Discover the ultimate celebration of craft beer and master the art of homebrewing in a new Brewmaster demo, available to download today on Steam.
Available for a limited-time-only and included as part of next week’s Steam Next Fest, the demo gives Steam players an early look at Brewmaster’s beer brewing experience, experimenting with a range of ingredients and equipment, and using the in-game recipe system to try their hand at making beers. Complete two jobs, try a story stage, and use Brewmaster’s unique in-game tasting sequence to discover what kind of beer you’ve created.
Developer Auroch Digital today also announced a new partnership with Next Glass, the leading global provider of software, eCommerce solutions, content, and experiences in the beverage alcohol industry, that will see beer enthusiast brands Untappd, BeerAdvocate, and Hop Culture all feature in the final version of Brewmaster. BeerAdvocate and Hop Culture will both appear as the sponsor of the competition and providers of a themed job, with additional cosmetic glasses for players to unlock, while Untappd will provide in-game ratings for player-brewed beers. Brewmaster game badges will also appear in the Untappd app.
Kenny Gould, Founder of Hop Culture, will also join the Brewmaster team for a special Livestream during Steam Next Fest to dive deeper into the game and discuss the partnership. Tune in to learn more about decorating your brewing space, how you’ll take on and complete jobs, and pick up some great brewing tips for your own Brewmaster journey. Plus, a special ‘Beer and Technology Panel’ featuring Justin Hawke, Head Brewer, and owner of Moor Beer Company, Kenny Gould, and the Brewmaster team will also be available to stream during Steam Next Fest, where the two experts will discuss beer culture and the technological advancements to brewing beer.
“We’re thrilled to have partnered with Next Glass for the full release of Brewmaster, and for Steam players to try their hand at authentic beer brewing with today’s demo,” said Jemima Crow, Marketing and Communications Director at Auroch Digital. “We’re focused on making the game an accessible yet deep simulation of homebrewing, and we hope today’s partnership announcement will further immerse players in the world of Brewmaster when it launches later this year.”
“Because Auroch Digital knocked Mars Horizon out of the park, we knew Brewmaster was going to be something special,” added Kenny Gould, Founder of Hop Culture. “Our work with them over the last year and a half proved the case — the game is as close to the brewhouse that you can get without getting spent grain on your boots.”
