Good morning all, and welcome to a special Weekend Dev Diary for Europa Universalis IV.

We noticed a lot of feedback in the previous dev diary that people were keen to know what direction EUIV is taking going forward from Rule Britannia. For various reasons, we do not immediately reveal what the focus of the following expansion and accompanying patch will be, but in the face of such overwhelming feedback, we've decided that this time we shall spill the beans early

Europa Universalis IV: Breweries of the World is currently in development with heavy focus on the nations and regions which have contributed most to global society with their various tipples. Focus regions in the 1.26 Champagne Update will be:

  • Ireland - Some new provinces and special "Guinness" province modifiers
  • Scotland - Special trade mechanics specifically with the flow of Whisky
  • Bavaria - "Purity" laws can be passed to strengthen your government and grants new Reinheitsgebot CB on inferior producers.
  • Belgium - When Hoegaarden desire grows too high, Belgium will spawn and fight a bloody war of independence.
  • Mexico - Colonial nations in Mexico can be pacified by allowing them to keep their own Corona, although high tariffs can lead to a standoff between master and colony.
The release date of Breweries of the World is currently TBA but upon release, we ask that you all game responsibly.

Ireland - Some new provinces and special "Guinness" province modifiers
Point of order: Arthur Guinness was a Unionist, opposed to both Irish Home Rule and any notion of Irish independence ;)

(This is what April 1 posts should be like :) Nice work.)

That is certainly an interesting development focus. I implore you to develop this further. Cheers to all weekend workers! Although did Ireland need any more provinces?

Jokes aside, PDX should introduce beer and/or alcohol as a trade good
