When a serial killer interrupts the fun at the swanky Coconut Pete's Coconut Beach Resort--a hedonistic island paradise for swingers--it's up to the club's staff to stop the violence...or at least hide it.
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

When Barry says about a ZJ, "If you have to ask, you can't afford it," this is a reference to famous American tycoon J.P. Morgan, who supposedly said, when asked about buying an expensive yacht, "If you have to ask for the price, then you can't afford it." See more »

I went and saw a screening of Beerfest yesterday and I have to say I pleasantly surprised. I went in with unrealistically high hopes as Super Troopers was one of my favorite comedies of all time. Although this movie stands on it's own, Super Troopers is the clear winner in my opinion. However, Beerfest was better than Club Dread. Beerfest has some off the wall situations that many reviewers say ruined it. I disagree as they were some of the more funny parts and it IS a movie after all. I knew this would be a great movie literally 5 seconds into it. All in all I would recommend this movie to anyone that liked the Broken Lizard movies. A warning though, People in AA shouldn't go and see this movie as you will probably end up at the bar afterwords like I did.
