n.— «During disasters, beer and soft drink makers sometimes divert their resources into producing drinking water for survivors. After the Northridge earthquake, one big brewery in LA did this; the same happens back east after floods and hurricanes. Jacob Appelbaum shot this snap of a can of “Floodweiser”—drinking water donated by an Anheuser-Busch brewery in Texas for Hurricane Katrina victims at the Houston Astrodome.» —“Katrina: Floodweiser” by Xeni Jardin in Texas Boing Boing Sept. 8, 2005.
