Many games on Steam, especially those in Early Access, often have different builds available.
How to select and play with them is explained here.
It's very simple:

  1. Right click on the name of the game
  2. Click on Properties.
  3. Click on Betas
  4. In the drop-down menu that appears, you can select a beta version, if available.
    Make sure the version is compatible with your server!
  5. For some betas it is necessary to enter a code.
    The required input field can be found below the drop-down menu.
  6. Steam should now update the game to the selected beta.
    If not, start the game. Steam should now update the game.
