A doting father treated his son to his first legal beer from beyond the grave.
As 21-year-old Matt Goodman from Massachusetts revealed in his touching Twitter post, his father managed to buy him his first glass of beer six years after passing away from cancer.
According to the reports, Matt’s father died back in 2014. Before succumbing to his disease, however, he passed on a ten-dollar bill to his son’s sister and told her to keep the bill and give it to Matt on his 21st birthday.
“Almost six years ago before my dad passed, he gave my sister this $10 bill to give to me on my 21st birthday so he could buy me my first beer. Cheers pops, havin’ this one for you!” Matt wrote.
After the young man’s post went viral and racked up thousands of likes, Budweiser decided to step in and treat Matt to eight crates of beer.
Speaking of the bittersweet moment he drank beer paid for by his late dad, Matt told CBS News that he felt as if his dad was still with him at that moment.
“The morning of my birthday we went out to breakfast and ordered that first beer and it was actually like he was there buying me my first beer,” the 21-year-old expressed.
“It’s just something so typical that my dad would have done. To buy his first beer,” Matt’s sister, Casey, added.
“Him and my dad were so close and he’s had such a hard time anytime that a monumental moment comes up in his life that my dad’s not there.”
