This page could probably be upgraded to Exceptional Quality as soon as someone verifies that the drink values haven't changed. --FunkyWaltDogg 16:12, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

dwarves not drinking[edit]

Since the dwarves take longer before drinking (and will become drowsy before sleeping, and hungry before eating) many dwarves will have the blue warning arrow saying they are thirsty. Therefore it's not obvious that your settlement has run out of alcohol and has no viable water source, until people start dying.

I've had dwarves dying of thirst from simply refusing to drink clean water. If you haven't set up a water source or a well, dwarves seem to take even longer to decide they want a drink. I learnt that at the price of my legendary weaponsmith. --Libelnon 15:30, 14 June 2010 (UTC)

separate pages for different drinks[edit]

If the drink values are verified, then I think each drink could have its own page. Would this be redundant? Zander j 17:13, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

To my knowledge the difference between drinks is largely value, source, and name. That information is best displayed in a table on one page. I don't think a page for each drink would be more constructive. --Nahno 21:55, 30 September 2010 (UTC)
They also differ in color, though I think the only way you ever see that is if the alcohol is decanted to glass flasks (vials) by your military and then dropped. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw that the first time. --Oddrune 22:19, 19 November 2010 (UTC)

Are barrels consumed?[edit]

When a dwarf drinks alcohol, is the barrel spared, or is it consumed? This might be worth noting in the article as well. --Ruan942 09:39, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

Also, the same with seeds. Are seeds spared when alcohol is made? Ruan942 15:51, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

Booze barrels are reusable. Also, brewing alcohol does yield usable seeds. --Quietust 15:53, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

Sunshine Pot[edit]

Shouldn't this be listed in the plants category? :D
