|93 Year Old Pleads For Beer
Pennsylvania native Olive Veronesi was down to her last 12 cans of beer last week — and she went viral
asking for more with a cheeky white board message. The 93-year-old's plea was answered when 150
cans of Coors Light were delivered to her doorstep. She is staying home during the coronavirus
pandemic and is unable to pick up more beer herself. So, a relative of hers snapped a photo of her
holding up a sign that read: "I need more beer," Veronesi is smiling wide and holding a can of Coors
Light behind a closed glass door. "I have a beer every night," Something to relax, you know, I think it's
nice — something for a young lady." she said. The image was posted to Facebook and it quickly spread
It was shared more than 51,000 times.It luckily reached the Molson Coors the maker of Coors Light.
"Olive asked, and beer is on its way!" the Coors Light Twitter account posted The brand kept its promise
by delivering 150 cans of beer "When we saw Olive's message, we wanted to not only connect with
someone who brought a smile to our faces during this pandemic, but also gave us a special opportunity
to say thanks for being a Coors Light fan," a Molson Coors spokesperson said "Even in the pre-COVID
era, we would've been thrilled to fulfill Olive's request. But in this moment, during these unusual times,
bringing a little bit of joy to someone's day is the least we can do." Veronesi was thrilled by the delivery,
and even updated her message board to read: "Got more beer!" (pic at bottom)

|“Beer is not the answer. Beer is the question. Yes is the answer.." .
" Owning things don’t make me nearly as happy as talking and having
a beer with my friends. And that’s something everyone can do.”"
"Isn’t beer the holy libation of sincerity? The potion that dispels all hypocrisy, any
charade of fine manners? The drink that does nothing worse than incite its fans to
urinate in all innocence, to gain weight in all frankness?”.
“Beer may cause you to digress – and lead a happier life.”
"The hard part about being a bartender is figuring out who is drunk
and who is just stupid."
"I went out with a guy who once told me I didn’t need to drink to make myself more fun
to be around. I told him, I’m drinking so that you’re more fun to be around."
“Can't we just get rid of wine lists? Do we really have to be reminded every time we go
out to a nice restaurant that we have no idea what we are doing? Why don't they just
give us a trigonometry quiz with the menu?”
"My tolerance for beer is way higher than my tolerance for some people.."
