Corin Direbrew TBC Guide
Corin Direebre is the ultimate goal of the WoW TBC Brewfest event. The boss offers players several handy trinkets, perfect for TBC alts at level 70. The Grim Guzzler also drops a great dagger for Rogues, but Fury Warriors may use it too if they have nothing else going for them. There is also a chance at the Direbrew’s Remote, which instantly teleports your party to the Grim Guzzler. Lastly, there is the opportunity to loot the Brewfest Kodo and Brefeest Ram, which are limited versions of the Tauren and Dwarf mounts. It is also one of the only opportunities for the opposite faction to get what is traditionally an alliance and horde exclusive mount type.
On a final note, Corin Direbrew drops some pretty incredible trinkets, which are great catch-up trinkets, which are fairly similar to the WoW TBC summer event trinkets from Lord Ahune.

How to get to Corin Direbrew
To start the Corin Direbrew encounter, you will need to head to Black Rock Depths (BRD). Once inside the dungeon entrance, head towards the Dark Iron Mole Machine on your immediate right and take a trip to the Grim Guzzler. However, you will need to fight some mobs before you can access the mole machine. Alternatively, you can have someone in your party use the Direbrew Remote to take you and your party directly to the Corin Direbrew encounter.
Don’t forget to speak to the Brewfest Spy to hand in your daily quest. Then head over to Corin Direbrew in the room on the left-hand side of the Grim Guzzler room, away from all the merry patrons. Have your tank speak to Corin Direbrew and insult him to begin the fight.
Corin Direbrew Tactics
When the boss is aggroed, the tank will need to grab the rest of the adds while the DPS cleave the trash down or nuke one after the other. Once the trash is dead, proceed to kill Corin Direbrew, switching to any adds that spawn. You can prioritize the maidens here if you wish as they are the ones who throw tankards that can stun your allies.
Throughout the fight, more trash will spawn, which can be crowd controlled by almost every CC in the game. Just be careful not to fear them out of the room and have many level 60s join the now Roadhouse bar brawl. When the boss gets low, you can continue to focus the boss. When Corin dies, the adds will despawn, allowing you to loot the boss and reap your rewards.
This concludes our WoW TBC Brewfest guide. You now know what drops in the TBC Corin Direbrew fight, along with all the quests and other goodies associated with the Brewfest event.
