"The only thing better than a little beer is more beer!"
—Combo card description

The Beer Hat is a combo weapon in Dead Rising 2, Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record. It is created by combining a construction hat with beer.

Unlike most health items, the Beer Hat can be used multiple times to restore health, but the two-drink limit for alcoholic beverages still applies. The Beer Hat does not receive a bonus from the Health 1 or Health 2 magazines.

This combo weapon is described as:

"Portable heath! Unfortunately if you drink too much you'll start vomiting. Less unfortunate: Zombies can slip on the vomit."[1]

  • With a maximum restoration of 20 health blocks, the Beer Hat effectively has the biggest health gain of any food item.
    • This is offset by being a combo weapon, requiring multiple uses to restore health, and the need for the Drinking magazine or the Sports Skills Pack to avoid vomiting.
  • While worn, the Beer Hat will appear in cutscenes.
