Rep. Joe Cunningham (D-SC) got some attention Friday when he tried to bring a six-pack of local beer on to the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives. He explained on Twitter that he’d been attempting to bring it to Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-OR).

Rep. DeFazio co-chairs the House Small Brewers Caucus which boasted 234 members from 43 states as of July 2018.

Politico reporter Laura Barron Lopez later confirmed that the beer transfer was successful.

Many on Twitter sympathized with Rep. Cunningham’s plight.
