Just in time for Monday’s Steam Next Fest, craft beer brewing simulator Brewmaster dropped its new demo today and revealed new partnerships with beverage tech and beer enthusiast brands. Brewmaster is the first authentic beer brewing simulator launching later this year on all platforms.
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 more about 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.
