Anheuser-Busch Brewery Halts Beer Production to Provide Water for Harvey Victims

Georgia based Anheuser-Busch Brewery (NYSE: BUD) has halted their beer production and delivered more than 155,000 cans of clean water to those affected by Hurricane Harvey. Since 1988, the company has donated an excess of 76 million cans of clean drinking water where their Cartersville location is the designated brewery spot for the emergency water program.

"Since 1988 we have donated an excess of 76 million cans of clean drinking water," Bill Bradley, Anheuser-Busch's VP of Community Affairs, told TODAY. "The Cartersville location is our designated brewery for the emergency water program — it’s something we’re very proud of."

The American Red Cross has partnered with the company as well as other local independent suppliers. MillerCoors has also provided help to storm victims by sending Texas 50,000 cans of water where trucks will distribute to Red Cross shelters. Employees can also make donations to support victims of the storms and MillerCoors will match all donations made through their microsite for a minimum of $25,000.
