An unidentified resident handed reporter Casey Stegall a six-pack of Galveston Island Brewing’s Tiki Wheat, exclaimed “Thought you’d like some Galveston beer!” and then ran off.

“Well thank you, that will be nice for after we are done covering this, but, there you, go, there’s just friendly people here,” Stegall relayed back to his studio anchor.

According to The Wrap, Galveston Island Brewing marketing director Charday Van Orstrand said that the mystery woman does not work for the brewery, but called her gesture “Southern hospitality at its finest.”

“She’s sharing the local wealth.”

After the wheat-and-grain infused interruption, Stegall and the brewery discussed it on Twitter and Instagram.
