Prime Minister Stephen Harper collected on his sudsy Olympic hockey bet with President Barack Obama on Friday.

U.S. Ambassador David Jacobson delivered two cases of beer to the prime minister's residence at 24 Sussex Drive in Ottawa.

Owing to Canada's 3-2 overtime victory over the United States in the gold-medal match in men's hockey, the U.S. ambassador brought Harper 24 bottles of Molson Canadian.

"To show there's no hard feelings, the president also threw in a case of Yuengling on top of the Molsons," Jacobson said.

Yuengling is a Pennsylvania brewery called the oldest in the United States. A case of Yuengling was Obama's request if he had won the friendly wager.

The cases of beer are to be donated to the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto, a spokesman for the prime minister said.

Earlier this month, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs wore a Team Canada hockey jersey at his daily press briefing after he lost a bet with Dimitri Soudas, a spokesman for Harper.
