The Anheuser-Busch plant in Cartersville, Georgia has a plan for those in need of water when a disaster strikes. They turn their (3) 2,000 can per minute canning lines into water canning lines. In one day, the 9 million barrel a year brewery can produced about 44,000 cases of fresh drinking water for disaster victims, and here’s the kicker. The company has been doing it for almost 100 years.
The process is fairly simple for the brewery. The conversion takes about 8-9 hours to run clean, potable water into the system. Then you crank up the line and can away. Obviously the cans tested, and marked clearly that this is water, not lager. All 44,000 cans are donated at shipped by Anheuser-Busch. Clean drinking water is always a necessity after a disaster like Hurricane Sandy.
