Playstation Launches Brewmaster in 2022
The Brewers Journal
Playstation announced the launch of their new Brewmaster simulator game coming to the gaming world in 2022. This homebrewing simulator game will allow gamers to take control of all aspects of brewing beer from beginning to end, allowing them to learn authentic brewing techniques. The game is geared towards anyone who’s interested in brewing from beginner to expert levels.
Brewmaster is not only a simulated game but built on a chemistry simulation, and the team’s deep understanding of real-life fermentation processes. Brewmaster will have users experimenting with fundamental hops, grains and yeasts as well as a range of other real-world ingredients that can be used to create brews.
The game will include story-led Brewmaster mode which will teach brewing techniques while teaching gamers about the different set of beer styles. Users will be able to enter friendly competitions, progress from small equipment to a luxurious brewer’s paradise or enter Creative mode which unlocks everything to allow for creative freedom.
By the end of the game, users will have learned things like how to brew a chocolate Imperial Stout with a specific ABV, a gently hazy wheat beer, a malt-led traditional best, salty gose beer, a fruity lambic plus more.
A lawyer, who had a wife and 12 children, needed to move because his rental agreement was terminated by the owner, who wanted to reoccupy the home.
When he said he had 12 children, no one would rent a home to him because they felt that the children would destroy the place. He couldn’t say he had no children because he couldn’t lie (as we all know, lawyers cannot, and do not lie).
So he sent his wife for a walk to the cemetery with 11 of their kids. He took the remaining one with him to see rental homes with the real estate agent. He loved one of the homes and the price was right.
The agent asked:” How many children do you have?”
He answered: “Twelve.”
The agent asked, “Where are the others?”
The lawyer, with his best courtroom sad look, answered, “They’re in the cemetery with their mother.”
MORAL: It’s not necessary to lie; one has only to choose the right words.
Floor manager Cheryl has been busy keeping your Bushwakker clean in a different way. Rather than sanitizing the tables and chairs, keeping our beautiful 100 year old hardwood floors spic and span is part of the current takeout plan.
