A 101-year-old Pennsylvania man’s daily Coors Light habit has been a blessing in more ways than one.

The family of World War II Air Force vet Andrew E. Slavonic credited his afternoon beer intake to his long life last week as he rang in his milestone birthday Dec. 1. And when MillerCoors caught wind of his preferred brand, the company that makes Coors Light surprised him with a special delivery.

The lager-loving vet was gifted with a Coors Light-emblazoned fridge stocked with the cans of the brew, along with branded shirts and hats. Even more thrilling, Slavonic and his son Bob were invited on a trip to the brand’s brewery in Golden, Colorado, according to Fox News.

“I think that this is a once in a lifetime experience,” Bob told Fox of his dad’s birthday gift and newfound fame.

Slavonic used to drink regular Coors but switched over to the light version 15 years ago. Now he has one every day at 4 p.m.

“We got to have the one at 4 o’clock,” Slavonic said. “That’s the most important one.”
