Episode Recap

At work, Mimi asks Drew how his ride home was last night. It seems that Mimi pulled some pranks on Drew, putting a fish and a raccoon in his car. When Mimi doesn't look, he trades Mimi's squeezable butter with soap. Kate then comes in with a beer that is a rip-off of Buzz Beer, and has Drew taste-test it. When Mr. Wick comes out, he notices Drew's been drinking, and gets angry with him about it. To prove Drew isn't drunk, he must walk a straight line, but ends up falling when Mimi squeezes some of that liquid soap onto the floor.

Oswald and Lewis bring in several cases of Buzz Beer while Drew talks to Tony, the owner at the bar. In comes an owner of Cap-Beer-Cino, the beer that is ripping off Buzz Beer, and Drew can't help but yell at the guy. The man decides to have Lewis taste-test the Cap-Beer-Cino, and after trying it, he says he's blind now. Tony comes over and ends up revealing that Lewis, Oswald and Drew are all from Buzz Beer. The owner of Cap-Beer-Cino pokes fun at Drew, and they almost get into a fight.

In the delivery truck, Kate, Lewis, Oswald and Drew are delivering beer, but it's an ice cream truck, which has the music playing, drawing in hundreds of kids.

Drew and Kate walk into the Warsaw, complaining about the refrigeration system in the truck, which died during the delivery. Drew notices a guy at the bar, drinking Cap-Beer-Cino instead of Buzz Beer. The only reason he's drinking it is because of a Rachel Hunter ad campaign. When Kate notices Rachel Hunter at the Warsaw, she asks how much she would charge to do an ad campaign for Buzz Beer, but she seems to run out of paper for all of those zeroes. Lewis and Oswald then come in, wearing a lemon costumes. They were at the dealership, scaring away customers. The guy caved and agreed to fix the refrigeration unit. The problem with the refrigeration was a Cap-Beer-Cino bottle cap was lodged in it somehow, causing it to malfunction. Drew decides to go after the Cap-Beer-Cino guys on their own turf.

At work, Mimi brings over some fresh-made donuts, which make Drew hungry. When he tries to sniff them, she pushes the powdered donuts into his face, just before Mr. Wick comes out, and when he does, he thinks Drew has a problem with cocaine. Lewis, Oswald and Kate come in wearing fancy clothing, all set for their time out with the Cap-Beer-Cino crowd.

Drew, Kate, Lewis and Oswald come in, shocked at how great-looking everyone is. When Drew tries to sell the beer to the bar owner, the owner thinks they're a rip off of Cap-Beer-Cino. After listening to them "sell" their beer, he promises to get back to them. The owner of Cap-Beer-Cino comes in and insults Drew, and they end up getting into a fight.

Kate, Drew, Lewis and Oswald walk into the Warsaw and talk about how good the night was. When they ask the bartender, Joe, for some Buzz Beer, he tells them he doesn't sell it anymore, only Cap-Beer-Cino, due to a free-trip-to-Tahiti giveaway. Drew walks around to all of the tables, trying to convince them to buy Buzz Beer, and dump Cap-Beer-Cino. In order to help sell it, Drew promises a date with Kate, which obviously surprises and upsets her.

The show ends with the guys placing a photo of Mimi over the Rachel Hunter photo, next to the slogan about Cap-Beer-Cino being the beer of beautiful people.
