Welcome to The Obnoxious Pepper Pub!
Many works of fiction have incorporated into their world the existence of beverages or drinks – liquids made for popular consumption - which may create a sense of the world in which the story takes place,
and in some cases may serve to advance the plot of the story. These products may be fictional brands which serve as a stand in for brand names, and in that capacity may be a vessel for mockery of the marketing culture associated with brand name products (e.g., Duff Beer from The Simpsons; Buzz Beer from The Drew Carey Show).
In science fiction, beverages from alien races may enhance the sense of a futuristic society (e.g. Romulan Ale in Star Trek).
While there are many fictional liquids that can be consumed, fictional liquid medicines and magical potions
(such as the liquid that causes Alice to shrink in Alice in Wonderland) may not be widely available for common consumption, or may simply not be described as being used for that purpose,
and thus would not be considered "beverages" at all.
