In the 'feel good' file of stories, Anheuser-Busch is stopping beer production to concentrate on providing water for storm victims in Texas and Oklahoma.


Anheuser-Busch said it had stopped beer production at its Cartersville brewery in Georgia late Wednesday night to produce 50,000 cans of water for the American Red Cross. About 2,000 cases, each carrying 24 cans, are en route to communities in Texas and Oklahoma, he added. The water is expected to reach those areas within the next few days.

Meanwhile, Eastern parts of Texas already inundated with rain fall are expecting more showers this weekend.

"Right now our production line is running emergency drinking water instead of beer ... It's something we're uniquely positioned to do in a very timely period."
