    @hazza1256 same bug will happen in at least another Yule Festival mission, the one you look for the missing cows. So I hope they fix these issues soon.

    Hello all!

    I've merged together several threads about being unable to proceed in "The Case of the Missing Ale" together, so we can keep all this information in one place. Apologies if any ongoing discussions were disrupted by this.

    This issue was marked as resolved following the end of the Yule Festival. I will now be locking this thread.

    If you require help with any other issues, please check out our megathread list, or open up a new thread.

    Keep an eye out for future events within our News & Announcements forum, as well on the official website.

    Thanks all! 😊

    @fixacv4tloo Same problem on PC with quest icon being over 3000m away. Here's how I solved it:

    Follow the main road out of the camp in WEST direction. On the beach you should find the man and return him the ale to finish the quest

    Hey all! We appreciate the report for this issue. A few players who have experienced the same kind of issue have mentioned being able to walk to the proper quest location by following the river about 150m southeast of the quest's starting point. Please give this a try!

    Same here, it's telling me to go to Sciropescire and the cask of ale just disappeared after loading back the save. Seems like Ubisoft cares more about gender equality (90% of characters are women in the game) and rainbow ship skins, than they do about solving bugs and glitches before releasing something!

    I've also got a marker in Sciropescire and no ale cask. I set it down to fight some bandits and it disappeared.

    On ps5 I had the marker being set incorrectly in the same way. I completed the mission by jumping onto a small fishing boat with the ale, and following the river to the quest marker - Eivor actually went to the correct location, not the one indicated by the buggy marker.

    Happened again, in the mission where you kill the cows for the feast, after collecting all the meat the marker for "Escort Bertham back" showed up far away, in the exact same spot it did for the ale quest. But again, just going onto the small boat with Bertham and dismounting in Ravensthorpe reset the marker correctly and I was able to finish the quest.

    @ubiwan I'm having the same issue. I tried taking a screenshot but I can't find where it's saved. The bandit camp is about 1km east of Ravensthorpe, once you get the keg of special ale the next waypoint is about 1.7 km west of Ravensthorpe. When I get there it says it's still 240 m below me. Also it says something about getting the ale to the apprentice's boat, but there's no waypoint for it and once you pick the keg up it just says to bring it back, nothing about a boat.

    My cask respawned back in the center hut and I followed the above instructions to finish the quest.

    got a simular bug, was suposed to deliver the ale but it send me 4000m away and i lost the ale, unable to recover it...

    @ubiwan But once the ale is picked up, the next step for "Bring back the secret brew" puts the quest icon in southeast Sciropescire. When I take the boat all the way there and run to the icon, it says it's way below me. If I bring the Ale back Ravensthorpe, there's no indicator for someone I should take to or someplace I should set it to complete the quest.

    @ubiwan undefinedsome other bugs I've encountered after this
    So at first I thought it wasn't a bug so I went to my longship n traveled there however my ship sail mass didn't get lowered for the low pass bridges even tho theres dialogue n sound for lowering it.
    Another bug i found was after I reload a save from this quest eivor spawns in very drunk.

    Hi Team,

    Great work with the game so far! However need to report a bug in the latest release of the 'Yule Festival'. Mission one named 'The Case of the Missing Ale' Once you've retreived the barrel from the bandit camp the mission icon for 'Bring back the Brew' isnt found in Ravensthorpe but located west in Sciropescire (where the curse land icon is) the icon displays in the same area but underground see images below. I've tried bringing it back to the brewery in Ravensthorpe but still does nothing see Nothing see images below. also after carrying the barrel for say 10 minutes the textures have broken on them see images below.undefinedundefinedundefined
    Well excited for the yule festival its a great idea to do them as seasonal events 🙂 however I am unable to progress this further 😞 due to the above, please fix this as soon as you can. Hopefully you aren't far from releasing a hotfix update.

    @eladath01 Also the quest Cow Catcher directs me to the same point to return to after killing the cows, 1.7 km west of Ravensthorpe.
