(CNN) - A small town in Wisconsin with a connection to actress and comedian Betty White, who died last week at age 99, has been honoring her over the years with her own beer.

It’s called “Blonde Betty.”

Customers at the Commerce Street Brewery Hotel in Mineral Point have been buying beers for her over the years so if she ever visited one day, there’d be free drinks waiting for her.

They kept track on a chalkboard, and at last check it was up to 41.

The brewery said it’s letting people buy her beers through January, and will then donate the proceeds to a cause White loved - one benefitting animals.

As for the town’s connection to White, her third husband, Allen Ludden, grew up in and is buried in, Mineral Point.

The couple was married for 18 years until Ludden’s death from cancer in 1981.

She never remarried.
