Strange Brew - The Movie
It begins like a typical Great White North sketch on SCTV, but then cuts away to
the story. Two unemployed brothers, Bob and Doug McKenzie, are in a bind when
they give away their father's beer money and then run out of beer. The brothers
place a mouse in a beer bottle in an attempt to get free Elsinore beer from the
local beer store, but are told to take up the matter at the Elsinore brewery
instead. After presenting the evidence to management at Elsinore brewery, the
brothers are given jobs on the bottling line inspecting the bottles for mice.
They take this opportunity to drink lots of free beer off the line; later, they
surprise their parents with a van full of Elsinore products.
Meanwhile, the evil Brewmeister Smith is perfecting a secret plan to take over
the world by putting a drug in Elsinore beer which, while otherwise rendering
the consumer docile, makes him or her attack others when stimulated by musical
tones. Smith tests this adulterated beer on patients of the conveniently located
Royal Canadian Institute for the Mentally Insane, which is connected by
underground tunnels to the brewery.
