Beerfest

"Prepare for the ultimate chug of war."

During a trip to Germany to scatter their grandfather's ashes, German-American brothers Todd and Jan discover Beerfest, the secret Olympics of downing stout, and want to enter the contest to defend their family's beer-guzzling honor. Their Old Country cousins sneer at the Yanks' chances, prompting the siblings to return to America to prepare for a showdown the following year.

Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • The final scene with the message "Coming Soon - Potfest" was confirmed by Broken Lizard as a joke to make this film have an open-ended feel. The troupe said there has been fan support to create the sequel, which might be made as an animated film.
  • Movie Goof (audio/visual unsynchronized): When the crowd is chanting "Das Boot" in the first Das Boot challenge, their lips do not sync with the "Das Boot" chant on the soundtrack.
  • The shape of the final beer mug is in the shape of a big boot. Everybody refers to it as "Das Boot", that means "the boat" in German. However, it also refers to the actor Jürgen Prochnow, famous for acting in the legendary German movie Das Boot.
  • Beerfest was inspired by Broken Lizard's experiences at Colgate University, as well as a spontaneous "boat race" drinking contest at a beer festival between the comedy troupe members and Australians during the promotion of Super Troopers. The names of some of the characters in Beerfest are taken from classmates and fraternity brothers at Colgate University, including the nickname "Landfill" and a brief mention of "Tommy Malarky". After the German cast members completed their final day of filming, the American and German cast competed in another boat race; the Broken Lizard team won two out of three games.
