Anheuser-Busch Brewery cans water for Hurricane Florence relief

September 12, 2018

Anheuser-Busch Brewery in Cartersville, Ga. will be delivering 300,000 cans of drinking water to Hurricane Florence victims per request of the American Red Cross according to 11Alive.

Due to its capacity to largely produce Anheuser-Busch, the plant has been the main brewery used for producing emergency drinking water for victims of a number of national disasters over the last 20 years. The brewery has postponed beer production to prepare for Florence.

“This year, as part of Budweiser’s Super Bowl commercial launch, we committed to expanding our emergency drinking water program,” Vice President of Community Affairs for Anheuser-Busch Bill Bradley said. “Today, we’re pleased to be officially delivering on that promise, doubling our production capacity to help our fellow Americans in times of need.”

The brewery has doubled their emergency drinking water production by converting their Fort Collins Brry in Colorado to the same level as their Cartersville location.

According to Anheuser-Busch the process to convert the Fort Collins Brewery from beer to drinking water production took months but will enable the company to produce more cans of water for national disasters when they strike.
