They might be in the middle of the Great Beer War of 2019, but at the end of the day, Anheuser-Busch and Miller Coors know where their priorities lie.
With the great people of this country, and right now, those same great people in Nebraska and Iowa need some clean drinking water after a bomb cyclone left the area ravaged by devastating levels of flooding.
According to USA Today, Anheuser-Busch has donated roughly 250,000 cans of water to communities in Iowa and Nebraska, while MillerCoors has chipped in with another 100,000 cans of their own. That’s almost 35,000 gallons of water to communities that have been left without it.
Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts this week called the floods “the most widespread disaster we’ve had in our state’s history.”
“Access to safe drinking water is critical and prioritizes the safety of everyone, especially in times of crisis,” said Michael Nordman, community affairs manager at MillerCoors. “Through the donation of the water cans, we aim to provide comfort and relief to Iowa residents impacted by the flooding.”
