The same used to be true of Coors, until like ten or fifteen years ago.  But I believe they no longer make Olympia Beer.

We were just discussing this in the Movie Night thread for Thunderbolt and Lightfoot. KC found a link that explained that Pabst bought Olympia in 1983. (HERE is the link.)

I can't think of what the other two movies are, though there aren't that many choices.  In Play Misty for Me he drinks Heineken, except in the first bar scene, where he's drinking some unidentifiable beer that could be Olympia. 

Play Misty for Me isn't one of the two movies I was thinking of.

Talk about coincidence!

I was just channel surfing and I  came across  'Any Which Way You Can' on Azteca America.  The dialogue is in Spanish but I can clearly see Clint drinking a Michelob and Clyde is drinking an Olympia ( no, Clyde's not speaking Spanish!) There's also an unguarded bottle of Olympia on the bar as well.   Any film caps of that scene?  Well, one more movie to go.

That's one of the two! Clint does drink Olympia in the film. Here he is taking a breather during the big fight with Jack Wilson:



Michelob does feature prominently throughout AWWYC. I've wondered if some of the beers in these films were sponsors, or if they were the favorites of the filmmakers.

There's still ONE more Olympia film to go.  :)

Well considering that in practically every shot the label just happens to be facing the camera......I wonder.   ;)

I was  thinking that if he had all that beer in his fridge in 'Magnum Force' surely he would have a can or two left over for  'The Enforcer.'

You would think so, but I don't think he drinks any beer in The Enforcer. He is seen drinking a bottle of apple juice, though. I looked through it the other day to make sure I had all the Olympia movies, and didn't see any in The Enforcer. So, there's still one more movie.

I think it would've been going overboard had he continued glugging Olympia brews in The Enforcer. My guess is Callahan would have become a problem drinker, eventually a has-been cop. His superiors would have ended up giving him a suicide assignment or something, and he woulda ended up with a sleazy blonde in a bus driving through a line of heavily armed cops.

So let's be thankful he didn't crack open any cold ones in The Enforcer.

Googling around I came across this screencap of Gregory Walcott as Putnam, drinking Olympia in Every Which Way But Loose.



It's from the Bonanza World Forums, which has an interview with Walcott:

Quote
Q#28 - You've worked with Clint Eastwood in several movies. Can you tell us how that working relationship developed, and what it was like acting with Mr. Eastwood, as well as working with him as the film's director? Do you still maintain contact today?

Greg - Clint Eastwood was very easy to work with. He was low key, never fussed or got mad as some directors do. He was very confident. His films I did were probably my best working conditions over the years (and they paid well!!).

No, I haven't seen him lately. Since I retired I don't get over to the studios very often. He is a nice man and very admired in our industry. Incidentally, he sponsored me in the Motion Picture Academy for membership.

Thanks, Lilly! 

Wanna take a shot at what movie we're looking for here? There's still one left... and not many to choose from.  ;)

I forgot we hadn't finished this. How about 'Bronco Billy?'

You got it, CvW!

There's a few other brands of beer in Bronco Billy, but I found Olympia in this scene:



Yes, the labels are perfectly placed to make sure we can read them.  ;)

I have to ask "Why Olympia"? My parents went out of town the summer after my junior year in High School back in 89. My buddies and myself bought around eight - ten cases of Olympia becauses it was on sale. We could not catch a buzz off of that not very tasty beer. The slogan says "It's The Water".  There is a reason for that slogan. We still had leftovers of beer which was unheard of man. :)

Mind you the Olympia beer you were drinking was not the same beer Clint was drinking in the seventies.  It was being brewed by a different brewing company in a different part of the country, and being brewed as a completely different type of beer.  I'd run across a couple really good websites that explained it all back when this discussion began, so I'll try to find those again.

Funny you should say that because when I first moved here in the late 70's, one of the first things I wanted to do was try Clint's favorite beer which as I've mentioned earlier was unavailable on the East Coast. I remember my roomate, who was a native Arizonan giving me this look like, "why?"
It just tasted like a lite beer to me. In fact I think they made an Olympia Lite too.  Now that's a reason to ask, "why?."  I developed a taste for it after awhile but after the novelty wore off I switched  to Rainer or maybe Everclear I forget  ;). Hey, you still got any of those Olympias left,  buddy?!

If I did Clint, you would not want it 17 years later man. ;D
