Your exploration in that direction is blocked by a big pile of crates labeled "MISC. BOOZE". You're gonna have to deal with them if you want to make any progress.
You spend a while carefully and gently smashing the crates and ransacking their contents.
With +20 Hot Damage:
You hold your <weapon> against the crates until they burst into flames. They are consumed almost instantly -- hope there was nothing valuable in there!
- If you smash the crates, you will obtain 3 bottles of booze.
- Choosing "Burn the crates" does not consume an adventure.
