“That tastes pretty good,” Olive said as she opened up the first of her ten 15 packs of beer.
The Seminole, Pennsylvania native went viral last week after a relative of Veronesi’s took a photo of her holding a dry-erase board that read “I need more beer!”
That photo went viral around the world on the KDKA Facebook page, viewed more than five-million times.

“I was on my last 12 cans, I have a beer every night, you know what, beer has vitamins in it, it’s good for you, as long as you don’t overdo it,” Olive says.
Veronesi has been staying at home to help flatten the curve and keep everyone, and herself safe during the coronavirus pandemic.
Representatives from Molson Coors paid Olive a special visit, dropping off the beer.
“My associate and I put in 10 cases of beer, and drove up, and made sure Olive got her beer so she can continue her healthy regimen of a Coors light a day,” Mark Linder of Molson Coors said.
Thousands of people reached out to get Olive a beer after the photo was posted.
