Locating the Brewing Machine


Rufus at Rexford Hotel

Rufus at the Rexford hotel will give you the task to locate a special robot. The marked location is The Shemrock Taphouse, a small settlement of addicts. Sneak through the corridors to get to the basement undetected.


Buddy in the basement of Shemrock Taphouse

In the basement, you will encounter a group of mole rats and find Buddy the robot. Activate it using the level II terminal. You can send it to the hotel or keep it for yourself and send it to any settlement. Every few days it can create a beer for you. If you find holographic tapes with other brewing receipts, the robot can create other drinks as well. It is also an additional firepower for the settlement – it has a laser cannon and flame thrower. However, the quest will not end until you deliver the robot (you can send it to the hotel later).

Optional: Sell Buddy to Rufus


Guide the robot to Rexford hotel

You can also take the robot back to Rufus. The quest marker points at the robot, but you don’t need to walk it to Goodneighbor – simply teleport there using the quick travel and wait for the robot to arrive. You will receive money from Rufus, and the robot will continue to serve its purpose in that place (creating drinks).

Additional Recipe for Buddy


Additional beer recipe for the robot under the table

Before proceeding, take the beer recipe under the bar (holo tape), next to the main entrance to the building.

Quest rewards: experience, 150-400 bottle caps, optional – a robot that will defend your settlement and brew beer.
