''Beerfest'' is a 2006 film from comedy troupe Creator/BrokenLizard. It's probably best described as an AffectionateParody of sports movies that uses cultural and NationalStereotypes to a ridiculous extent.

The plot of the movie revolves around brothers Jan and Todd Wolfhouse, whose German grandfather has just passed away. Charged with the task of bringing his ashes to the "family resting place" in Munich during {{Oktoberfest}}, they end up discovering [[TitleDrop Beerfest]], a secret underground drinking competition. Beerfest is presided over by [[BigBad Baron Wolfgang von Wolfhausen]], ''braumeister'' of the Von Wolfhausen brewery. He is furious at Jan and Todd's late grandfather for purportedly stealing his family's beer recipe, "the greatest in all the world," calling him a "thieving stable boy" and "bastard son of a whore." Americans are banned from Beerfest, and as Jan and Todd try to state their right to be there, they are handily beaten in an impromptu speed chug competition by the German team. After suffering humiliation at the hands of the von Wolfhausens, they return home with the intent to return to Beerfest with the first American team--and kick the Germans' asses.

* ActorAllusion: Baron von Wolfhausen (Jurgen Prochnow) had a [[Film/DasBoot bad experience on a U-Boat]]. And, of course it's hammered home with the glass boot itself.
* TheAlcoholic: Virtually ''everybody'' in this movie. The film even opens with a disclaimer warning the viewer not to attempt to drink like the characters.
--> "...If you attempt to drink the amount of beer the characters do in this film, YOU WILL DIE."
* AllGermansAreNazis: Surprisingly averted, although Fink (who is Jewish) is convinced to join the drinking team after hearing that their biggest rivals will be the Germans.
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: The DisasterDominoes turns the entire crowd against them when a little boy on stage is injured and started crying.
* AvengersAssemble: Putting the American team together.
* BackupTwin: [[spoiler:Played for Laughs. When Phil "Landfill" is assassinated, his identical twin brother Gil shows up to the funeral, and ends up getting Landfill's nickname, his spot on the team...and even his ''wife''. It is even lampshaded by the other team members who notice that it is as if Phil hadn't died in the first place.]]
* BaitAndSwitch: The plans for the Wolfhausen recipe [[spoiler:are stolen by Cherry, but it turns out that she merely stole a prototypical recipe for "a new low-carb strawberry ale.]] [[SoOkayItsAverage It's... okay.]]"

** Fink during the course of the entire film (with his ever-changing wardrobe of yarmulkes).
* DavidVersusGoliath

* FanserviceExtra: At Oktoberfest when a bar fight causes a guy to slip and grab onto the tube top of the nearest girl. Newly stripped girl slips herself, grabs onto the tops of two ''other'' girls, and strips ''them''. And then ''those'' two girls slip, and pull down the tops of the three girls ''behind them''. A chain reaction of 6 uncredited topless blonde Fanservice Extras that has the men at Oktoberfest—as well as the male audience—cheering at each stage. Pure {{Fanservice}} all the way.
** [[IntendedAudienceReaction This is by far the most likely scene in this movie to make female viewers roll their eyes and lament that]] AllMenArePerverts.
* FreestateAmsterdam
* HookerWithAHeartOfGold: [=GamGam=] is a very sweet old lady who was a prostitute in her youth.

* SeriousBusiness: Those who don't obey the rules of Beerfest tend to get shot.
* ShootTheMessenger: Upon learning that the Americans know the recipe to their beer, Baron von Wolfhausen orders the delivery boy to be disposed of immediately. [[CruelAndUnusualDeath The grandsons shove hoses down his throat, in his ears, and up his nose, and tap the keg.]]
* ShoutOut: Baron von Wolfhausen [[Film/DasBoot had a bad experience on a U-Boat once]].
** Not to mention the "Das Boot" competition ''itself''.
** There are also a number of veiled or not-so-veiled references to lines from ''Film/SuperTroopers'', usually delivered by the same actor. The most obvious is probably Landfill asking for "six Schnitzes."
*** The German techno music from ''Film/SuperTroopers'' is heard during the scene where the Germans are training.
** The "You do not talk about Beerfest" rule is also a shout-out to ''Film/FightClub''.

* TookALevelInBadass: Fink near the end.
* TrainingFromHell: Par for the course for the Germans, but then self-inflicted by the new Team USA. How intense could it be? ''Both teams actually drank ram's piss.''
--->'''Barry Badrinath:''' (after drinking Ram's piss) "Oh man, that's the most disgusting thing I've ever drank."
--->'''Landfill:''' "I doubt that very much, playboy!"
* TVGenius: Fink, who goes so far as to develop a scientific approach to ''drinking''.
** AllThereInTheManual: The segment explaining "Fink's Position," used by all of the American team during the final line chug, didn't make it into the final cut of the film. It's included as a deleted scene on the DVD, however.
* UglyGuyHotWife: Landfill, despite being an overweight competitive eater, has a ''very'' attractive wife.
* UnderdogsNeverLose
* TheUnintelligible: The English team (''not'' British, as there's a separate Scottish team) is painted this way, with their use of Cockney rhyming slang. If you actually know Cockney, however, [[BilingualBonus you can understand them perfectly]].

* YouHaveFailedMe: [[spoiler:The Baron has Cherry executed when it's revealed that she stole the wrong beer recipe.]]
