Alfred Grimhand's Barcrawl

Old School RuneScape uses the British convention for floor numbering: Ground floor, first floor, etc.

Alfred Grimhand's Barcrawl is a miniquest that is required to be completed in order to gain access to the Horror from the Deep and Scorpion Catcher quests, and access to the Barbarian Outpost Agility course, where it is considered a "rite of passage". To complete it, you must trek around various bars and pubs in RuneScape, drinking a specialty drink, having them sign off a supplied Barcrawl card.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Starting out[edit | edit source]

To begin, talk to one of the barbarian guards outside the Agility training area at the Barbarian Outpost to get the Barcrawl card. If your inventory is full, the guard will make no mention of the miniquest and you will not receive the card. While doing the bar crawl, you'll be given a card with a list of all the bars you have to visit. Each one will be checked off when you've found it and drank the specific brew required. If you lose the card, you'll have to start the entire miniquest all over again.

You'll need to tell the barkeepers that you're doing the Alfred Grimhand Barcrawl and they will give you what you need. The brews are very strong, though, causing some damage as well as some steep temporary drops in stats. The entire trip will cost around 230 coins, plus money for runes/tablets and boat trips to Karamja. Once you have every line of the card signed, return it to one of the guards at the Barbarian Outpost.

Visiting the bars[edit | edit source]

You can visit the bars in any order. The amount of damage dealt by the damaging drinks is dependent on your Hitpoints level.

For the optimal route check out the section after the table below.

Optimal route[edit | edit source]

One of the faster ways to do this requires between 208 and 468 coins and uses teleports for most travel. If you can't teleport to Varrock, take an axe with you to make a canoe to go from Lumbridge to Varrock. The games necklace, skills necklace, Ardougne teleport, fairy rings, Chronicle and the amulet of glory can be very useful.

Alternative route for low magic/few teleports[edit | edit source]

Another route for easiness of inventory management.

Another way of doing barcrawl is by using Teleport to House tablets, going on to a house party world (World 330 for example) this will save you buying the jewellery items that can be used to teleport you and is another way of easily shifting to the different places required.

Rewards[edit | edit source]

Upon completion of the miniquest, players will now be able to access the Barbarian Outpost Agility course, which is required to enter during Scorpion Catcher and Horror from the Deep.

In addition, players can speak to the barbarian guard to learn how to automatically smash empty vials upon drinking the last dose of a potion.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • After completing all bar crawl locations, you will be unable to read the bar crawl card as you will be "too drunk."
  • After drinking in Brimhaven, it says you think you see two bartenders signing two barcrawl cards.
  • After drinking at the Falador pub, your screen will sway slightly to indicate you are drunk.
  • None of the drinks appear in a player's inventory but are drunk automatically.
  • After you hand the bar crawl card to the guard, he says that he never learned to read, he just sees you are plenty drunk and lets you go to the agility course.
