Microbrew is a big game in a tiny tin - perfect for the pub table...

In this worker placement/puzzle game, players must serve customers an artisanal brew based on their personal taste specifications, because hipsters are ridiculously picky.

The recipe takes time to ferment, so forward planning is needed, as your opponent may steal your customer while you're desperately trying to get that IPA from the barrel to the bar.

You can always choose to serve them a generic beer and save your hard-earned cash for advertising instead, increasing customer footfall and promoting your business.

Microbrew was originally created for the 2017 BoardGameGeek Mint Tin Competition and won 1st place Overall and Most Innovative Mechanism.  It also won second place for best-written rules, so it's easy to understand and play.

I'm not usually a fan of portable games, but this packs a big gaming punch in a tiny tin.  The artwork is reminiscent of role-management app games, with just a hint of quirkiness.  It can only be played with two players, but an extra tin will expand that to include four people in the game.  The Kickstarter finishes at the end of October, with plenty of stretch goals and upgrades included.  Get yours here.
