A foul smelling brew.

Moonlight mead is an ale that can be brewed with the Cooking skill at level 44 or higher, granting 380 experience. Drinking this heals 4 hitpoints, and when doing so, the game remarks that "It tastes like something just died in your mouth." It can be bought for 5 coins from Roavar in the Hair of the Dog Tavern, located in Canifis.


The full recipe for Moonlight mead is as follows (ingredients used in the order given):

  1. 2 Buckets of Water
  2. 2 Barley malt.
  3. (Optional) 1 "The stuff", to increase chance of maturity.
  4. 4 mushrooms
  5. 1 Ale yeast
  6. Wait two to five days
  7. Collect the completed ale using eight Beer glasses or two Calquat kegs.


  • Moonlight mead might be a reference to moonshine, a common name for home-distilled alcohol, especially in places where this practice is illegal. Moonshine is also a brand name of alcohol, which is illegal since it contains a very large percentage of alcohol, and is considered very dangerous.
  • Moonlight mead may also be a reference to moonlight of the full moon, which is normally related with men turning into werewolves, although this doesn't apply to the werewolves in Canifis.
  • Since it does not contain honey, it is not truly mead.
