A 97-year-old lady who lives in the Mechelen region of Belgium has become famous throughout the country because she has revealed her secret of her youth: the elixir of life with hops! "I don't take medicine and the doctor told me I can continue drinking," said the sprightly old woman.
The 97-year-old beer-loving woman is named Robertine Houbrechts and was firmly convinced that this memorable habit of hers helped her to live her old age peacefully. She went to the bar run by Fanny Waegemans every night to order her favorite beer. In the quieter evenings, when the atmosphere was calmer and more relaxed, the woman came to drink 15 beers (one after the other), while in the more festive and lively evenings of the weekend, Robertine let himself go, drinking more than twenty beers.
22 beers a day keep the doctor away
Her favorite beer was Jupiler and there was no night when she decided to give it up. Her 97th birthday was celebrated in a truly incredible way at the popular le Floreal bar in Muizen, where the most avid drinkers in the country gathered because they wanted to witness her exploits. AB Inbev, a Belgian beer company, on the occasion of her birthday decided to give the woman a 20-liter barrel to thank her for being the best customer in the whole country.
Granny still took a vow for alcohol. She uses it as a panacea for all ills: “To digest better, I drink beer. In case of loss of appetite, I drink white wine. If I have low blood pressure, I drink red wine. If it's high, I drink scotch. When I have a cold, I drink grappa. "" Madam, but when do you drink water? "" I've never been so sick "
Robertine's choice to drink so many beers at her age could be considered dangerous ... as it can be for so many women and men of her age. The woman, however, had the ability to handle alcohol in a truly unique way. She had also talked about it with her trusted doctor, who had not denied the possibility of relaxing and having fun in her way: with 22 beers a day.
