Beer and Loathing is the one hundred-twentieth episode of King of the Hill. It was first aired on April 14, 2002. The episode was written by Etan Cohen, and directed by Dominic Polcino.


There is a state-wide shortage on Alamo Beer in Texas. While calling the Alamo company to ask about the shortage and using the Spanish-language option of the phone menu on a whim, Peggy Hill is told that she speaks Spanish extremely well, and that she would make an excellent Alamo employee. There, she signs a non-disclosure agreement that says that she cannot reveal any of the company's "secrets." She subsequently discovers that Alamo Beer distributed in Mexico is contaminated with soap from the brewing process. After making a promise to his wife not to, Hank, Dale, Bill, and Boomhauer all go to Mexico and get sick from drinking Alamo.

Hank finally convinces Peggy to tell him the information that she has been withholding, and she reveals that the beer is tainted, and that is why he has been vomiting and having diarrhea. Peggy then breaks into the executive office and replaces all the beer laid out for the executives with tainted beer, causing the CEO to recall Alamo from both Texas and Mexico without disclosing the fact that the beer was tainted, saying only that it didn't meet quality standards.



  • Bill mentions in the alley when everyone's sick that he ate all the banana, peel included. However, if you look closely, as soon as they all get back from Mexico earlier in the episode, the peel can be seen on the ground next to Bill while he's drinking a beer.
