Something is rotten at the Elsinore Brewery. Bob and Doug Mackenzie (as seen on SCTV) help the brewery founder's daughter Pam regain the brewery founded by her recently-deceased father. But to do so, they must confront the suspicious brew master and two teams of vicious hockey players.Written by

At one point, Bob says, "He saw Jedi 17 times, eh!" What isn't obvious now, is that Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983) opened in May 1983, while production of "Strange Brew" had wrapped five months earlier, in December 1982 despite the film taking place in 1984. The McKenzie couldn't refer to it by its full title, since the "Revenge"/"Return" issue was still up in the air while they were filming. See more »
When the loaded tractor-trailers pull out of the indoor dock to go to Oktoberfest, the trailer doors are all closed. The trailer in Dock #1 is only about a foot from the wall to its left. Trailer doors require 4 or 5 feet of space to close. The driver of the truck would have to pull the trailer out of the dock before closing the doors - the trailer doors wouldn't and couldn't be closed inside the dock after loading. See more »
[Doug and Bob are hooked up to a polygraph lie detector]
What have you done with the disk?
What are you looking at me for? I don't got it.
[Ted looks at the polygraph which doesn't show anything off]
Maybe it's out of gas, eh?
[Doug then passes gas in a loud flatulence noise]
Uh, man! You farted!
It wasn't me, it was the chair!
[now the polograph begins showing activity]

In the original theatrical release, instead of the usual roaring lion in MGM's studio logo, the lion is drunk and belches. Then the camera pans to the side to reveal that the McKenzie Brothers (the main characters in this movie) are playing with the lion's tail. When the lion gets angry, they leave to another room to introduce the movie. See more »
(You'll never look at your beer the same way again)
Bar none (or is it "Beer none") the best movie of all time! Cornball humor abounds when two brothers, Bob and Doug Mc Kenzie help a young heiress named Pamela reclaim her family's brewery from the evil Brewmeister Smith (who plans to take over the world by putting a mind control drug in all the beer he makes) and his hapless assistant (who just happens to be her Uncle). This movie actually has a plot, though you'll probably be too busy laughing to care. An unexpected cameo by Mel Blanc is a nice surprise, and Max Von Sydow makes a convincingly sinister antagonist. This IS Canada, so the hero is a handsome hockey player nicknamed Rosey who falls in love (of course) with Pamela. Though it's hard to pick just one favorite scene,one of the best bits begins in the courtroom and ends in the loonie bin! Anyway, grab some jelly donuts, sit back, relax, and soon you'll be saying with the rest of us "TAKE OFF YOU HOSER!"
