Jack and Victor receive the sad news that dear old friend, Pete the Jakey, has died. Pete may have been homeless but he held a special place in the heart of Craiglang's community. However, as everyone gathers at the Clansman after Pete's funeral, tight-fisted Tam still can't find it in himself to contribute to the kitty.
Beyond the grave, Pete leaves his legacy with Boabby and Winston through his pal, Methadone Mick. Meanwhile, the latest budget means the prize of booze is up. The Clansman feels the pinch as punters stay away and some dubious bootleg hooch starts flooding the community, with serious side-effects. Jack and Victor take on the task of finding out who's brewing the dodgy booze.
