The Ivy Bush
The Ivy Bush is one of the two taverns in Hobbiton. Although it may not be as well-known as The Green Dragon, the Ivy Bush is still a place to get a beer.
One of the things the game does for new players, is it gives them a chance to quick travel to some of the different areas in the world. Using this opportunity, I decided to take a trip to the Shire and have a drink at the same places that were scenes in the book/movie … though I think the game is currently set in The Two Towers.
The Ivy Bush’s standard ale is the Thistleberry Brew. Like most of the beers in Middle-Earth, it is not the kind of beer that will hinder your character’s abilities.
I will say the Ivy Bush has a nice atmosphere and I would like to see more events happen at inns. After all, a lot of heroes in the fantasy genre will meet the inn.
