Anheuser-Busch’s brewery in Fort Collins is now the company’s second facility in the United States that can produce cans of drinking water for communities affected by natural disasters and other emergencies.
The Colorado facility joins Anheuser-Busch’s Cartersville, Georgia, brewery and doubles the brewing giant’s capacity for producing emergency drinking water.
The announcement comes just days ahead of Hurricane Florence’s anticipated landfall along the United States’ southeastern coast. As of Wednesday morning, the potentially catastrophic storm was a Category 4 hurricane with winds as high as 130 miles per hour.
Anheuser-Busch says its emergency relief program has provided more than 79 million cans of water since 1988. Last year alone, the program distributed nearly 3 million cans to communities affected by natural disasters.
