Utica Club Featured In Dirty Dancing
Did you know that at exactly 32 minutes into the film, there is a Utica Club bottle in the movie? It actually makes two appearances, at that point, and again two minutes later:
I moved the film forward about two minutes, and there again was the familiar gold and red Utica Club logo on a vintage long-necked brown beer bottle (remember, the film is set in the 1960s).
You can see Central New York's beer of choice reflected in a vanity mirror in a scene where Johnny first begins teaching Baby (Jennifer Grey) dance steps. According to the Utica OD, there are a few other scenes the UC bottle is hanging out in a corner or two.
Why would they have Utica Club in the movie? Think of the setting for a second. The movie was set in the Catskills, so honestly it's very logical for the movie to have a local-ish beer featured in it. I mean, the Catskills is no CNY, but still close enough.
