Anheuser-Busch will send 100,000 cans of drinking water to Nebraska communities affected by historic flooding.

Beer giant Anheuser-Busch is sending more than 100,000 cans of emergency drinking water to Nebraska communities affected by the historic flooding.

Two truckloads of the canned water will be sent from the Anheuser-Busch brewery in Fort Collins, Colorado, to Eagle Distributing in Fremont. The distributor will work with Omaha’s Quality Brands to hand out the water to families in need.

Partnering with the American Red Cross, the brewery periodically pauses beer production at two of its facilities throughout the year to can drinking water, which will be ready to distribute to communities in times of disaster.
