Moonshine is a consumable item in Fallout: New Vegas.


Moonshine is an alcoholic beverage which has a more pronounced effect on the user's personality than other types, giving a greater boost to Charisma. Like other alcohol, it raises Strength, but lowers Intelligence for the duration of its effects.

Moonshine's effects stack with other alcohol types. Unlike other drinks, its effects are not modified by high Survival skill.


This item can be crafted by the player after learning the recipe through dialogue with Cass.

  • Moonshine doesn't have a flag set for medicine or food, which means that it does not scale with any skill and therefore the effects won't raise.
  • It is valued at only 20 caps, lower than its cost in Fallout 3. Moonshine is worth substantially less than its components.
