Budweiser Beer Production Halted: Brewer Now Canning Safe Drinking Water for Hurricane Victims

The Anheuser-Busch Brewery put beer production on hold this week, instead canning safe drinking water to distribute to flooding victims affected by Hurricane Harvey.

More than 50,000 cans of emergency drinking water will be sent from the brewing company’s factory in Cartersville, Ga., a spokesperson for Anheuser-Busch said to FOX5.

The water will be distributed at Red Cross shelters in Baton Rouge, La., where Flash Flood Watch is in effect through Thursday, according to the National Weather Service.

“Throughout the year, we periodically pause beer production at our Cartersville, Ga., brewery to produce emergency canned drinking water so we are ready to help out communities across the country in times of crisis,” said Sarah Schilling, brewmaster at the Anheuser-Busch brewery in a statement.

“Putting our production and logistics strengths to work by providing safe, clean drinking water is the best way we can help in these situations,” she said.

Anheuser-Busch halted beer production to can water during natural disasters before, including during flooding in Louisiana, wildfires in California and Hurricane Mathew.

    THIS IS NEWS????????? To hell with halting the production of beer. Since they cannot trust the water being safe for beer they are going to can it for people to drink in the flood ravaged areas?
    What an asinine thing to do. This site thinks this is important?

    THANK YOU BUDWEISER!!! THIS IS A MOST AWESOME THING YOU ARE DOING. ANYTHING OTHER COMPANIES HAVE TO CONTRIBUTE WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED BY THESE PEOPLE.
    I HAVE BEEN FLOODED BEFORE AND IT IS A NASTY, BACK BREAKING, TIME CONSUMING LOSS. NOT TO MENTION ALL THE LOSS OF MEMORIES, MOMENTOS, ETC. SOME PEOPLE ARE EXPERIENCEING LOSS OF LIFE AS WELL. THIS IS GOING TO BE A TREMENDOUS LOSS TO SO SO MANY PEOPLE. LET’S HOPE OTHER COMPANIES STEP TO THE PLATE AND DONATE MONEY, CLOTHING, LABOR, FOOD AND A LOT OF LOVE. THESE PEOPLE NEED IT.

    They have done this before they sent a lot of canned water to the area I was lining in in February 1994 after an Ice Storm.

    I went to the budweiser company in houston because my husband is a truck driver and delivered there yesterday. They told him to go get water in the front and the security lady told me the water was for employees only. Very disappointing.
