Their contact brings them to a secret beer competition, the Beerfest", where they are offended by Baron Wolfgang von Wolfhausen and the German branch of their family that accuse their great-grandmother of being a prostitute and their grandfather of stealing an old recipe of the best beer in Germany. Jan and Todd returns to USA humiliated and decide to organize a beer team to dispute the next Beerfest. They join Landfill, Barry and Fink and train long the year to participate in the competition. When they find the lost recipe hidden in a dummy, they feel that their German relatives told the truth. But the team is ready for the tough dispute.

One of the funniest movies I've seen in a long time
26 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Beerfest was exactly what i was hoping for. After super troopers, Broken Lizard came out with a not that great movie Club Dread but now after seeing Beerfest i know they still have the comedy talent. Beerfest was the funniest movie i have seen since Old School or super troopers. It starts off kind of slow but when the brothers get a beer drinking team together and start the training, i don't think there has ever been anything funnier in a movie in the past few years. When it gets going, man non stop laughter. I was even crying because i was laughing so hard. Go and see it and trust me you will not regret those 9 dollars you spent at the theater!
