They did this during Katrina and Andrew.
I am still a little concerned, because they don't usually do it until a disaster is at hand. The water has a limited shelf-life and it takes up valuable warehouse space.
In my opinion, there are only a couple of reasons to do this. Either they know of an impending disaster that will require even more water than they can produce in a few days. That is a very scary scenario, because one or two days of production is more than enough to provide for most disasters. OR, their business is slow, and they are trying to keep the factories running until demand for beer picks up?
Either of those reasons above, points to major issues for the U.S. If economy is so bad that it has affected beer sales, then we are screwed! OR, if a disaster is looming that will take this much water, then we are screwed. Either way, it looks like we are screwed!
Anheuser-Busch’s Atlanta-area brewery is shutting canned beer production Friday, Feb. 25 in Cartersville, Ga., to run approximately 25,000 cases/600,000 cans of water.
...can produce 30,000-35,000 cases (of beer) in 8 hours on a line. A similar load of water takes about two and a half times longer to produce.

This may be business as usual, but I am suspicious by nature, (I am a member of ATS after all), and wonder with FEMA buying up all the Mountain House food as well as all of the threads and news about the New Madrid fault if this is yet another instance of the power players knowing what is about to go down.
