So, yesterday I read Pearl of Pandaria and was a bit surprised to see that Lili was buying, brewing, and drinking beer throughout the book. By the time the book ended I had come to the conclusion that Pandaren drink regardless of age.
Then, while questing in Valley of the Four Winds, LiLi specifically asked me to sample grains for Chen's brew because she had never had a drink in her life.
Is this just a small mistake on Blizzard's part? Or did I read the book wrong?
