SOCHI, Russia, Feb. 11 (UPI) --
Canadians are doing well in the medal count, and they get free booze?
Canadian Olympians craving a cold one can get a free beer from the fridge at Canada's Olympic House in Sochi, where Molson has placed one of its high-tech dispensers.
But it's not for international use. Prospective beer drinkers need to swipe their Canadian passport for the fridge to open.
See it in action here:
“We knew Sochi would be a great fit for the passport fridge, and Molson Coors has been long term partners with the Canadian Olympic Committee,” Molson Coors spokesman Forest Kenney told USA Today
. “As part (of) our collaboration, they invited us to play a role in the hospitality at their official Canada House in Olympic Village. The photo you may have seen circulating is actually one of the folks from our team at Canada House, using her passport to open the fridge.”
