“The Greatest Beer Run Ever” is the film adaptation of the international best-selling book of the same name. The book, written by J. T. Molloy and John 'Chick' Donohue, is about the Donohue’s experience when he took the challenge during a gathering a friends at a New York Bar. At that time, he was working as a merchant seaman and most of those gathered at the bar had lost friends and family deployed to Vietnam.

The idea was to bring messages of support, jokes and beer to buddies in combat. Donohue took up the challenge and thus, the most audacious delivery of beer from stateside to the jungles of Vietnam all for the love of friends and on a dare, became the greatest beer run ever.

If you’re wondering what beer he brought to hiss buddies, it is 18 cans of Pabst Blue Ribbon from Milwaukee.
