Drunken Master’s Secret Tunic
The Dwarven brewmaster, Rogar Hopsbeard, introduced the magnificent brew to the acrobats of Slink Strong’s Halfling Circus as a gift for teaching him the tricks of Halfling tumbling.

Fiery Belly Ale
This powerful, pepper-flavored ale often leaves the surprised drinker gasping for cool water to sooth the burning in his throat. Fiery Belly ale is a harsh, unforgiving drink that leaves a steady flame in the imbiber’s gut. Many Dwarfs and Orcs have found this a pleasant sensation, and seeing a precious keg of this drink in their possession is almost becoming common. This ale is an inebriating beer that gives the drinker the ability to belch flames. A tell-tale churning and burning in the gut indicates that the special properties are active. Drinking more than 3 mugs is dangerous and may cause the drinker to vomit flame at an inappropriate moment.

Hopbeard’s Fighting Lager
Combat is a state of mind amongst the Dwarves and as much as it is an art form, it is thirsty work. Hopsbeard’s fighting lager revivifies fatigue and frightened soldiers and warrior after fighting a long and difficult battle. It is also highly valued for its crisp wheat taste and subtle honey and citron-like accents.
A single mug of bear removes a fatigues condition in 2 hours of rest instead of 8 hours, as long as its drank slowly. Drinking the lager as a full-round action while sicken or shaken removes the effects for 1d6 hours or the duration of effect, whichever is shorter. Swigging back the ale in a thirsty frenzy does not grant any special properties. A keg of this beer holds 20 mugs’ worth.
