What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We aim to build Taphouse VR to be the perfect drunken dwarf bar simulator for virtual reality. With the valuable feedback provided by the community we can succeed in our goal - over time, we will be adding new taverns, drink recipes and an even crazier cast of dwarves into the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We're aiming early 2018 for the full release, depending mostly on your feedback and support.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We've got a great roadmap lined up with fun content, including more minigames for the bar. Basically, the more community feedback we get, the more we can slap into the game. Some planned features include new locations to bartend in, new drinks and more recipes to mix.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game includes three different taverns with varying difficulty and a really awesome cast of drunk dwarves to interact with. The dwarves drink, get drunk, fight and order recipes. There's two game modes in each tavern - Normal and Sandbox. The Normal mode is a timed mode where you need to make the most money and get a rating. In Sandbox, it's like an endless mode. Most of the content is implemented so the Early Access period is for spit shine polish and gathering your thoughts on the game.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“No - the game will remain free. Paid content down the line is planned depending on how you like the experience.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Keep in touch with us in the Steam Community forums - we'll take your feedback and apply it as best we can. We have some really cool stuff to show you from Taphouse VR as we make more content, but we'll implement features and improvements the community wants to the best of our ability.”

About This Game


In Taphouse VR, you are the bartender! Pour glasses, mugs and shots of all kinds of beverages to thirsty dwarves. Mix and match recipes to make drinks that dazzle your patrons. Be careful with your customers - some will get angry if served the wrong thing or if you take your time. Get ready to break up some fights as well! With an exciting cast of drunk dwarves and a cast of lovely drinking holes to work in you'll get to experience what it truly feels like to be a tavernkeep. And when your mind starts to wander, play the slot machine or throw out some troublemakers!


  • 🍺 Use your Vive motion controllers to pour drinks to glasses, operate the taps and to send away customers too drunk to stand!
  • 🍷 All kinds of drinks like tap beer, rum, long drink, cola, milk, energy drinks, vodka and more to pour for your thirsty customers!
  • 🍹 Make recipe drinks to earn more tips - Cuba Libre, Tequila Sunrise, White Russian...we've got quite the collection!
  • 🥂 Mess around the counter with plenty of stuff to fiddle with, including your paying patrons!
  • 💲 Earn gold by being fast, efficient and careful when serving - spend your hard earned extra coins on the slot machine and win big!
  • 🤔 Intelligent drunkard AI knows to start fights, argue over the slot machines and drink until they pass out!
  • 👌 Two game modes: do a real shift in Bartender Mode or go with Sandbox Mode if you feel like playing around (or showing off)!

Note: While Taphouse VR is a perfect entry point for VR, we highly recommend it for older audiences. There's lots of alcohol, dwarves passing out and even some mild fisticuffs about - VR responsibly.
