The Anheuser-Busch Brewery put beer production on hold this week, instead canning safe drinking water to distribute to flooding victims affected by Hurricane Harvey. More than 50,000 cans of emergency drinking water will be sent from the brewing company’s factory in Cartersville, Ga. The water will be distributed at Red Cross shelters in Baton Rouge, La., where Flash Flood Watch is in effect through Thursday.
