Cheers Wiki

The King of Beers is the third episode of the eleventh season of the NBC series Cheers.


Norm's new job seems like a dream come true when he becomes a beer taster at a brewery. Rebecca finds she can't tear herself away from the bar's new slot machine.


  • When Sam comes over to Rebecca while she's playing the slot machine, she tells him that she's pulled the lever 578 times. This means that by that time she spent $28.90 in nickels.
  • Woody delivers the opening message that the show is filmed in front of a live studio audience but does not appear in the episode.
  • Norm Peterson says he is 43 in this episode, corresponding to actor George Wendt's age when the episode was shot.
