The Plot

Jan and Todd Wolfhouse learn at their grandfather’s funeral that they must go to Munich during Oktoberfest to disperse his ashes at the Theresienwiese. Family tradition. The brothers’ quarrel destroys an Oktoberfest tent. At Baron Wolfgang von Wolfhausen’s subterranean drinking game tournament, Beerfest, they learn the von Wolfhausens are related to the Wolfhouses. The German side fiercely rejects the family ties, saying Johann was a stable youngster who stole “the best beer in the world” and fled away with his prostitute mother, Great Gam Gam, the brothers’ great-grandmother. Because Germans made fun of their ancestors, Jan and Todd are furious and challenge them to a drinking game. Everyone laughs at the losers. Jan gets hit in the eye when Wolfgang throws them their grandfather’s ashes.

Jan and Todd pledge to get back at the Germans, so they return to Colorado and establish an American Beerfest squad with binge drinker Phil “Landfill” Krundle, Jewish scientist Charlie “Fink” Finklestein, and male prostitute Barry Badrinath. Great Gam Gam isn’t told. Jan and Todd learn that their grandfather didn’t steal the family beer recipe during training. He was the heir to a Bavarian brewery. The team makes Schnitzengiggle Beer, which amazes them.

When the German squad receives Schnitzengiggle in the mail, the Wolfhausen clan travels to the U.S. After arguing with Jan and Todd, the Wolfhausens claimed their restaurant had health problems to throw them out of business. Because of the decline in his lab work, Fink is fired. Cherry, Great Gam Gam’s carer, handed the Germans the beer recipe, Landfill learns. Cherry puts him into a vat of yeasty beer after he beats him. Yeast raises the beer, drowning him. Jan later discovers Landfill’s body. The team stops playing because they suspect Landfill killed himself to save his wife’s marriage.

After the funeral, Great Gam Gam says she knew about Beerfest. After her speech, everyone but Barry changes their thoughts. Barry can’t participate because a table tennis racquet went up his anus years ago. He was terrified. Great Gam Gam encourages Barry to move on. This convinces Barry to join. Gil, Landfill’s twin brother from the South, joins the group soon after. Gil drinks a lot of beer like his brother, therefore the squad calls him “Landfill”

In Germany, the squad sneaks in with a wooden keg. When they arrive, they’re booed. Jan and Todd can join because they resemble Beerfest’s founders. The mob thinks they’re von Wolfhausens. Cherry’s mockery of Gil’s brother’s death in the finals (boot line chug) breaks him down and lets the Germans win. Jan lets the Germans double or lose their money. Germans tell Jan they have the recipe and don’t need a rematch. Wolfgang kills Cherry after Fink reveals that she simply stole a low-carb strawberry beer recipe. Fink coaches the team to victory when one of the von Wolfhausens knocks off his yarmulke. Germans lose by one drop because their anchor doesn’t finish “Das Boot.”

Albuquerque, New Mexico, is where the movie Beerfest was shot. Jay Chandrasekhar said when asked where the idea for the movie came from “We were at a beer garden in Australia while wearing our police uniforms. We went on stage and challenged the top five drinkers in the room to a chug off. The place blew up. We were winning, but when Paul Soter started drinking, we quickly lost. Then there were arm wrestling matches. Then Steve Lemme made fun of Russell Crowe, who is a national treasure, and we had to be led out by security. We thought that movie would be fun. The drinking beer part.”


The movie Beerfest came out in theatres on August 25, 2006.

On home media, you can watch the theatrical version or an unrated version. The version without a rating is ten minutes longer and has eight more short scenes.

Critical Response

Based on 107 reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, the movie has a 40% approval rating, with an average rating of 5.04/10. The general opinion of critics on the website is that “Beerfest has some funny jokes, but it’s too long and the pace is too uneven to work as a coherent comedy.” Based on the reviews of 25 critics, the film has a weighted average score of 46 out of 100 on Metacritic. This means that the reviews are “mixed or average.”

David Jenkins of Time Out magazine said that it “appears to have been conceived on the back of a beermat, and its trashy direction, nonexistent plot, and dismal comic mugging would seem to suggest that preparations went no further.” The New York Times’ Jeannette Catsoulis disagreed: “Best seen while drunk, Beerfest is stupid, tasteless, and irrepressibly good-natured, in other words, a frat-house classic.”

Planned Sequel

Even though Broken Lizard said at the end of Beerfest that Potfest is “coming soon,” this was just a joke to get attention. They have said that fans liked the name a lot and that Broken Lizard might make an animated movie with the same name. In July 2012, Broken Lizard member Jay Chandrasekhar said that Smokefest might actually happen and that Willie Nelson, Cheech from Cheech & Chong, and Snoop Dogg had all agreed to be in the movie. Release date was set in June 2013. In 2014, a live-action movie was made. CW Seed will air a Beerfest TV show in 2016. As of October 2020, there had been no more news about the project’s future, so until further notice, it is still in development hell.
