"Beers and Weirs" is the second episode of the Freaks and Geeks TV series. It was written by J. Elvis Weinstein and Judd Apatow and directed by Jake Kasdan. The episode first aired on October 2, 1999.


When Harold and Jean Weir go out of town for the weekend, Lindsay hosts a keg party. The geeks Sam, Bill, and Neal, worried that the party-goers will get too rowdy, substitute a keg of non-alcoholic beer for the one the freaks have on ice.


Mr. and Mrs. Weir go on weekend holidays.

Lindsay is invited to hang out with the group, but says she has to stay at home and look after her brother because her parent are out of town. Daniel suggests throwing a party at Lindsay's house. She reluctantly agrees.
