you don't have all the needed ports and swift-travel routes it will take longer.

The following route will take you around Eriador picking up the fake drinks for
the Ale Association quests and delivering them to the various NPCs. When it
says Ride that means ride your mount. PORT means use a Return-To
skill. Swift means use Swift-Travel route from stable master. Travel means
use normal stable route.

When delivering you need to talk to the NPC 3
times. The first time you will turn in the AA quest. Talk a second time to pick
up the IL quest and one last time to turn it in. (Both the IL and AA "delivery" repeatables can be picked up in a central location (any Festival location). However, you cannot have BOTH quests for a particular "target" NPC in your quest log at the same time. So how to do all 22 at once? The IL quests are available at the centralized location, BUT they are also available directly from the "target" NPC. So, you simply pick up ONLY the 11 AA quests from the Festival location (i.e. Party Tree in Hobbitton) at once before starting. Then, at each “target” NPC, you first complete the AA quest, than accept the IL quest and complete it right there.)

In order to get Kindred with both the AA and IL factions simultaneously, simply stop the repeatables quests when you are Kindred with one faction and within 1,200 Rep of Kindred with the other. Then, simply complete the Challenge (“pub crawl”) for whichever faction is not Kindred.

This can be a very fast Rep grind! After you do the Initiation intro quest for both factions, you will need about 75,000 Rep to get Kindred status with either faction. If you want kindred with both, you can earn both in 12 days (11 if you "even" out the +Rep by doing only 4 of the 6 AA "other" dailies). If you only care about IL, it’s 6 days; and for only AA, it’s 5 days!!!!
