Deus Ex Wiki

Alcoholic drinks, including beer, wine, and spirits, are consumable items in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.


Drinking alcohol recovers health at the cost of impaired vision. If health is already full, consumption will temporarily raise it above the maximum. Alcohol functions similarly to the HypoStim Injector and Painkillers, except that the health recovery or boost is lower and usage results in temporarily blurred vision.

It takes six to seven consumption of beer to fully restore Adam's life bar, as opposed to four painkillers. The only exception is the Mramor brand of beer, which requires only five cans to bring him back to full health.

It takes about five bottles of spirits to fully restore his health, with the only notable exceptions being Nye's Rye whiskey, which only requires four bottles, and Old Man's Prestige, which is equally effective, but much rarer, and far more valuable for selling.

The "drunk" effect can be canceled by triggering the Icarus Landing system, firing the Typhoon, or punching through a wall.

Wine Wine DXMD item With flowery overtones and what some describe as an oily aftertaste, you might think this vintage has no place in a fine well cellar... But it's from Provence, so you've got to include it. Lavende de Machiniste. For show.

  • Svobody Beer also refers to a location. "Svoboda" means "freedom" in Czech. "Svobody Beer" is supposed to mean "Freedom Beer" or "Beer of Freedom." However, the proper Czech term would be "Pivo svobody" or "Svobodné pivo".
  • The description for Nye's Rye is a reference to William Sanford Nye, popularly known as Bill Nye the Science Guy, who also appeared on the American TV show Dancing with the Stars.
  • Akuma Shochu may be based on Kirin's Takuma Shochu. The name "Akuma" may be a reference to the character Akuma from the Street Fighter series, and the description "combination punch to the head and kick to the gut" may be a reference to combos used in such fighting games. The term "Akuma" (悪魔) means "Devil" in Japanese.
  • In the description for Welsh Whiskey, lechyd da! Ble mae'r toiled? means "Cheers! Where is the toilet?"
  • The "Dai-Taiga" beer seems to have a typo in its name on the cans; the label reads "Dai-Taga."  "Taiga" 大河 means "great river" in Japanese. "Dai" 大 also means "large."
  • The bottle texture for the Kylmyster Canadian Whiskey reads "Kylmister" rather than "Kylmyster." The term "myster" may be based on the real-world Jägermeister brand, however, the full name is likely to be a reference to Lemmy Kilmister, the whiskey-loving frontman-bassist of Motörhead.
