Last week, World War II veteran Andrew E. Slavonic celebrated his 101st birthday. The secret to his long and healthy life? Drinking a daily Coors Light at 4 p.m.
News of the veteran’s preferred tipple soon went viral, with MillerCoors, the parent company behind Coors Light, quick to respond with a special birthday gift.
According to Fox News, the brewing company delivered a fully-stocked Coors Light fridge to Slavonic’s home in McMurray, Penn. The belated birthday gift also included branded hats, pullovers, and sweatshirts for Slavonic and his family.
“On behalf of the entire Coors Light family, we wanted to wish you a Happy 101st Birthday,” a message from MillerCoors read. “We wanted to personally thank you for your years of service and being a lifelong fan of Coors Light.”
But the company had one more, extra-special gift in store for the Coors Light fan. MillerCoors announced it would fly Slavonic and son Bob, with whom he enjoys his daily 4 p.m. beer, to Golden, Colo. for a tour of its brewery and headquarters.
“We will see you in the Rockies!” the brewing company said via a statement to Fox News.
