Anheuser-Busch Shipping Water Instead of Beer for Harvey Relief
We've seen this before from Anheuser-Busch. A brewery of theirs in Georgia has stopped production on beer to can drinking water.
The Cartersville, Georgia brewery is shipping canned drinking water to the American Red Cross to help with Hurricane Harvey relief efforts in Texas and Louisiana.
The St. Louis-based beer giant says a truckload of water arrived in Baton Rouge on Monday. More loads will be arriving in Arlington, Texas.
More than 155,000 cans of water total are being sent.
As mentioned earlier, this is nothing new for the company. They periodically stop beer production at times throughout the year to can drinking water at the Georgia facility so its ready to go in times of need.
The company says that it has provided more than 76 million cans of drinking water for disaster relief since 1988.
