Talk about pulling at your heart-strings. Anheuser Busch just released is 2018 Budweiser Super Bowl commercial and it will make you proud of the Cartersville brewery. The commercial features the local plant along with General Manager Kevin Fahrenkrog and employees as they work to provide cans of clean drinking water in response to natural disasters.
From Budweiser: Budweiser released its Super Bowl LII commercial showcasing Anheuser-Busch employees, who together over the past 30 years have helped provide over 79 million cans of clean drinking water in response to natural disasters. The commercial will be timed with a new company commitment to add a second brewery to its emergency water program to increase its disaster relief efforts by the end of the year.
Employees are the driving force behind the Anheuser-Busch emergency water program, which is centralized in its Cartersville, GA brewery. Together with the help of century-long partner, the American Red Cross, they deliver safe, clean drinking water to cities affected by natural disasters. In 2017 specifically, donations supported those in Houston, Puerto Rico, California and Florida. The same production and logistical capabilities used to can and deliver beer across the country makes the company uniquely equipped to do its small part by providing a vital necessity – clean drinking water.
Since 1988, our employees have helped provide more than 79 million cans of water to cities across the U.S. that were impacted by natural disasters. But there’s more to do. By the end of 2018, our brewery in Fort Collins, CO will be joining our brewery in Cartersville, GA to deliver even more clean drinking water to communities in need.
