"The Emperor" is a dark, roasty, and high in alcohol beer made by Chen Stormstout, Li Li Stormstout, Mudmug, and the adventurer. Chen brewed it in Halfhill in the Valley of the Four Winds as a response of Uncle Gao's dismissal from the following ingredients:
- Sweet malt grain (Grain Basket)
- Hops provided by Gardener Fran, Mung-Mung, and Gai Lan (Hop Basket)
- Gladewater from the Swirling Pools (some of it were collected from a crab's gills, a water venom spider's mouth with poison, and a croc's belly) (Water Barrel)
In addition, the barrels for the brew were obtained by Chen.
After the Ik'thik mantid broke the Serpent's Spine and assaulted Stoneplow, Chen, Li Li, and Mudmug were among the defenders, and they brought with them the Emperor. Tended to by Mudmug, the adventurer escorted the pandaren carrying the barrels of the Emperor in his hands through the Stoneplow Fields. They delivered it to the Zhu's Wardens, the Crane Wing priests, the Shado-Pan, the Sentinels, and Dawnchasers fighting against the mantid.
