Delivering the goods is almost impossible on the EASIEST setting.

What the hell is wrong with this quest?

Trying to get beer from the beer tree, you already start off in the rough where on Brutal you will waste most of your time waiting for the kegs to regenerate.

On top of that, just simply accelerating damages the kegs on ANY difficulty

Top it off, there are only three smooth sections before it gets completely bumpy trying to drive on the beach, where even on the smooth you can't boost without the kegs exploding.

Braking to try and let the kegs regenerate? They explode.

If I can't finish it on the first go on EASY, how the hell can you actually complete this thing?

EDIT: Welp, just beat it in one go with ease, time to spare and even a huge cliff jump because it was stupidly easy. But only after turning off hi-fi mode.

Which is actually a rather serious bug in two ways: One: Hi-Fi is busted. Two: If you change settings DURING a mission, it WILL NOT SAVE and will restart as soon as you either restart the mission or leave it. I only realised it was turned back on when I double checked, but it took me several goes trying to turn the difficulty down while trying to do this quest.

It's a bug with the Hi-Fi sim setting, the physics are registering at twice the normal rate (or something), making the beer run mission much harder. Disable it in the game settings and the mission should be much easier.

I found it to be quite easy. Of course, I had to be more careful than when I played on the xbox.. but that just meant finding the smartest route and only using nitro on the roads. That left me plenty of time to navigate the beach without the speed boost, as even its mild bumps seem to suffice to blow up the kegs.

I found it a peace of cake, on medium with hi fi sim enabled :\ Just avoid the bumpy parts of the road. I wasn't even driving particularly carefully and I don't remember using the nitros at all. I hope they don't modify it as it's just the right difficulty.

I had a rough time with it too. The problem was worse with keyboard controls, but I was able to complete it using an Xbox 360 controller for better throttle control; accelerating with the keyboard is either pedal to the metal or nothing at all, which exacerbates the problem with the kegs taking damage while accelerating. (Hi-fi sim probably didn't help either.)
