The company had seen Olive’s initial request, where she held up a sign saying she needed more beer while holding a can of Coors Light, and they decided to surprise her by granting her request.

When asked how she was feeling during the delivery, the 93-year-old surprised those around, saying that she felt good and could still kick a football and hit a home run at her age.

Olive’s initial request of wanting more beer was directed at her daughter and neighbors, but with the help of social media, more than five million people have seen it.

Interestingly, the company has stated that they were making a standing offer to Olive and her family in that more beer would be on its way when they need to restock.

Olive, who is from Seminole Pennsylvania, is doing her best to flatten the curve by staying indoors and enjoying a can of her favorite beer.
