Anheuser-Busch Trades Beer For For Drinking Water For Victims of Hurricane Harvey

We’ve all been encouraged to trade our beer for a glass of water every now and then. While that might be to help you survive the night out, Anheuser-Busch is practicing what they preach.

They halted production in their Cartersville, Georgia brewery and instead, started filling up cans with good old H20. The effort will ensure that many victims of the horrific floods that are sweeping Texas have safe and clean water to drink. While I’m sure many of those Americans could use a good beer or two after all the destruction and loss they’re dealing with, it’s awesome to see such a big company stepping up and putting their own profits aside.

That’s what America is all about, am I right?

According to the Today show, the plant has already sent over 155,000 cans to cities like Baton Rouge and Arlington, Texas.

That’s 155,000 Americans who are able to access a necessary resource the rest of us are probably taking for granted. While the flood waters rage one, I’ll gladly rage on with some Buds to support a company that supports the rest of us.
