Andrew E. Slavonic of McMurray, Penn. turned 101 years old on December 1. His secret to the long, healthy life he continues to enjoy? A daily Coors Light at 4 p.m.
According to Fox News, Slavonic has been drinking a Coors Light daily in the afternoon for the last 15 years. Before that, it was Coors — he’s been a fan of the brand since 1996.
His son, Bob Slavonic, who lives with his father, says he introduced Andrew to the brand. “I think I am the one to blame for the switch because that is all that I have been drinking for about the past 25 years,” he told Fox News.
Andrew is still “spry,” his son says, and keeps a regular schedule. He wakes at 8:30 a.m., makes his own breakfast and lunch, and reads the newspaper every day.
And each afternoon, “around 4:00 p.m., he tells me that it is 4:00 p.m., and it is time for our beer,” Bob said. “He gets his Coors Light from the garage beer fridge and enjoys a nice cold one. The bluer the mountains are on the can, the better.”
Andrew is a true American: He’s a WWII Air Force Veteran who served as a nose gunner and top turret gunner, along with training new pilots during the war.
Bob reportedly reached out to MillerCoors about his father’s affection for the brew, but has not gotten a response.
