Your villagers will need something to drink if they are not too busy caring for their settlement in Going Medieval. The usual drink that people only had available in the medieval area was anything with alcohol, so in the morning with breakfast beer or wine was usually drunk. The same thing works in Going Medieval. You want to make sure your liquor stores are always ready, and beer, beer and wine are some of the best drinks you can make when you start a settlement.
Before you try to brew any of these drinks, you must explore them by building a research station. Once you do that and place it under a roof, away from the rain, you must assign one of your villagers to the research task. We recommend choosing the one that has the most intellectual states. They can do the fastest research the fastest, even if someone with a star next to the status, even if not the best, will be able to do the fastest level when there is research, which is always an advantage. Finally, you will research enough to buy Brewing technology and gain access to the brewing station.
With the brewery you will be able to make beer, beer and wine for your villagers. These are the ingredients you will need for each.
- Ale: 20 Barley, 5 Fuel
- Beer: 20 barley, 5 herbs and 5 fuels
- Wine: 20 red currants
All ingredients, except fuel, can be grown. You can grow barley, herbs and red currants by creating designated areas somewhere near your settlement and by having the villager plant these seeds. To specify these areas, go to the “zone” icon by clicking or selecting the F7 key at the bottom left of the screen. There will be an option for a storage area or zone where you grow something. Click on the right slot and select the ingredients you want to grow. Given how many ingredients you will need for each of them, we recommend creating 10 x 10 or 8 x 8 zones.
You will have to go through a waiting cycle until these plants grow to full maturity, and then harvest them. Once these ingredients are harvested, go to your brewery station, choose as many orders of beer, beer or wine as you want to make, and by increasing the brewing priority for the villager’s work, they should take care of it when they can. Make sure you have another villager, or the same, place the drinks in your designated storage location.
