Meanwhile, Homer decides to make money for himself as a bootlegger, and is soon nicknamed "The Beer Baron". Written by Anonymous

A Brilliant Episode
9 March 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

When I saw this episode and got the DVD with it I watched it a lot of times and looked forward to seeing it. I favor these types of episodes on the show and this one in particular is no exception.

When Springfield Celebrates Saint Patrick's Day Bart is seen drunk by the entire crowd and the News Team. This sends a wake up call to Springfield about Liquor in the town and leads to Chief Wiggum being booted from SPD and replaced by a strict 1940s Cop out to do everything he can to keep Springfield Booze Free. As you can imagine Homer and the good folk's at Moe's Tavern won't let their Precious Duff go without a fight. After a few attempts to get Booze back into Springfield Homer takes it upon himself to make the booze himself in The Simpson's Basement, another father-Son activity for Homer and Bart. Homer supplies Moe's Bar with the Booze and makes a pretty penny even Marge is impressed by.

Filled with Funny Lines and Great Moments this is an episode that will quench anybodies Thirst.
