Brewmaster: Beer Brewing Simulator

Share the love...

I’m a big fan of simulation games and over the last year, I’ve built cities, inhabited alien worlds, driven buses and trains, fixed cars, mowed lawns and fished the north Atlantic.
But one thing I’ve never done is create my own beer, all those barrels, mixing the yeast and waiting a lifetime for it to ferment isn’t my idea of a real-world hobby, but give me the chance to do that in the virtual world, and that’ a different story.

Brewmaster was released on the 27th of October and has a very respectable 5 stars on developed by Auroch digital (the developers behind the fantastic Mars Horizon, Megaquarium and The Colonists), there’s no doubt it’s in safe hands.

So what do you do with Brewmaster, as with any simulation game, you start at the bottom, mixing up your first creation, and slowly improving your recipes until you start getting great feedback, as you progress further in your beer-making journey, you can customise the name and labels o your beers, as well as take photographs to showcase your new beverage.

I’m always looking forward to the next intriguing simulation game, and Beermaster certainly checks the box, you can download it now from the Xbox store for £14.99

There’s the official run-down straight below the following trailer.
