Anheuser-Busch sending 150,000 cans of drinking water to flood-impacted areas

Anheuser-Busch is reaching out to flood victims in our area.

Anheuser-Busch is doing their part to help flood-impacted areas of St. Louis by delivering 150,000 cans of drinking water.

On Wednesday, the cans will be delivered to St. Louis, Cape Girardeau and Swansea, and distributing partners will work with the Red Cross to get the water into the hands of those who need it most.

“As the home of Anheuser-Busch and Budweiser, the St. Louis community means so much to all of us at Anheuser-Busch,” Jim Bicklein, General Manager of the A-B St. Louis Brewery, said in a press release. “Putting our production and logistics strengths to work by providing clean, safe drinking water is the best way for us to help our neighbors right now.”

The water comes from their Cartersville Brewery in Georgia, which periodically pauses production to can water.

A-B water donation dates back to the 19th century, and in 2016 alone, A-B donated 2 million cans for the Louisiana Floods, California wildfires and Hurricane Matthew.
