Anheuser-Busch, a brewing company halts beer production to provide drinking water to the flood victims
Water instead of beer? Nice indeed! This is what Anheuser-Busch, an American brewing company is doing. Anheuser-Busch is producing cans of drinking water at Cartersville brewery in Giorgia, to be distributed to the flood victims in need of clean drinking water in Texas and Oklahoma. The water production has been already started and about 50,000 cans of water should be delivered to Texas and Oklahoma within a few days.
Right now our production line is running emergency drinking water instead of beer. Relief workers and people in the region are in need of safe, clean drinking water as they work to recover from the storms, and this is one way Anheuser-Busch can help our friends and neighbors, said Rob Haas, senior general manager at Cartersville.
Anheuser-Busch in Cartersville is the one, that typically produces water to help the victims of natural disasters. In 2012 it produced water to help victims of Hurricane Sandy even though the company has a brewery in Newark, NJ as well.
For the logistics of the water shipments to the areas in need, Anheuser-Busch has partnered with the American Red Cross. What best can be done to serve the humanity than to serve with water, when we all know that ‘Water is life.’
