93-Year old Grandma's Plea: I Need More Beer! So, Did She Get It?
The Pennsylvania grandma likes a beer each evening, but the state's stay-at-home quarantine was creating a supply problem!
Olive Veronesi may be 93, but she's certainly not too old to enjoy cracking open a cold beer in the evening. She lives in the small town of Seminole, PA, and the coronavirus stay-at-home quarantine in Pennsylvania was about to throw a monkey wrench into her daily constitutional.
That is, until a relative took a picture of her, at her window, holding a white board with the message "I Need More Beer!!" in one hand, and a can of Coors Light in the other. "I was on my last 12 cans," Olive told KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh. "I have a beer every night. You know what, beer has vitamins in it, it's good for you, as long as you don't overdo it."
Olive wasn't shy about asking for what she needed during the coronavirus quarantine.
KDKA reports the picture went viral on their Facebook page and caught the attention of the folks at Molson Coors, who brought Olive ten 15-packs of her favorite brew yesterday. "My associate and I put in 10 cases of beer, and drove up, and made sure Olive got her beer so she can continue her healthy regimen of a Coors Light a day," Mark Linder of Molson Coors said.
Yes she did, ten 15-packs to be exact. Now only if she could invite someone over to share it over conversation!KDKA-TV/Facebook
Olive wasted no time popping open one of the beers on her front porch as the KDKA cameras rolled. "That tastes pretty good!" she said.
Even people who don't live in Pennsylvania or know Olive were touched by the gesture and Olive's spunk. "Thank you so very much for the huge smile you are bringing me and the beautiful feeling you give me inside!!! wrote Becky Hemze of Aurora, Minnesota on Facebook.
"Finally got a laugh to take me away from all of the craziness!" added Ann Reynolds from Bettendorf, Iowa
Cheers Olive, and a toast to Coors for recognizing that the current times mean you might have to go out of your way to serve your customers!
