Brad Paisley Buys Out Beer Store for Friends Whose ‘Black or White, Relax and Have a Beer’ Message Went Viral

Brad Paisley joined two best friends for a drink over Zoom recently.

News 8 WROC reports that when Brad saw this viral news story he bought out all the beer at AJ’s Beer Warehouse in Henrietta, N.Y. and sent it to two best friends.

Last week Benjamin Smith and Marcus Ellis posted a sign in a Rochester-area driveway that said: “Black or white, relax and have a beer.”

When Brad saw the viral post he bought hundreds and hundreds of dollars worth of beer and had it sent to their house, hours before he surprised them with a Zoom call.



During the Zoom chat Brad said:

“Man, I am so thrilled to meet you, face to face like this. I’m so inspired by you, and we thought we should deliver more beer than you could possibly drink… This is going to be a popular destination on this street. Love and alcohol, those two things just go together.”

“I’m trying to hear out my friends in the black community, that’s what you guys are doing; together, the same thing.”

Brad also sang his new song “No I in Beer” for the pals.
