Oktoberfest (naturally) takes place in October, and the team starts training in November. In the scene when the three-month mark is announced, the Schnitzengiggle Tavern is decorated with cupids and hearts, indicating that it is February, which would be eight months from October. Further, in the scene labeled the one-month mark, the tavern is decorated with garlands and colored lights, indicating that it is December, which would be a full ten months from October. See more »

"If you attempt to drink this much... You Will Die"
25 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

When the movie opened with warning labels like this, you know you're ready for a great movie. Beerfest was top notch of it's class. Drinking beer for sport is a classic money maker; I'm surprised this wasn't made sooner! We know that almost every partier will go out and spend money to see this movie, and they should. This movie is great for learning new games and getting wasted fast. This is a perfect example of a movie that is not for younger audiences.

Beerfest has all you need for a good movie: comedy, plot, creative thought process, Beer and women... lots of women. The typical frat party kind of movie where you watch it then go out with buddies and wake up the next morning forgetting that you even saw it. This show is worth watching because of it's great comedy. The creators of Super Troopers should be proud to have a good sister movie.

8/10.
