After the death of their grandfather Johann von Wolfhause, the brothers Jan and Todd Wolfhouse travel to Munich to fulfill a family tradition, spreading the ashes of Johann during the Oktoberfest. 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.Written by

Jim Tobleson's a fucking Chatty Cathy! I did my three years up at the county pen. Made some friends, went Muslim. Now I'm out, praise Allah.

For the UK cinema version Warner Bros. chose to remove a scene of sexualized asphyxiation in order to achieve the requested '15' rating. The scene was restored to the UK DVD and the rating raised to an '18'. See more »
I had really low expectations going into this film, but much to my surprise, the film is absolutely hilarious. A real throwback to classic films such as "Animal House" and "Stripes", as well as newer fare such as "Old School". Thankfully it's a solid "R" (nudity and drug use galore) which is welcome in these overly safe, PG-13 days. Definitely Broken Lizard's funniest film (better than SUPER TROOPERS and way, way, way better than the horrible DUKES OF HAZZARD). I can honestly say I haven't laughed this hard in quite a while at a film. Made me long for my long, lost college days. Will make you want to crack open a cold one after wards...
