    A lot of people don't know how to hit the timer correctly for buying Bottle of Beer at Bit's n Bob's. This guide is for those people.
    (includes illustrations and is getting updated with more images soon)

    Preface:
    Effect
    Increases nerve by 1 and booster cooldown by 1 hour.
    Buy Price
    $10
    Sell Price
    $5
    Bottle of Beer used to have a value of around $1,700 a few months ago, but someone (I'm not taking names) started hoarding and inflating their prices, due to which it has a value of around $3,500 currently, hence it has now become a very effective method to make money and that has lead to it being unobtainable other than for the first few seconds after restocking.

    Restock time:
    Bottle of Beer restocks every quarter of an hour, i.e., at xx:00, xx:15, xx:30 and xx:45. For example, the time of taking the pictures was 05:38:05; hence the next restock time was at 05:45:00. Since it gets sold out quickly, you need to have an accurate clock to help you. Torn provides us with a simple and accurate clock already so no need to use other websites.

    (Click that small clock symbol marked in the picture)

    (Now you can see the accurate time in TCT)

    Bit's n Bob's:
    Upon visiting Bit's n Bob's you will see an interface similar to this:-

    (You won't see those red and green triangles if you don't have torntools enabled in your browser)

    Wait for the next restock time, and then keep reloading as fast as possible until you see that the Bottle of Beer have restocked. It is a personal tip that you should start reloading after 3 seconds from the minute mark.
    After reloading at the correct moment, it should look a bit like this:-

    (For minors: Yeah, that's called Beer, don't drink it until you have the appropriate age)

    (You need to be quick while buying it)

    (Having the fill max button from torntools helps to enter it quicker)

    (And that's it!)

    Unsuccessful Attempt:
    Did your internet lag, you reloaded the page an extra time or some other reason resulted you to click the buy button after the Bottles went out of stock? Don't worry and don't close the tab you were on, just press the little cross and wait for the next restocking time and go full throttle on the buy button instead of the refresh page button. If you want to do something else in your browser/torn instead of waiting, do it in another tab. Remember to come back before it restocks though.

    (Don't worry if you get this result)

    (Press the x button, click buy and repeat until you get those Bottles)

    The 100 Limit:
    You can only buy a total of 100 items from NPC stores daily. Please keep this in mind while entering the number of Bottles you want to buy if you had or will be buying an item from one of the NPC stores in torn city. (This doesn't include items bought abroad or the Halloween Basket from the Sweet Shop).

    That's it. I'll keep updating this thread as much as I can, if you have other tips players can keep in mind, please mention them below. If I have made a mistake (Grammatical / Factual) somewhere in the thread, please mention it. Don't forget to give it a like as well.

    The part about leaving your tab open after an unsuccessful attempt is the best XD. Was so stoke when I found this one out myself :P. Magicians should never show their whole tricks or else they'll be out of a job mate! Nonetheless, great guide. Nice visual support. R+

    I came here thinking there was some first time trick to get it, but no of course not It just tells you how buy an item from a store. 

    It really all depends on the lag. I personally don't see the need for this, and like the other guy said with his magician comment it's already rediculous to try and get beer and now it'll be even worse and not even worth the effort for the hassle of ìt. THANKS

    I haven't used the bare bones site or app in forever so I don't know if its changed, but if you still have to enter 100 manually, then I would say the TornTools part of this should be emphasized more and really is the only useful piece of info, everything else is what I though was common knowledge. But I guess it's like common sense, you think everyone has it but there is still a bunch of people that literally have no clue, which is why you need a tutorial for dummies. You could do everything else in this guide but if you don't have an app or script that has the 100 pre-loaded I can't imagine you ever having a successful purchase.

    I've never been successful refreshing before the 5second mark. If I do 3 secs, then I'm refreshing twice and not getting any beer most likely. Do you have any data that backs up your 3 sec instruction?

    First of all, thanks for your concern.

    I didn't emphasise much on the torn tools part because even though the plugin is really handy, many players don't use it for some reason or the other. Typing in 100 manually removes the window of opportunity for buying out the beer in the first try, so a second try is needed. In the second try, you should buy the beer only and not reload the page.

    I did some firsthand research and found out the precise time at which beer restocks. If you consider your reload lag + your buying lag, getting it shouldn't be difficult.

    For example if your reload lag is 5 seconds and your buying lag is 1 second, and considering the precise time at which beer restocks to be as xx:xx:05; you should reload the page at xx:xx:00 and then buy it at the next chance, that is, keep ramming the buy button around xx:xx+15:04 to get it.

    I hope my explanation was clear and if not, drop me a chat, I don't check forums very often. The precise time I used here isn't correct, but I can let you know it if you message or chat me, else I guess I'll be making life tougher for you guys.
