We’ve spent some time talking about the perks of being a small craft brewery, and with all of the craft beer excitement, it’s easy to forget the benefits of being a huge company with plenty of resources in your control.
Anheuser-Busch is reminding us that big companies have the ability to give back in a way that smaller businesses can’t always afford. They were using one of their plants in Georgia to can beer, and now they are busy putting water in cans to support Sandy victims instead (about 44,000 cases.) It took them between 8-12 hours to switch the plant from a beer-making machine into a relief effort. Anheuser-Busch has a history of helping out people in need, and has been donating water for over 100 years.
We’ll be honest – this definitely makes us want to buy some of their beer. It’s nice to know that big brands care, and it’s nice to think that some of the money we spend on a 6-pack could go to helping send water to New York and New Jersey. Huge props to Anheuser-Busch, and all of the victims are in our thoughts.
