Your continued studies will lead you to a notorious speakeasy, introduce you to Biv—Appalachia's tipsiest robot, and teach you to craft the illicit Nukashine using the all-new Brewing Station.Inside the Vault: Wild Appalachia Preview: Brewing and Distilling

Biv E. Ridge[1] is a drink tester robobrain operating in Appalachia in 2102, added by the Wild Appalachia add-on.


Once per day, after you’ve completed the Wasted on Nukashine questline, you can speak to Biv to continue experimentation and occasionally learn new recipes. Sometimes, you’ll be asked to imbibe various types of alcohol and perform specific tasks. Other times, you’ll learn a new recipe and will need to craft the brew to Biv’s satisfaction.Fallout 76 Wild Appalachia patch notes - March 13, 2019

Biv is a drink tester robobrain found in Big Al's Tattoo Parlor. Biv was acquired by Lewis, whose mother worked for General Atomics International before the Great War. Whether Biv was acquired legally was never explained by Lewis to Judy Lowell or the rest of Eta Psi.[2]

Lewis planned to use Biv to test Nukashine.[3] This was likely the best course of action, as a human who consumed that amount of alcohol from each drink would die from alcohol poisoning. It is unclear as to whether Biv's drunken manner of speech is a result of alcohol taste-testing, or if he was originally programmed to always sound a little intoxicated.

  1. Biv's dialogue: "You know, if life ever does get you down, don't be afraid to consult ole Biv E. Ridge about what's eatin' ya."
  2. Eta Psi House terminal entries#Biv: "I just found out that Lewis’s mother works at General Atomics - not from him, of course. [...] Anyways, that explains where he got the Robobrain from. It doesn't explain HOW he got it, if it's safe... if it's legal."
  3. Eta Psi House terminal entries#Robobrain: "He slipped a note under his door that said, "Need drink tester.""
