Braxton Brewery to can water for hurricane victims

Braxton Brewing Company will be using their canning line to help hurrican victimes

On Thursday, September 7th, Braxton Brewing Company will be using their canning line for a new purpose -- drinking water.

In partnership with several suppliers, the Covington-based brewery will be filling 1,000 cases of 12 oz. cans with filtered drinking water.

These cans will be sent to Houston and Louisiana to support Hurricane Harvey flood relief efforts.

“Evan (Co-Founder & COO of Braxton Brewing Company) and I had a few conversations with those actively helping in Houston and learned that drinking water was one of their biggest needs,” said Jake Rouse, Co-Founder & CEO of Braxton Brewing Company.

“We’ve always tried to use Braxton as a vehicle for doing good, so we made a few calls to local companies who helped us re-label existing can inventory, pause production, and fill them with filtered drinking water.”

Braxton Brewing Company, along with several other partners, will be donating products and materials to make this possible. Klöckner Pentaplast, Schawk!, Safety Seal Shrink Sleeve Specialists, Fasttrack Packaging, Verst Group Packaging and Integrity Express Logistics have all donated efforts to this cause.

Second Harvest Foodbank in Lafayette, Louisiana will be distributing the canned water throughout Houston and Louisiana on the brewery’s behalf.
