101 y/o WWII Veteran tells secret to Longevity

I thought this old feller has the right fix.

101-year-old WWII veteran credits longevity to daily Coors Light

I should be good for around 125, if the elixir really adds years.

All in moderation.

Good motivational news story.

That's impressive.

Having to drink Coors Light every day is kind of like being a vegan though: sure you'll live a long time, but why would you want to?

He switched to light beer in his mid 80's for health reasons:)

Said for the taste also. Personally, I am the same - like the taste of most lighter beers. Think that stout beers or all these craft beers taste like a mix between piss and vomit.

Give me a:

Michelob Ultra
Miller Lite
Anchor
Tiger Crystal
Beer Lao
San Miguel Light
Asahi

A nice Mich Ultra, ice cold, sitting on a beach, the taste of beer mingling with the salt residue on your lips--yeah, that'll work.

I like drinking my beer in a glass full of ice as well. Something I got use to doing working in Cambodia for four years. But people here in the USA look at me strange when I do, but it keeps the beer ice cold.

Use to be my evening ritual after a day of training or patrolling, back to the small village of Pramouy. Little restaurant, literally a wooden shack with a couple of tables and benches. Get a mug full of chopped ice, an Anchor Beer (which suprisingly taste very similiar to Michelob Ultra), and a small bowl of peanuts.

Happy Birthday Mr. Slavonic. I like my glass of San Miguel or Red Horse with a chunk of ice in it. That works over there, not here. BTW, last week I was deep in the jungle (Little Manila) and came across these 'Apple Flavored' San Migoo's. WTF kind of metrosexual clown throws apple flavoring in a perfectly good San Miguel? My hat, glass and San Miguel Grande at the beach in Leyte last summer.
