Olive Veronesi, who lives in Pennsylvania has made a plea for more beer and the internet has fallen in love with this granny who, to be honest, appears to be badass too.



Olive decided the best way to get her supply of beers replenished was to get creative and use Facebook.

Olive, was pictured holding a whiteboard that said: “I NEED MORE BEER!”

In her other hand? A can of Coors Light, perfect way to make sure she gets her favorite brand delivered to her.

The photograph, taken through the window of her home, was uploaded to the Facebook page of a local TV station.

The post has been seen by well over a million people so far.

As a result of her plea, several people have offered to top up Olive’s beer stash which has thrilled Olive to bits.

It seems Olive isn’t the only one calling out for her drinks stock to be topped-up, many people commented on the post how they are supporting their elderly relatives with not only essential items but booze too.

As Olive is in her 90s, she falls into a group that is at higher risk from COVID-19.

The coronavirus can cause more severe illness in older adults, with many countries urging those over 70 to stay at home, take extra care, and avoid contact with their family members.
