Beer is good. This seems to be a truth most people can agree upon. Having a beer after a long day can hit the spot perfectly.

Leandra Ruiz likes beer. That’s why she filled out an online contest to get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get the Budweiser Clydesdale’s to deliver her some beer.

She never thought that she was going to win it, so she decided to give up beer for Lent. A questionable decision but you can’t fault her for her strong moral compass.

A few weeks later, she had the Clydesdales right in front of her home. Funny how the world works, right?

Ruiz was happy to see them come by but wasn’t terribly surprised she won. Why you may ask?

“I’m excited, but I’m not shocked that I won. We have a lot of small kids on this street and I thought it would be neat if we had won it. And they came, so I’m glad I signed up.”

Many of the neighborhood kids showed up and walked by the side of the Clydesdales as they walked around the block. Ruiz herself got a spin in the carriage that delivered her beer. Not an opportunity many get considering those horses aren’t put on display very often.

An odd contest ended up turning into a community event. Who says beer isn’t the best way to bring people together?
