GoT 01: Bottom Cutter / Terraforming Mars

For our first episode, we begin by pouring ourselves a tall glass of Bottomcutter - an imperial IPA from the Bale Breaker Brewing Company in Washington. After a quick taste, we jump right in and offer our thoughts about Terraforming Mars - a card-drafting engine-builder from Stronghold Games. Last but not least, we finish things off with some short banter about what's brewing in the world of tabletop.

But enough of this reading stuff! Grab yourself a stool, press play and relax as we pour you this deliciously frosty episode of the Gaming on Tap Podcast!

Double dry-hopped with homegrown Yakima hops, Bottomcutter Imperial IPA may be light in color but is packed with citrus and pine hop character. This Imperial IPA is brewed to finish dry, perfect for the combination of Citra®, Simcoe®, and Ekuanot™ hops. As the bottomcutter is a tractor that leads the topcutter through the fields during harvest, this beer will lead to a new appreciation for Yakima Valley’s hops.

In the 2400s, mankind begins to terraform the planet Mars. Giant corporations, sponsored by the World Government on Earth, initiate huge projects to raise the temperature, the oxygen level, and the ocean coverage until the environment is habitable. In Terraforming Mars, you play one of those corporations and work together in the terraforming process, but compete for getting victory points that are awarded not only for your contribution to the terraforming, but also for advancing human infrastructure throughout the solar system, and doing other commendable things.
