In response to historic flooding and storms in Texas and Oklahoma, the King of Beers is trying to one-up the King of Kings by turning beer back into water. Anheuser-Busch stopped production at its Georgia brewery this week to produce 50,000 cans of water for the American Red Cross. When reached for comment, the douchebag beer snob at your local watering hole snorted, “Should be easy since its mostly water anyway," before creepily chuckling into the notebook he carries so he can review the hoppiness of some new micro-brew that costs $18 a pint.

The Cartersville, GA, brewery produces cans of emergency relief water a few times a year. The brewery works with the American Red Cross to determine the places most in need. The water is then shipped and distributed to the disaster areas. We cannot confirm whether they hang out long enough to watch as a mother uncomfortably instructs her children how to shotgun an ice cold can of water and then how to properly dispose of the can by belching and crushing it on their forehead.
This is a real thing that exists in non-emergency situations. (via Oldtasty)
If they'd like to join in, maybe Pabst Blue Ribbon could send some of their Chinese bottled water to keep Austin weird and hydrated.
