“Olive asked, and beer is on its way!” the brewing company wrote on Twitter.

CNN reported that the company's spokesperson said Coors made a standing offer to Veronesi and her family for more beer whenever they're ready for a restock.

“When we saw Olive's message, we knew we had to jump at the chance to not only connect with someone who brought a smile to our faces during this pandemic but also to take the opportunity to say thanks for being a Coors Light fan.

“During these unusual times, bringing a little bit of joy to someone's day is the least we can do,” said the spokesperson, according to the report.
