Brew stars Loretta Swit as B.D. Tucker, an “adman” desperate to come up with a great marketing campaign, when her biggest client, Norbecker Beer, threatens to take its business to another firm. After witnessing a failed bar hold-up, B.D. hires three average Joes (Grier, Russ, and Stein), who inadvertently apprehended the crook, to star in a series of commercials based on their sudden "hero" status. The spots are an overnight sensation, but in order to keep Norbecker Beer on top, B.D. has to produce increasingly offensive and sexist ads.
