Try your hand at experimenting with hops, ingredients, and different brews that sell for the most in the Brewpub Simulator free playtest on Steam. 

The free playtest for the immersive simulator will last two weeks, where players can learn different crafting recipes, brew their very own mystery beers using random ingredients, and even try to sell their creations to customers for profit to further enhance their pub. You have officially inherited your grandfather's run-down brewery, and it is up to you to restore it to working order and brew your heart out. The brewery comes fully equipped with its own bar area that you can upgrade and decorate however you see fit to draw in those thirsty customers. 

Your grandfather's legacy must live on, as he was once a very successful brewery with the best watering hole in town. But alas, the big companies always win with their fancy marketing and speedy quick brewing machines. This has made the little guys suffer, but with you at the wheel, you can build this little brewery into a booming business once more.

Those who join in on the playtest will be able to play the game and give feedback directly to the developers through a survey. This helps them not only make a better game for the full release but also helps pinpoint any bugs they might have missed. Even though the game is currently in a playtest state, it still looks as though it has a massive amount of content to enjoy while you play through. Plus, there really isn't anything to lose, as it is completely free to join the playtest on Steam, and you get to help a developer improve their game which is pretty nifty. 

More so, if indie games are your cup of tea, you can join in on the GASP event, which means Games At Special Prices. This is an event for indie developers to band together to offer discounts, prologues, playtests and content to players to gain their interest in their games! All in all this is a great way to support the indie developer community, and most of the content is free to playtest or enjoy. 

If you would like to join the free playtest, head on over to the Brewpub Simulator Steam page, and select the "Join Playtest" option below the wishlist option.
