if you read the ref card it explains what to do about running offline,
its under requirements and offline mode?

From the Manual/card with the game
Offline mode will not be available and an internet connection will be required if
1 - you do not select the "Remember my password" option in the Login screen
2 - you choose to login as a different user
3 - You check "don't save account information on this computer" On the Steam account settings
I would suggest your problem is caused by one of these.
