Important Questions

What’s a Pale Ale?

It’s an Artisan Good produced in a Keg. Like most alcoholic beverages, it’s best known for its hefty selling price.

Moreover, you’ll get a Tipsy buff and -1 Speed buff for 30 seconds upon consuming it. These effects aren’t ideal if you’re in a rush, but it restores some of your stats if they’re already at low levels. The amount of healing effects depends on the ingredient’s grade. 

Here’s the list of rejuvenation you get by using a normal quality to iridium quality crop in making it:

Silver Star+70+31
Gold Star+90+40
Iridium Star +130+58

How to Get Pale Ale?

Visiting Ginger Island’s Beach Resort can be a great idea since Gus’ Bar sells it for 1,000g. Unfortunately, you won’t find it in Pelican Town. But producing it would give you many monetary advantages.

It’s essential to have a Keg and Hops in creating it. But you have to reach Farming Level 8 before obtaining the artisan equipment’s crafting recipe. After that, you’ll need Wood (30), Oak Resin (1),  Copper Bar (1), and Iron Bar (1) to craft this equipment. 

Moreover, don’t forget to grow Hops before summer ends in Pelican Town, as it’s only available this time of the year. But you can visit your Greenhouse or Island Farm and wait for it to develop. This way, you can still produce it at any time. 

Here are the places you can grow these ingredients:

  • JojaMart- 75g
  • Traveling Cart- 100g to 1000g
  • Night Market on Winter 16- 60g

In yielding this product, you have to place its primary ingredient in a Keg and let it sit there for two days.

Availing the final house upgrade from the Carpenter Shop has its perks since you’ll have a cellar in the basement of your farmhouse. You can place your Cask here and age your Pale Ale’s quality to increase profits. Earning the Artisan Profession would also increase their base value to iridium value by 40%. 

Additionally, you can remove the Silver to Iridium Pale Ale from the Cask by striking it with a hoe, pickaxe, or axe.
