- Talk to Glodrak Huntsniper (H) or Goldark Snipehunter (A) to pick up a pair of Synthebrew goggles. These will save you some coins and allow you to instantly cure yourself of the tipsy-turvy driving granted by the more conventional means of getting "smashed."
- Coren in BRD drops: the mount, copies of the heroism-badge trinkets, 170-stamina mug trinkets, and the remote that will port you and your party to the grim guzzler (of particular use to horde, who have no nearby cities!).
- Sound just commented to recommend that you save up to 350 tokens and then purchase your brewfest clothing; you can then get your achievement and return the clothing to the vendor (within the 2 hours), getting all of your tokens back. Afterwards, you can use those tokens to purchase your Brew Club membership and other things!
- HORDE: when attempting to purchase troll drinks in Durotar, go *inside* the tent. The vendor is bugged and will not sell to anyone who is outside of the tent. It is possible that he wishes to check your ID.
Barking - 15
Dark Iron Cog - 10
Ram-riding every 12/18 hours - 20-30 tokens each (more details on this at the bottom)
x 14 days?
On top of the one-time turn-in quest tokens, you should be able to get 750ish tokens or more, allowing you to purchase both the elekk pet and the items needed for your achievement :) However, this will require daily attendance to the riding-of-the-rams and the more annoying barking-through-the-city quests.
Needed for Holiday Achievements:
1x Fresh Brewfest Hops (2)
1x Hat (50)
1x dress or shirt (200)
1x shoes (100)
Brew Club Membership (200)
= 552 tokens total,
though you can return the clothing after use within 2 hours of purchase to make it only 350 tokens needed!
Additionally, the Pink Elekk pet will require 100 tokens, if you're a pet collector. The Wolpertinger druid-bunny-vampire is free through the quests, if you did not pick that up in the previous years!
For maximum tokens, this should be done at full-speed. Make sure you walk the path first to familiarize yourself with the locations of the barrel-pickup, drop-off, and all 4 apple bins: this will save you time and sanity. In both cases, I recommend keeping a very close eye on your ram's fatigue, as an apple bin may not trigger as you run past, or the barrel-people may not throw or catch your barrels. Either way, keep cracking that whip, and get along top-speed!
I recommend using the two apple crates found along the left-hand side of the road (as you're going to Kharanos). You can thread across the snow and through the trees to make as straight of a line between the barrels and the pickup/dropoff points, which will mean you're off-road for the majority of the time. You do not need to go straight up to the dwarves to pick up or drop off your barrels; as soon as you see it enter your inventory, spin about and head straight back to the apple barrel. Ignore the apple barrels found at either of the end points; these are unnecessary. I am usually able to get in 14-15 barrels per run of this, for a total of 28-30 tokens.

The goblins seem a bit slower and buggier about tossing barrels to people than the dwarves do on alliance. I recommend using the first and third barrels found: the one behind the starting tent out back by the kodo, and the one right behind a small hill at the start of the canyon. Just cut straight across the desert between the two, ignoring the apple bins at the pick-up in the canyon and at the flag-post along the road, unless absolutely necessary. I am usually able to get in 10-11 barrels per run of this, for a total of 20-22 tokens. I did attempt to only rely on the middle two barrels like I do on alliance, but lag on the drop-off tended to force me and others that I watched) to an exhausted ram if only these middle two apple bins were used.
View on the return trip:
When turning in the barrel back at the starting point, simply cut through the tent to circle over to the apple bin, then leap over the fence to start a new trip.
Hope this helps!
