DVD Commentary by Steve Smith Edit

{from Stuffed and Mounted}

STEVE SMITH: Okay, "The Beer Project"... You know, I was thinking about this. It's got one of my favorite lines in it where we walk in completely soaked and Harold says, "I thought it was supposed to be a dry beer," but... in all the years we've done the show, somebody needs to compile how many segments are about beer. You know, I don't know whether it's a hint, trying to find a sponsor, or it's just– it's a– perhaps a cry for help. In any case, I hope you enjoy the show.

Segment SummaryEdit

Plot: Red explains that, after hearing about how big their tab from a local beer store has become, instead of cutting back on beer consumption, the men of the lodge decide to brew their own beer. They already have most of the ingredients needed to make the beer. Against Harold's insistence to only brew a small quantity of beer, Red and the others proceed with plans to brew a huge amount. However, their first batch of beer does not turn out right. Harold thinks that they did not sterilize the equipment, as they should have, to prevent disease. Another batch of beer made by the lodge later does not turn out any better. Red finally listens to Harold when he says that they need to ferment the beer for two weeks. Red hits on an idea of what to use as a beer vat: a water tower near a starch factory that has been condemned. They plan to set the factory on fire, which in turn would heat up the tower and ultimately ferment the beer. Ultimately, the beer project fails, with bizarre consequences.
