Two Quests Removed from European Brewfest

Vaneras has confirmed on the official European forums that the Brewfest quests "Pink Elekks On Parade" and "Catch the Wild Wolpertinger!" have been removed from European servers "to ensure that World of Warcraft contains content that complies with regional game rating requirements."

Many European players are asking for more details on exactly why the quests were removed, but Vaneras said in another thread that, "I'm afraid, however, I have no more information to give other than what I already have. We want the quests to be available here, but this isn't possible unfortunately."

Since both quests require you to be drunk or wearing Synthebrew Goggles to see the elekks and wolpertingers, we can only assume that the quests were removed due to the alcohol requirement, which seems ridiculous since Brewfest is all about enjoying brew. European players have asked if they'll have access to those 40 tokens through other means, but Blizzard has yet to respond.

This isn't new, those quests weren't available on European servers last year either, though they were the year before.

I think all the European Beer Company's should band together and say there goverments will not got any tax from the sale of there Beer. ts funny because i bet there is so many politicians over there getting drunk and falling down stairs all the time.
Plus wouldn't you rather a kid get drunk in a make believe world then go out drinking in the real world and get hit by a car. Computer games don't make people drink in real life and if the politicians believe this what the hell were the people in the 60's and 70's influinced by as games like WOW weren't around.

It's stupid to take out these quests and leave in other stuff to do with brewfest, in particular the achievement for getting totally blind drunk then falling a long way without dying...

Wow, that's really a shame. Europeans reading this ought to consider phoning their elected officials to say that they're tired of being treated like children by their government.

Its even more confusing since, in my opinion, the Europeans themselves have some great brew and really know how to drink it. My English buddy puts me under the table every time. Brewfest is like an homage to European brewmeisters. Mmmmmm, beer.
