So, I'm back from my hols, and I've been having a blast with the new world event: Brewfest. I believe that it all goes away for another year tomorrow morning, so if you haven't tried any of the events just yet, I'd suggest you do so.
It adds some really nice little bits of mechanics into the game. The Ram Racing (racing against the clock, not other people) is huge fun, with the chance to do it three times in one day. There's a keg delivery quests you can do every 12 hours, and a "barking" quest around you capital that can be done every day. Just like the flying quests early in Burning Crusade hinted at the flying mounts later in the game, I wonder if the highest speed these rams can reach hints at a higher speed land mount for us, as a sop for the early parts of Wrath of the Lich King given that they're not giving us flying mounts until late in that expansion, too?
Some video evidence of the event (and the sad results of too much Brewfest booze) after the jump.
