The Tavernkeep

Ale is a potion and food item which grants the player the Tipsy debuff, increasing melee damage but lowering the player's defense for two minutes. Ale can be crafted at a Keg or purchased from the Tavernkeep(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) for 1 SC each.

The Tipsy debuff has the following effects: This content is transcluded from Tipsy.

Ale is also used as ammunition for the Ale Tosser(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions), and can therefore be stored in the player's inventory ammo slots.

Like all other food items, Ale can be placed on a Plate(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions).

(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) Ale when held.
(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) Ale being thrown with the Ale Tosser.

  • Ale sells for 20 CC and only requires Mugs, which in turn only require 1 Glass, which is crafted from only 2 Sand each. Each unit of 2 Sand is therefore worth 20 CC if used to craft Ale. Crafting Ale can ultimately be the most profitable means of selling off Sand without incorporating other ingredients.
  • Since Tipsy is a debuff, it will be removed by the Nurse. Repeatedly consuming Ale and healing at the Nurse can be a quick and easy way to obtain the The Frequent Flyer achievement.
  • The Well Fed and Plenty Satisfied(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) buffs partially negate the −4 defense penalty of Tipsy.
    • (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) The highest tier of said buff, Exquisitely Stuffed, completely negates the defense penalty of Tipsy.
