We gave it a B+

Some movies are made to thrive on DVD. In the case of Beerfest, comedy troupe Broken Lizard (Super Troopers) explores the world of competitive drinking: A U.S. squad challenges German champions in a Fight Club-esque battle of brew-guzzling skills. While Lizard hit the humor trifecta — breasts, booze, and bong jokes — it’s Cloris Leachman as a bawdy lady of the evening that makes Beerfest a frat-set classic.

EXTRAS
Two commentaries; an animated Beer 101. And in a featurette, Heffernan admits, ”You know the old saying ‘Write what you know’? That’s what we did.”
