As this answer describes, there is a way to disable automatic updates for a game. If I choose to disable automatic updates, how do I check for updates for the game in Steam?

If you open up the game properties (right click the game in your Library) go to the "Local Files" tab, then select "Verify Integrity of Game Cache" it should force an update if one is available.

Steam game properties window, Local files, Verify Integrity of Game Cache
