The Best Beer Scenes in Movies

Beer makes on the silver screen quite often but it’s connection to the story can sometimes be easily overlooked. We take a look at a handful of iconic movies where beer plays an important role in the scene.

1. Django Unchained (2012)

Beer is often used to express a sense of bonding or trust between characters and this scene from Django Unchained is a perfect example. Leading up to this scene, Schultz, a German bounty hunter sought out a slave named Django and bought him because he needed his help finding some men he is looking for.

One of their first stops is a tavern where Schultz scares off the bartender and decides to pour the two a beer. The film uses beer as a way of showing equality between the free man and the slave in that moment. This is when Django learns about Schultz’s job and is offered a deal….

2. The Lord of the Rings (2001)The Fellowship of the Ring

While there are many great beer scenes to choose from in the Lord of the Rings trilogy but we wanted to find one that was less popular. No great adventure is complete without a stop at the each regions finest tavern.

3. Superbad (2007)

This scene from Superbad is amazing for so many reasons but I think we all love it because of it’s relatability. It perfect captures the anxiety and drama of partying in high school. Fogal aka “McLovin” is attempting to use his new fake i.d to score alcohol for a high school party. He gets a little more than he bargained for though…. 

4. Drinking Buddies (2013)

Drinking Buddies is a comedy-drama about two co-workers at a craft brewery in Chicago that seem like the perfect couple but both are in relationships. There are quite a few flings, some hurt feelings, a few funny scenes and lots of beer. 

5. Titanic (1997)

Rose can drink like a boss! Another iconic scene that uses beer to show commonality between Jack, a poor 3rd class passenger on the Titanic and Rose, a wealthy women from first class. Prost! 

6. Wolf of Wall Street (2013)

This scene from The Wolf of Wallstreet shows beer being used in a darker way. The characters are chasing “Ludes” with shots of beer. Beer isn’t always used a positive reinforcement for the scene and often can be the perfect ingredient to make a character unsavory and  untrustworthy.
