Using mechanics similar to rummy, players combine cards to
brew six beer styles including
ale, stout and Belgian. In doing so
players will use some of the 90 cards representing real beer ingredients.
The game is influenced heavily by event cards, which players draw after brewing beer. The event deck represents some of the real triumphs and tragedies that have taken place in the microbrewery world. Watch out for the green scrubie card, which will cause you to lose a turn because you have to take apart your heat exchanger to find it. The event deck also contains beer festivals and the dreaded Big Breweries card.
The player with the most beer festival trophies and crowd
markers wins the game. The game is great for two to five players and generally takes less than an hour to play.
As brewers, beer fans and others have noted, the game captures the fun and excitement of brewing. It makes the perfect gift for yourself or the beer lover in your life!
