Anheuser-Busch Halts Beer Production to Provide Emergency Water for Flood Victims.

The world’s biggest brewer halted production this week to make water — rather than beer — to help those affected by a string of deadly storms in Texas and Oklahoma.Anheuser-Busch’s brewery in Cartersville, Georgia, usually ships about 250 trucks of the company’s various beers – including Budweiser and Bud Light – daily. That’s according to NBC News, which reports that 50,000 cans filled with drinking water will come out of the plant in Cartersville, a facility located about 57 miles from Atlanta.

But this week, the company announced it was halting beer production at the Cartersville brewery to instead produce 50,000 cans of drinking water for the Red Cross to distribute across parts of Texas and Oklahoma, where floodwaters have caused at least 37 fatalities and extensive property damage. Cartersville brewery manager Rob Haas told NBC News that the brewery partners with the American Red Cross several times a year to produce cans of relief water. “It’s something we’re uniquely positioned to do in a very timely period,” he said. Red Cross spokesman Jordan Scott told NBC that the drinking water was “critical” to relief efforts, and he said his organization would be working with Anheuser-Busch to figure out the logistics of distributing the water. (Anheuser-Busch has shipped 2,000 cases of the drinking water so far this week.) “Oklahoma and Texas are in an unprecedented situation,” Scott added.
