Storyline

Edmund Blackadder is thrilled when his wealthy but puritanical relatives announce their desire to meet and discuss his inheritance. While planning a ingratiatingly spartan and fundamentalist dinner for them, he is summoned to court where he accidentally agrees to host a riotous drinking competition at his house on the same night.

Goofs

When Edmund is given the red wine, he opens the cupboard door and throws it in, spilling it all over the floor. Elizabeth knocks at the door and it cuts to a shot of Percy knocking in reply to the knock at the door. When it cuts back, the drink on the floor has gone. See more »

Crazy Credits

In the closing credits, the theme is sung as though the singer were drunk, with a swift decline in vocal quality, and at one point, a hiccup. See more »

"Beer" is very good - one to be reckoned with!
30 October 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Beer is probably the most wild out of all the Blackadder Series 2 episodes - lots of shouting and disorder in it. The way Blackadder switches between parties during the main part of the episode is brilliant - he is a character that shall be remembered for his extreme intelligence and cunning. From the start, we knew that an episode that involved a drinking contest would be wild - and Beer definitely lives up to this title. It is probably the most hilarious and immoral of all the episodes - only missing out on a 10 because it just wasn't rowdy enough, and should have had more scenes outside Blackadder's house. But this is only one minor nag - the episode is very well-written, and Blackadder's constant cool and brains make it very fun to watch. On the whole, Beer is very good - funny, well-written and rowdy and fun to watch - Blackadder meets "The Young Ones". Spiffing, but not quite top-hole. One to be reckoned with! 9/10
