In the last prototype game that I played at UnPub 3, I joined Chris Kirkman and Ben Rosset in a three-player round of Ben's "Brewmasters." I have to say, this game is neck-and-neck with "Post Position" for my favorite game of all of those that I played at UnPub. Players represent presidents of microbreweries, and the goal is to score the most points by producing beer. Beer options include basic, tried-and-true recipes like porter, stout, and ale, while other more exotic concoctions like "pumpkin spice ale" score more points per unit brewed. Players need to manage not only the acquisition of ingredients but the throughput of the brewing operation, from storage to fermenting to bottling to shipping.
