Battle Of The Breweries has been causing a bit of a stir among the craft beer afficiandos for the last year or so, and they’ve finally opened it up for funding. It’s a card game that puts you in the driving seat of your favourite breweries! We got really excited when the lovely folks over at B.O.T.B. sent us information about their Kickstarter campaign and a pack of cards to get stuck into. Read on to find out more!
What Is It?
Battle Of The Breweries is a card game that officially partners with some of the worlds greatest breweries, to bring players a familiar and tangible experience. The information used on the cards within the game has been provided by the breweries themselves which lends a layer of accuracy not achieved by similar games.
In saying that, I’ve never come across a game quite like it. On the surface it appears to be a Top Trumps-style card game with some nifty artwork, but in reality it’s actually a fast-paced card game filled with rivalry and strategy…
And enough beer-nerdism to make a grown man cry!
How does it work? I’ll let B.O.T.B. explain :
“Each player has taken over as the co-owner of a brewery.
You’ve been tasked with stocking your new taproom with a list of the best beers available to you, as well as the beers that you know will go down well with the local crowd.
Sounds pretty simple, but it looks as though your rival breweries have also decided to do the same thing.
You’ll have to Battle, steal and trade your way to the top in order to be crowned the worlds most popular brewery!”
Having recently held their first B.O.T.B tournament during the Notts Craft Beer Week, B.O.T.B will be holding special tournaments around the country on release! They will also be adding an app in December! Meaning you can not only collect your cards but battle online!
The Breweries Involved
As mentioned, B.O.T.B. has partnered with some fantastic breweries (110 to be exact!!), with many more on the way. Like anyone else, I’m a little biased when it comes to my local breweries, but it’s great to see the likes of Northern Ireland’s Lacada Brewing being represented here.
