Life has somewhat calmed down for Gordy and his friends since stopping Esmeralda from overthrowing B.R.E.W. (Board of Ruling Elixirists Worldwide). Because of his potion-mixing skills, Gordy is working on becoming an Elixirist. While concocting his potions, Gordy goes into a hypnotic state or “Blind Batching” and unknowingly creates some destructive brews. As a result, Gordy’s mother loses her job at B.R.E.W., and its Chamber President puts a warrant out for Gordy’s arrest. Meanwhile, Gordy’s grandfather, Mezzarix, teams up with a new evil order that wants to destroy B.R.E.W. and take the Vessel, a chalice that gives B.R.E.W its power. After B.R.E.W’s headquarters is annihilated by Mezzarix’s new gang, Gordy and his family leave to protect the Vessel. However, a friend in their ranks betrays everyone by joining Mezzarix and taking the Vessel. Fleeing with their lives, Gordy and his family go into hiding.
