Entertainment Weekly named this 2003 movie, the sixth in the leprechaun series, one of the 25 Worst Sequels Ever Made.
All that is said in this legend about the beer is a pure fiction, for we never heard of a leprechaun drinking or smoking.

Now the fairy that we are going to meet in this story is called the leprechaun, or fairy shoemaker.
The word "leprechaun" comes from two Irish words meaning "one shoe."
In a trice the Phoenix had pounced on the leprechaun and pinned him to the ground.

c.1600, from Irish lupracan, metathesis from Old Irish luchorpan literally "a very small body," from lu "little" (from PIE *legwh- "having little weight;" see light (adj.)) + corpan, diminutive of corp "body," from Latin corpus "body" (see corporeal). Commonly spelled lubrican in 17c. English. Leithbragan is Irish folk etymology, from leith "half" + brog "brogue," because the spirit was "supposed to be always employed in making or mending a single shoe."
