Love em or hate em, nobody should have anything negative to say about AB on this particular topic.
Props to the big boys for doing good when they have the power to do so for those in need. Now for the joke, when's the Platinum version coming out? Memo to Perrier, how about a saison in 2013?
Hey guys. I've actually got this on tap in my kitchen right now. It's pretty solid.
Bud Platinum Ultra Light its quadruple filtered to get rid of all the taste, but its in a can so you can take it golfing and its quite thirst quenching.
Also saw this on the chive
I am wondering what happens when an affected BA who has boycotted all BMC products receives this aid. Deny your family water, or sell out? Decisions Decisions.
Well, I cant speak for other beer blogs, but I'm just some asshole from Jersey who saw it somewhere else and didn't see it here. Cheers, bud.
Rumor has it they're going to make a movie about it...GI Sofie's Choice.
If ever you needed a definitive answer to the question: which is more expensive to use, cans or bottles, you now have the answer. If bottles were cheaper, AB would be bottling water for Sandy relief.
Yeah, all jokes aside, It is good that AB comes in and helps for situations like this. Its funny to poke at their beer being close to water, but they are helping a huge amount of people by doing this.
I also agree with this.. "AB helped during a disaster, lets help them in return." Theres plenty of people that do anonymous donations so people won't think they do it to benefit themselves, maybe AB sees this as an opportunity for cheap ass hell marketing..
All you people making jokes or ridiculing AB for this are pathetic.
Get used to it. There are some folks so twisted with delusional armchair revolutionary zeal, that were ABI to cure Lung Cancer and Breast Cancer they would complain they didn't also cure Pancreatic cancer, and would not take the treatments themselves to protest that Bud hogs shelfspace.
ABI is low hanging fruit for those whose main exercise is raising glass to mouth. I bet not one, NOT A SINGLE ONE, of these "boycott ABI people" ever protested anything really important in their lives. I bet not one of them missed a day of work to join the Occupiers, nor any other real protest against actual corporate/other illegalities.
Kudo's to ABI for this help when help is needed, and to all the craft brewers out there who did the same.
They are ABI's own Press Releases - Anheuser-Busch Producing More Than One Million Cans of Emergency Drinking Water for Areas Affected by Hurricane Sandy (from AB's website's News Release section) - and I've been reading about similar donations during emergencies for decades, as noted in the PR itself:
Time to sell my stock in "yellow food color #5".
That's awesome of them to do. Kudos to them, I really like to see big corps doing things like this.
With that said.. i'm still cracking up at some of the jokes! A+ some of you! Some others.. work on your jokes
I wonder why they are canning water in GA to ship to NJ. They could can it in Newark.
a genuine cheers to AB, and a decent chuckle of a thread.
Anheuser-Busch has a long tradition of bottling and canning water during disasters. And I am glad that AB/InBev is continuing that tradition. It is great community relations.
