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.

@UbiWan Ok, I've just progressed with the story since i couldn't find the barrel of ale again. Now the mission marker in Sciopscire is back again, even when not tracking the corresponding mission.

Not only has this patch been full of bugs ever since its installed the game has been laggy AF, why didnt you just leave it alone it was fine. I got xbox one x and with the jerky gameplay feels like I'm playing a ps1, in fact I don't think ps1 was even this laggy. Please sort it out, I don't want this game it feels ruined with the added lag. I was enjoying it prior to this patch. Can I get a refund????

Just not realistic, I understand having 1-2 women in the Vikings army, but having more women than men in other groups besides Vikings, like bandits and Saxons, it's just not realistic and highly stupid, instead of creating a good historical game it becomes a caricature. During a battle and on the ship (which for some reason is the only ship in the whole of England, another stupid issue) all I can hear is women screeching and shouting, I even tried to replace all women in my squad but there is still one on the ship by default, so irritating!

Ps4 player. This grrrrrrrrr Ale glitch is driving me INSANE. You get the ale. You put in boat, it disappears. You keep in your hands and walk but if dropped it disappears. Everytime it end up in Scriopescire.. floating around in a place you can NEVER GET TO. BEING AN HOUR AND A HALF TRYING TO DO THIS QUEST. Screw it, no beer for anyone.
Also the one guy posting that there's too many women in the game should be removed. I am a 53 year old woman playing and his post was super sexist and appeared homophobic. Not cool.

@ubiwan Nope, I get a quest marker 3000+ meters away. I've circled the camp since some say West, some say Southeast. I did get the barrel to appear again but when I put it down on the road to fight some wolfs it disapears with the marker still showing thousands of meters to the west

@fixacv4tloo Oh, thank the gods!! Now I don't feel so stupid. I understood the fella was going to wait by the boat (I understood he said that?). So when I saw the distance from there to the settlement and that the horse was a no go, I tried the boat thing too while I was searching for the guy around the docks. Also, not only the barrel went to the bottom of the river, but I managed to destroy the boat too. I am just so great at this. Then, when I loaded the lastest save, I was drunk and the barrel was 3000 m far, somewhere underground. I guess the river curren took it to an unaccesible water body inside a cave or something.
Balance of Yule Season: 2 quest, 2 bugs. One of them was in the first fight and it was almost fun, because one big guy was hanging in the air continously. But this time I am unable to go on with the quest because the barrel is gone. So I am going to sleep and try to forget that I will need to start tomorrow all the Yule season thing from the begining...

I'm playing on the Xbox One X, and after I fight the brewer, it shows the next step WAY to the upper right corner. Way outside of the North Sea. What gives?

I tried to put the barrel on a boat and it fell into the water. I reloaded the save and the barrel was gone entirely. Now I don't have a barrel and I have nowhere to take it.

the way i’ve found to fix the mission is just walk down the road near the bandit camp towards the west near the aqueduct and the mission should refresh itself

Yep. All the Yule missions are glitchy.
Once you have the ale, the guy is on the shoreline to the right. I was headed back to camp with the ale on a boat (my 4th attempt to get it after it kept glitching), and saw him waiting on the shore with odins sight. Definitely not where the map was telling me to go! Lol
