Emergency Drinking Water Program


Helping our neighbors when they need us most gives us PURPOSE BEYOND BREWING.

Anheuser-Busch has a long-standing commitment to support our neighbors during times of need.

Last February, Anheuser-Busch sent more than 100,000 cans of emergency drinking water to communities in Nebraska affected by record-high levels of flooding.

The emergency drinking water was sent to Anheuser-Busch wholesaler partner, Eagle Distributing in Fremont who worked alongside Quality Brands of Omaha to distribute the water locally to those in need.

This donation came from Anheuser-Busch’s Fort Collins, Colorado brewery, which joined the emergency drinking water program last year, to enable the brewer to support communities in need from coast to coast more quickly. Along with the company’s Cartersville brewery in Georgia, the Colorado-based brewery periodically pauses beer production throughout the year to can drinking water to be ready to help communities in times of disaster.

For more than 30 years, Anheuser-Busch has partnered with the American Red Cross to provide emergency drinking water for disaster relief efforts. Since 1988, Anheuser-Busch and its wholesaler partners have provided more than 80 million cans of water to U.S. communities affected by natural disasters nationwide.
