93-year-old woman calls for more beer in coronavirus isolation; Coors delivers

COVID-19: What older adults need to know about the outbreak and staying healthy

SEMINOLE, Pa. (KDKA/CNN) - A big wish has come true for a 93-year-old beer lover in Pennsylvania after she posted a sign at her house that read “I need more beer” amid her coronavirus-induced isolation.

Representatives from Molson Coors showed up at 93-year-old Olive Veronesi’s door Monday and dropped off 10 cases of beer, totaling 150 cans. Veronesi wasted no time, cracking open a cold one right on the front porch.

The delivery came after a relative took a photo of Veronesi last week in which she held a Coors Light can and a sign that read “I need more beer!!” It was posted to Facebook, where it was viewed more than 5 million times.

Veronesi has been staying at home in Seminole, Pennsylvania, because of the coronavirus pandemic, and she says her beer stash was about to run dry.

“I was on my last 12 cans. Anyway, I have a beer every night. Beer has vitamins in it; it’s good for you, as long as you don’t overdo it,” she said.

After the delivery, Veronesi wrote a new sign that read, “Got more beer!”

“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,” said Mark Linder with Molson Coors.
