Coors surprised Olive with 150 beers — and a promise to restock whenever she needs it. Upon receiving the delivery, Olive posed with a new sign that read, “GOT MORE BEER!”

“Even in the pre-COVID era, we would’ve been thrilled to fulfill Olive’s request,” a Molson Coors spokesperson told CNN. “But in this moment, during these unusual times, bringing a little bit of joy to someone’s day is the least we can do.”

According to NBC News, when consumed in moderation, beer can have health benefits. It may lower your diabetes risk, make your heart healthier, and, yes, help you live longer. Looks like Olive has the right idea.
