The movie revolves around a drinking game competition and incorporates humor, outrageous challenges, and drinking contests as its central theme. Throughout the film, there is a recurring reference to a drinking game called “Das Boot,” in which participants must drink from a large boot-shaped glass. This is a playful nod to the German co-star Jürgen Prochnow, who had previously starred in the well-known German film “Das Boot” (The Boat), adding an element of wordplay and intertextual humor to the movie. “Beerfest” is known for its over-the-top, raucous humor and its portrayal of an intense and fictionalized underground beer-drinking competition.

Beerfest Plot Summary

At their grandfather’s funeral in Germany, Jan and Todd Wolfhouse learn of a family tradition requiring them to travel to Munich’s Oktoberfest to spread their grandfather’s ashes. There, they accidentally cause a brawl and get involved in Beerfest, a secret drinking game tournament led by a relative, Baron Wolfgang von Wolfhausen. The Germans deny their family ties, insulting their ancestors, and challenge the brothers to a drinking game, which they lose.

Determined to seek revenge, the brothers recruit their friends and form an American Beerfest team. During their training, they discover their grandfather didn’t steal the family beer recipe but was the true heir to the family brewery. Armed with this knowledge, they create a remarkable beer, Schnitzengiggle.

The German team receives a bottle of Schnitzengiggle, prompting a confrontation. The Wolfhausens try to sabotage the brothers’ restaurant, Fink quits, and the team disbands after Landfill’s tragic drowning in a beer vat. They decide to compete after Great Gam Gam’s motivational speech.

In Germany, they gain entry to the competition by impersonating the Beerfest founders. After losing a round, they challenge the Germans to a rematch, revealing that the stolen recipe was for a low-carb strawberry beer. The intense final round ends in victory when the German team’s anchor fails to finish, leading to the Americans’ win.
