Anheuser-Busch halts beer to make water for Sandy victims
the market, at work.


A metro Atlanta brewery has switched from churning out beer to water to help victims of superstorm Sandy.

Anheuser-Busch plans on shipping 1 million cans of drinking water to New York and New Jersey from its Cartersville brewery.

"It's devastating. We have a lot of employees who have families who have been hurt personally by this," said Rob Haas, general manager of the plant.

It's something Aneheuser-Busch first did to help victims of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. Since then, they've shipped more than 70 million cans of water to disaster areas.

"When you look at the devastation, this is the least thing that we can do. We're good at this. This is our way of helping," said Haas.

It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"
Are they actually making water, as in combining 1 part oxygen and 2 parts hydrogen, or are they just bottling the water that's laying around?
Honestly, i'd like to get my hands on a whole shitload of that stuff for my emergency stores. I'll bet you professionally canned water lasts a long, long time.
How could they do something so inconsiderate Think of the children.

Rep to Anheuser for their actions.
Also those cans are badass where can I get some.

Actually, this is awesome. I may have to buy some beer from them for awhile just to show my appreciation of a business that helps their fellow man, without being forced to do so by the government.

I would trade a couple of my full gas cans in my garage for some of those cans. (too soon?)

As a kid, I experienced the Johnstown flood in '77. (Although we lived just outside of town and not directly hit by it)

We had a local Pepsi bottling plant there and they distributed truckloads of cases of "Pepsi" that contained water. The only problem is that it was carbonated.

(a) It was fun to make Cool-Aid into "soda".
(b) It made for a good prank later to give an unsuspecting person a can of "Pepsi" and watch the reaction of the first sip.
© I guess it was "better than nothing" if you had no water.

It's nice to see people step up. Even if those people are "big business".
