MillerCoors gives 101-year-old WWII veteran a fridge full of beer

The 101-year old had credited a Coors Light every day at 4pm as his secret to living a long life.

After US resident Andrew E. Slavonic was featured on Fox News celebrating his 101st birthday on 1 December, he probably thought his moment in the limelight had passed.

His story had gone viral after he credited his long life to drinking a Coors Light every day at 4pm for the past 15 years.

To his surprise though, less than a week later he’s back in the news again after MillerCoors delivered a late birthday present: a Coors Light Fridge filled with his favourite beer, along with hats and sweatshirts for Slavonic and his entire family.

It also came with a message from the company reading: “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.”

Slavonic lives in Pennsylvania with his son Bob, who said: “The look on his face was absolutely priceless.”

Along with the beer, MillerCoors has also invited Andrew and Bob on an all-expenses paid trip to the headquarters in Colorado for a tour of the brewery.

The World War II Air Force veteran had previously drunk Coors, but changed when he found he preferred the lighter flavour of Coors Light.
