The cans will go to those in need in Texas and Oklahoma+ READ ARTICLE
The next time Texans and Oklahomans crack open an Anheuser-Busch can, it may contain water instead of Bud Light.
The company has temporarily halted beer production at its Cartersville, Ga. brewery to instead can drinking water for victims of the severe flooding in Texas and Oklahoma. Approximately 50,000 cans are on their way to the two states. The company has a partner in the American Red Cross, which is helping distribute the water to the areas most in need.
Anheuser-Busch says the company switches to emergency production like this several times a year to help in crises. Earlier this month, it sent about 50,000 more cans to those affected by tornadoes and storms in the Oklahoma City area.
Twenty-five people have died in these recent floods, and more are missing.
