparentice and the Ram Riding Master.
Alliance, level 62 Night Elf Druid (when obtained) and loving it.
Swiftstriker, first one to get it on Zul'Jin! it look cool

after the initial quests, there are only 2 ways to get tickets anymore.
Unless the dark iron event comes back, the only way to get tickets is to either do the ram racing, or the barking quests.
The barking quests are a daily quest so of course with it you can only get 40 tickets/day.
The ram racing quest is a 12 hour repeatable... every 12 hours you can do it again. As ive found out, if you are good enough at hugging turns and not stopping for this event, you are able to get 12 turn ins. at 3 tickets per lap, 36 tickets. at every 12 hours this would be 72 tickets/day... but for most people they will get 10 turn ins so 60 tickets... all in all you should be able to get 100 tickets/day. so 6 days is all you need to get it
As for me, im sitting at 576 tickets... at my next ram racing event i will be able to buy this ram and I will post a picture of it. my record so far for laps with racing is sadly only 11... but i know its possible to get 12.
other then graphics wise it any differnt then a normal mount? (speed wise or like the rein thing is usable on it or something along those lines)
460 tickets, so close, i should have it in 2 days if i work hard, 3 if i cant quite make it
Can i buy the epic ram even if im not yet lvl 60?
And use it when i got the raiding skill?
so this is like a regular mount where you can ride it anywhere, not just when brewfest is up?

I must be missing something...what are the Dark Iron things people are talking about here? I have just been doing the barking quests and the beer runs...what else is there to gain tickets?
As I posted under the Hand Stamp here, this mount is actually kind of a rip for Alliance. It's easy enough to get Exhalted with IF these days and then you can buy a regular Ram for 9 gold or an Epic one for 90 gold. For the Brewfest Rams you go thru all the time and effort of getting the 600 tickets only to be charged 10 gold and 100 gold. Yeah, for Horde this is totally worth it cuzz there is no other way for them to get this kinda Ram mount, but come on Blizz, where is the Wolf (at least) for Alliance? Now a Wolf like the Org ones would be kewl for them. I went ahead and got the 600 tickets, turned them in, did the quest, but have yet to buy a Brewfest Ram just because my main on the server I did this with doesn't have the cash to just blow away yet, besides the fact that she is a Gnome who is Exhalted already with IF and can save 10 gold if I just go buy a Ram with pretty purple armor instead of brown, /shrug.

I dont have any horde to get this mount. :P
But Im getting this on my main.... which is a doorf. /sigh
But it's a "rare"-mount atleast. :D
I love this mount.
If you look closely, the armor isn't just brown, it's like someone
cut apart a Wooden Barrel and fastened it as armor.
Sadly, for a NE, the legs cover the mug on the side.
I hardly ever see anyone else with it anymore ): only in BG's.
I'd love to submit this, but clicking the submit screenshot button isn't working,
so here it is.
EDIT: It's me on the rams btw,

O sh*t hell yeah Gettin this FOSHO!

#1: What time does the (12 hourly?) beer delivery quest reset?
#2: Can I buy the ram "hand stamp" before level 40, and when I level up have access to the Brewfest Ram?
now at 313 tomorrow at 377 and the day after that 441...and after that 505 and after that hopefully the dark iron event is back and ill have it..or ill be at 569..and the day after that.. *makes a Godly-like sound* ill have it ^^ and pawn the allys in AV
to even get the ability to buy this trophy mount you would have to spend at least a week doing brewfest daily quests for tickets, if done right you can get about 80 tickets a day after the first day's worth, after you finally get a whopping 600 tickets you still have to front the 100 gold for the mount itself. A nice mount to have but takes patience and money to obtain.
eh, 100g isn't that much. If you do your dailies you can get that in mere hours. As for the quests themselves to get the tickets; you can only do 2 quests to get tickets, therfor only requires you to log in a total of 15 minutes per day to get the max tickets.
Just got mine an hour ago, as said above it's not that hard to get it. Just do you daily quests and you should make it with easy :). Just don't rush it and do it all relaxed and you'll will get it :). (As long as you do the Q's.)

