Anheuser-Busch has stopped the production of beer for the time being at their Cartersville, GA brewery for a very good cause.

The beer giant will start canning 300,000 cans of water for the people that are currently dealing with Hurricane Florence and are set to send six truckloads of the canned water to North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia to help the victims.

Anheuser-Busch shared the news on their Instagram page today saying, "Our Fort Collins Brewery has been upgraded and will now officially join our Emergency Water Donation Program, enabling us to deliver emergency drinking water even more quickly—from coast to coast." 

This year, our Budweiser @SuperBowl commercial, was more than just an ad. It was a celebration of our employees, and a commitment to doing more to support our communities in times of need. Today, we are delighted to announce that we are officially delivering on that promise.
