Beer hat remake

Hubby put this hat in a pile of clothes for me to go through and then get rid of. He picked it up while getting ready for a mission trip to Mexico a few years ago. It was on clearance, so despite the corona label, he decided it would work. I have now taken it over. In the summer I need something to throw on since we are in and out of the pool and or beach all day long. It has that cute ball cap/Cuban hat fit and is super neutral. love it...

I don't drink beer and certainly don't want to be a walking advertisement for them. I thought about sewing something over the word corona but could not decide what to use. I tried to scratch it off with a nail file but that did not work very well. I decided to grab some black paint and mess around with the letters a little. I didn't have a plan, but now it reads "Gapolia". I think after I wash it a time or two and wear it in the sun and pool, it will look a little faded like it used to. I googled the word and gapolia seems to mean something in another language, I don't know what it is.... I probably now have a hat that says toothpaste or something silly.
