Design the Look and Taste of Your Dream Beer in ‘Brew Town’ Craft Beer Simulator from ‘Fist of Awesome’ and ‘Neon Horizon’ Developers

AppBox Media, responsible for Neon Horizon [Free] among many others, and Nicoll Hunt’s studio I Fight Bears, of Fist of Awesome [$ 0.99] and Maximum Car [Free] fame, are teaming up on something decidedly different for both developers. It’s a beer crafting simulation game called Brew Town, and it’s arriving on iOS and Android March 22nd. Like creating games in Game Dev Story, in Brew Town you’ll be responsible for creating new and interesting beers, then stocking and (hopefully) selling them to eager customers. As we all know how fun it is creating silly game types in Game Dev Story, I think Brew Town will take things to the next level with their robust custom bottle creator. Check it out and the rest of the game in this trailer.

This isn’t the first time we’ve done some brewin’ on our mobiles, as the excellent 2013 sim Fiz: Brewery Management Game offered a similar experience a few years back and is still a super fun game. Brew Town looks like it goes in a pretty different direction though, literally building all the various pieces of an actual brewing town, and of course the incredible level of customization for all your wacky beer ideas.

The developers’ own description sums up Brew Town quite well: “A tycoon game like no other, Brew Town is all about you crafting your way to success. Want to make an almond flavoured stout? Go right ahead. You’d rather have a caramel-nougat IPA with a space-themed label? Step right up. How about a chili-infused red ale with a bright orange bottle featuring a GIANT T-REX ON FIRE? Let’s just say you’ve come to the right place.” Given the previous work of all involved, I really can’t wait to get my hands on Brew Town. It’s scheduled to release next month on March 22nd for free, so get your taste buds ready. Until then you can find some more information as well as a bunch of awesome custom bottles at Brew Town’s official website.

This big-ass battery keeps your beer cold while powering 10 other devices


Backup batteries? Got ’em. Mobile charging stations? Pfft. I have enough devices for charging other devices that picking one to take to events has become a process all its own. What I don’t have, or didn’t have at least, was a mobile charging station that could keep my beer cold for half a day. River, by EcoFlow, changed all that. It’s not what you’d call practical, at least not in the sense that you can stow it in a pocket or backpack. After all, it’s about the size of a car battery and tips the scales at a whopping 11 pounds.…

Google is fixing its disastrous burger and beer emoji today with Android 8.1 release

We never expected the outrage over the design of a hamburger emoji to bubble up to the point where Google’s CEO had to personally intervene, but such is 2017. And today, our long cheese-on-bun global nightmare comes to an end with the public release of Android Oreo 8.1, which fixes the unappetizing glyph.

Android 8.1 also adds a new beer emoji, which no longer sees frothing foam inexplicably remain at the top of the mug after half the beer has been downed.

Here’s what the offending emoji looked like in 8.0:

Would you go to a joint like this? No.

Here are the much-improved new characters in 8.1:

Google’s new burger emoji now follows Microsoft’s approach of patty-cheese-tomato-lettuce. This is far more…
