What is The Greatest Beer Run Ever about?

The Greatest Beer Run Ever tells the story of Chickie Donohue (Efron), a man who travels into Vietnam to bring his friends a beer during the war.

To show support for his neighborhood friends serving in Vietnam, Chickie Donohue (Zac Efron) decides to do something totally outrageous: travel to the frontline by himself to bring the soldiers a little piece of home — their favorite can of American beer. However, what started as a well-meaning journey quickly turns into the adventure of a lifetime as Chickie confronts the reality of this controversial war and his reunions with his childhood buddies thrust him into the complexities and responsibilities of adulthood. Based on an incredible true story, “The Greatest Beer Run Ever” is a heartfelt coming-of-age tale about friendship, loyalty and sacrifice.

The Greatest Beer Run Ever will premiere in both theaters and on Apple TV+ on Friday, September 30. If you want to enjoy the film in the best quality possible at home, check out our review of the Apple TV 4K and our list of the Best TVs for Apple TV 2022.
