Various forms of alcohol appear in all games of the Fallout series.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Alcoholic beverages have been available throughout the Fallout series in varying forms. In the "classic" set of games — Fallout, Fallout 2, and Fallout Tactics — alcohol served little purpose, providing no obviously beneficial effects, and being useful only under certain, limited circumstances. In later games this was changed; alcoholic beverages in Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas and Fallout 4 all provide both beneficial and negative effects. Fallout: New Vegas, in particular, places extra emphasis on whiskey through the Whiskey Rose companion perk, essentially turning the item into a combat chem while the perk is active.

Types[edit | edit source]

  • Beer, one of the oldest alcoholic drinks brewed from cereal grains.

Examples[edit | edit source]

Absinthe[edit | edit source]

Alcohol-Z[edit | edit source]

Gameplay article:

Alcohol-Z is a non-alcoholic synthetic beverage, made only in Vault City.[1][2] Essentially, there is no real "Alcohol-Z" item, as the dialogue option does nothing except give $20 to the bartender and increase your "drinking" stat for the purposes of the perks.

Battle Brew[edit | edit source]

Nuka-Cola Dark[edit | edit source]

This particular variation of Nuka-Cola became the company's attempt at entering the alcoholic beverage market and appeal to the adult demographic. A ready to drink of Nuka-Cola and rum boasting an alcohol-by-volume content of 35%,[4] the beverage was touted as "the most thirst-quenching way to unwind." Unsurprisingly, those partaking in the drink were recommended to not operate motor vehicles or heavy machinery for at least eight hours after drinking, and encourage women who are pregnant or may become pregnant to avoid the drink.[5] Still, it found success in many of the finer lounges and restaurants across the nation.[6]
