Anheuser-Busch Sends Drinking Water To Hurricane Sandy Relief

Anheuser-Busch Drinking Water

In response to Hurricane Sandy, Anheuser-Busch is producing more than one million cans of emergency drinking water for distribution to the areas that were heavily impacted by the storm.

According to Peter Kraemer, Vice President of Supply for Anheuser-Busch,

Relief workers and people in the region are in need of safe, clean drinking water, and Anheuser-Busch is in a unique position to produce and ship large quantities of emergency drinking water. Our local distributors help identify those communities most in need, and work with relief organizations such as the American Red Cross to make sure the water gets where it’s needed.

The idea makes sense, given the amount of water AB must process each day, and the fact that they’ve already got a canning process in place to produce and distribute large amounts of liquid. It’s just interesting to see them distribute something that’s not associated with Super Bowls and sports bars.

Convert a Big Beer Draft System Into A Home Brew Mini Keg

One good thing about the Heineken BeerTender, the Miller Home Draft and the Anheuser-Busch Draftmark Tap System is that with a little elbow grease, home brewers can turn them into mini travel kegs.

By removing the label, filling with beer and then recharging the CO2, you can have a gallon of your favorite brew at your disposal, ready for picnics, BBQs, parties and more.

The Danville Beer Club put together a great step-by-step instruction guide to help you through the process of converting a Miller Home Brew, and it’s surprisingly easy once you’re familiar with the pieces and parts that make up the system.

Draftmark Tap System Keeps Your Bud Cold

Draftmark Tap System

Following in the footsteps of the Heineken BeerTender and the Miller Home Draft, Anheuser-Busch recently announced the Draftmark Tap System, a new device that allows you to keep a gallon of Budweiser, Shock Top or Bass Pale Ale in your refrigerator, cold and ready to pour.

Sure, noting beats having your own kegerator at home that’s filled with your own home brew, but at least the big guys are doing something to bridge the gap between the average beer drinker and the future craft beer connoisseur.
