Share Your Legacy: Wally the Beer Man

Buying a beer from Walter “Wally the Beer Man” McNeil was a part of the Twins baseball experience for four decades.

Wally got his start selling beer at the Minneapolis Auditorium in 1970. Shortly after that he took a gig pushing suds for the Twins at Metropolitan Stadium, then at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome when the Twins moved there in 1982. Finally, he made the move to Target Field with the team in 2010.

Today, Wally is happily retired, but will always be the king of Minnesota beer vendors. He has no major health issues, but at the age of 85, he needs a little help with things like cleaning, preparing meals and getting around. Since Legacy Home Care has been providing services to Wally in his residence, we asked him to sit down with us and talk a bit about his legacy and how Legacy Home Care and his home health aide, Nicole, have helped him navigate activities of daily living.
