The brewery, located in Cartersville, was asked by the American Red Cross to pause beer production in order to can emergency water, just as the Cartersville facility has previously done during natural disasters, according to WXIA. The water will then make its way to communities in North and South Carolina, a representative for Anheuser-Busch confirmed to Fox News.
“For the last 30 years, we have been working with the American Red Cross and our wholesaler partners to provide clean, safe drinking water for communities hit by natural disasters,” said Michel Doukeris, CEO of Anheuser-Busch, in a news release.
“Earlier this year, we recognized the employees who help make the program possible in Budweiser’s Super Bowl commercial and made a new commitment to expand our capacity to produce safe, clean drinking water for disaster relief at our Fort Collins Brewery. Today, we are pleased to deliver on that promise, doubling our production capacity to help our fellow Americans in times of need.”