Ya, I had no problem doing it in 8 days, easy and fast quests. :)
It took me 6 days to get the ram. I was getting 100 tickets a day: 40 from the daily, then 30 from each keg run every 12 hours. The Ram speeds are just like normal mounts, 60% and 100%.
I got pretty angry today running the barrel delivery race. I've had my characters pretty much parked at the brewfest tents. I decided to actually play a little this morning on my mage. I swapped my reins out for the spell that belongs in their place. When I came back to do the race I hopped on the ram and "whipped" up a frost nova. BAM no mount. Forfeit 30 tickets for a stupid mistake. My fault, but I wish blizz would have made those mounts so you HAD to click the buff to dismount.
I was pretty pissed with myself. I'll still be fine gettting my mount as I'm already at 500 tickets but still.
Not to mention I noticed that just getting close to the bushels of apples isn't enough sometimes they'll miss taking care of your rams fatigue. I run the ram straight into the basket so I touch it. Earlier today it missed STILL even though I stopped ON the basket. I love the fact I'm getting a ram for this but I'm sick of doing this damned race. (I'm running 3 characters so its getting old.)
As long as you're not totally inept, you can get this thing.
After mastering the strategy, I was able to get 45 tickets per keg run (That's 15 round trips) and then 40 from barking quests. 45 + 45 + 40 = 130. 600/130? Take you less than 6 days of about an hour a day, if that.
Is this worth an ally to get the mount?
I did it in 8 days. Here's how:
First day: You can get atleast 100 tickets. Complete 'pink elekks on parade' for 40, 'barking for thunderbrew' for 40 more, 'this is ram racing...sort of' for 10, and then the repeatable barrel relay one, that you should earn atleast 20 per shot doing. You can do this once every 12 hours, so twice on this day is 40 more tickets.
So on the first day, you will get like 130 tickets.
Day 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8: Do the beer keg relay twice a day, and aim at getting 20 tickets per run (each barrel yields 3 tickets). Also, do the 'Barking for Thunderbrew' once on each of these days. This is a total of 80 per day, and you can get 100 if you do good.
For all the low levels who don't have their mount and try to complete the barking quest there is an easy trick. As long as you finish barking with about 30 seconds to spare, simply leave IF and as soon as u get 2 the ramp jump down the right side of it. If you do this correctly you will end up almost next to the quest giver.
(for next year lol)
I drank so much that I couldn't see you,
I was startled by Wolpertingers out of the blue.
I cannot believe how many kegs I took,
The tickets he gave me made the Goblin a crook.
I saw Elekks and Female Orcs everywhere I went,
But in the end my Swift Brewfest Ram was worth every cent.
ne1 else think the races competing fer best brew shoulda been Dwarves (obviously), Goblins (ok ill go wiht that), and PANDAREN!
grab life by the horns
An answer to many of your questions has just been posted on wowinsider...
It appears that this Brewfest Ram will be available for the Alliance to purchase this year again, however, the horde will no longer be able to get it. They will also be adding a Brewfest Kodo, HOWEVER, alliance will not be able to get the Kodo as it will only be available for the Horde to purchase.
To Sum it up, Alliance get Ram, Horde get Kodo unless they got the Ram last year.
You will be able to get an item similar to the Fresh Holly that will change your mount into a Ram or a Kodo, and they will also be adding a seasonal boss in Blackrock Depths that will drop a Trinket that will summon a barmaid, which you will be able to wave at to get free Brewfest Brew.
i thnk it's kinda stupid that they're takin away the ram and replacing it with a fat kodo (for the horde). the brewfest ram is pretty much the only alliance mount horde can get (aside from the zulian tiger/spectral tiger) easily while alliance can get the raptor from ZG, the skeletal horse from Strat, and the hawkstrider from MGT. they also get the winterspring tiger (after a LONG and BORING grind for it). Sure the drop rate for the mounts suck, but alliance get to have pretty much any horde mount, other than wolf/kodo (yet -_-). i think it'd be better to keep both the brewfest ram and kodo, and let horde be able to get ram and ally get kodo. and if an ally wants the ram and horde wants the kodo, then they should be able to have a choice, instead of forcing one faction to have a mount they don't want. i'd much rather have a ram for my tauren that a kodo -_-
