Beer is the most common form of alcohol in the wasteland and as such can be found in a large number of locations.


  • Beer is an ingredient in mole rat stew and Cook-Cook's Fiend stew, made at campfires.
  • Though a drink just like whiskey or scotch, beer doesn't make the same sound as when one picks up another drink item; instead it makes a miscellaneous sound such as when scrap metal is picked up.
  • While the Pip-Boy icon for beer shows the bottle having a label, the world model does not.
  • Beer has the lowest addiction percentage of alcoholic drinks despite having the same effects as whiskey, scotch and vodka.
