Strange Brew

Play Trailer

In an extended riff on one of their most popular SCTV skits, Bob and Doug McKenzie try to convince their local brewery they’ve found a mouse in one of their beer bottles. The hosers' grift takes them to the top of Elsinor Brewery, where they discover that an evil brewmeister has added a sinister secret ingredient to Elsinore’s beer. Delightfully surreal with plenty of dry nods to “required Canadian content”, Strange Brew is a Canadian comedy classic.
