101-year-old veteran credits Coors Light for long life; gets surprised with fridge full of beer, trip to Golden, CO brewery

11 December, 2018

After a 101-year-old World War II Air Force veteran credited his longevity to cracking open a Coors Light every day, the company gave him a birthday beer bash. When the company heard about his daily ritual, they flew out to Pennsylvania to deliver a belated birthday present – a Coors Light branded fridge fully stocked with his favorite beer.

Andrew E. Slavonic, whose birthday was last week, has been drinking a Coors Light every day at 4 p.m. for the past 15 years, according to his son, Bob Slavonic. “We got to have the one at 4 o’clock. That’s the most important one,” Andrew Slavonic told news outlets.

“On behalf of the entire Coors Light family, we wanted to wish you a Happy 101st Birthday. We wanted to personally thank you for your years of service and being a lifelong fan of Coors Light. We completely agree with your son’s statement – ‘The bluer the mountains are on the can, the better,’” a letter from the company read, according to Fox News.

The best part? The party didn't just stop with the custom stocked fridge, MillerCoors also invited the Slavonic’s out to Golden where they will get to see the headquarters.

“On behalf of the entire Coors Family, we would like to fly you and your son Bob out to our hometown Golden, Colorado, to take a tour of our brewery. We will see you in the Rockies!”

We have to say that Andrew looks and sounds damn good for 101 and this seriously brightens our spirits as we try to abide by a pretty similar regimine!
