Hurlg (Or'zet for strong booze) is a dark, thick ale the consistency of soup, swimming with hops and nutmeg, and fortified with a combination of 160 to 180 proof alcohols.

The mildly hallucinogenic properties of large amounts of nutmeg, along with the alcohol generates a terrific buzz, and often leads to passing out afterwards. Hurlg has a robust, nutty flavor, and is inflammable. Those with lower constitutions (especially humans and elves) often suffer disorientingly severe and painful stomach cramps unless they have a related implant or magic.

Notable brands[]


In the Fourth World (Earthdawn), Hurlg was an alcoholic beverage made from fermented rye mixed with animal fat. The type of fat used determines its quality, from low-grade cat fat to celebratory thundra fat.
