In real life, Donohue was a former Marine who served before the Vietnam War. The trailer shows Efron in the trenches and on helicopters with soldiers, and a backpack full of Pabst Blue Ribbon.

Crowe appears driving Donohue in a car, and later telling him, "I want the truth told, for them." Murray also appears as a New York bartender.

Peter Farrelly directed The Greatest Beer Run Ever. He co-wrote the script with Bryan Hayes Currie and Pete Jones, adapted from Joanna Molloy's book.

The Greatest Beer Run Ever will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, then play in select theaters and on the Apple TV+ streaming service Sept. 30.
