  • Why did you feel you have to like beer to own/manage a process that makes beer in a game?? What if you owned/managed a factory that manufactured women’s shoes? Would you need to like wearing women’s shoes to enjoy a game based on the concept?

  • this doesn't give you a goal in the beginning either like Caverna, you don't like Caverna for that yet you are okay with this?

  • I was a backer and this game just works. I brew beer so it was a no-brainier, but even if I didn't like the theme, the game is just that good that I wouldn't mind. The mechanics and tight control with the random setup allows me to go for new strategies each time. So far I have yet to plant but plan to next week with the gaming group. I only hope five players doesn't kill it. So far I've been playing two and three player games. Thanks for another great run-through, helped me to justify not buying my beer kits in the past after backing 🙂

  • Good recap. I also, have never really liked the taste of beer. There are very few beers, which I am even able to finish one bottle, before the taste tuns me away. However, the concept of brewing beer, has always been fascinating to me…especially when considering it is one of the oldest "artisan crafts" around, and my being a history buff. For that reason alone, I find this game to be very enjoyable. Uwe Rosenberg's endorsement is a great testimony.

  • can this game be playable for casual gamers? it looks fairly involved and seems like first timers will get lost in all that minutiae

  • I don't drink beer either and wasn't previously interested in the game. Watching this runthrough sold it to me, though I'm not going to buy it until I find a new job.

  • Bought the game after watching your runthrough. I was looking for an Agricola like economic simulation worker placement game that wasn't as intimidating for my gaming group. We hadn't played any heavy euros. This seemed to hit the sweet spot and indeed, everyone loved it. Can't wait to play it more. Thanks so much!

  • I love trying different craft/micro beer and of course love board games, so this may be right up my alley. It's funny, I own and have played Agricola many times, but the theme of farming just never truly grabbed me. I'll still play it because some of my friends love it, and I have to admit the game plays so smoothly. However this game appears to play similarly but with a much more interesting theme…at least for me. Thanks for another great run through.

  • I'm surprised the theme is such an issue for you, since you like both Viticulture and Vinhos. I know beer and wine are different, but they're all about creating alcoholic drinks using processes.

  • Thanks for the play through and review on this one! I am a beer lover, home brewer and board game fan. This has been on my buy list for a while and will be moving to the top based on this video series.

  • I'm curious how you would compare it with Piwne Imperium you played a while back.

  • I love Agricola, and I am a massive Uwe fan but me and Mrs B much prefer this theme, but we are both craft beer fans. There is a video by Ben Rosset showing how to set the game up using the bags involved. It does make the game much easier to get to the table.

    People complaining about setup of this must never have played Fields Of Arle. 😀

  • Lmao @ your attempt at finding Ben Rosset's name. Designer who shall remain nameless… Oops, here it is. You're a character Rich!

  • Richard, what is the advantage of the raised edges on your game table? Seems like this would make gaming more uncomfortable always having to lean on the edge like that.

  • Saw another reviewer that didn't like this game, but I'm glad I caught your review too! My boyfriend and I (as well as a few friends) love games and love trying different craft beers, so I believe we'll give this game a try! The game play and mechanics look really interesting and fun – keep the reviews coming – love them 😀

  • Ben Rosset's name is shown in a clever way on the cover of the box. Plus, I actually think, at least versus its peers, that box image is incredible. I wish more developers would be creative in this fashion.

  • I've been looking into picking up a few Euros, as it's an avenue of gaming I've not really explored – but is beginning to pique my interest more and more as I've gotten deeper into the hobby. For me, the theme of this one gets a big thumbs up, and my friends and girlfriend will also enjoy it. But would people recommend this as an 'entry level' Euro – for want of a better term?
