The founder of Corona died and left millions to everyone in his home village in Spain


Good news if you live in this small Spanish town. 

Antonino Fernández Rodríguez wanted to do something meaningful for those in his poverty-stricken hometown of Cerezales del Condado in Spain. He certainly went above and beyond. 

According to The Daily Mirror, the beer billionaire gave 80 residents of his home town each a gift of close to $2.5 million when he died earlier this year. 

Fernández founded Corona in 1925. Before moving to México in 1949. 

He was 99 years old when he passed away. He was thought to be worth over $2 billion. 

Some online are using Fernández's kindness as an excuse to crack open a beer.
