CARTERSVILLE, Ga. — Anheuser-Busch announced Monday that it has reached a $13 million investment in its Cartersville brewery this year, which has gone toward ongoing capital projects designed to increase capabilities and support ongoing improvements at the brewery.

The new projects include strengthening the brewery's "beyond beer" and craft production capabilities, as well as upgrades to its facility infrastructure and equipment that improve efficiencies to help sustain the longevity of the brewery.

"For more than 165 years, Anheuser-Busch has been investing in our people and in our communities – that's who we are," said Brendan Whitworth, CEO of Anheuser-Busch. "The investments in our Cartersville Brewery will help us continue to drive economic prosperity and support good-paying jobs in Georgia for years to come."

Anheuser-Busch has been a major employer and a member of the Cartersville community for 30 years, and the brewer continues to reiterate its commitment through ongoing investments like this one. The $13 million invested throughout 2023 includes continued enhancement of production capabilities like dry hopping for key craft brands across Anheuser-Busch's portfolio, can variety packing, and bottling for Kona Big Wave, among others.

The investments also include energy systems upgrades that will increase efficiency and reduce fuel usage.

"The investments we have made in our brewery this year are benefitting our employees as well as our broader Georgia community," said Jennifer Logan, senior general manager at the Anheuser-Busch Cartersville brewery. "The upgrades to our brewing capabilities and facility infrastructure will continue to unlock new innovation capabilities at our brewery and position our team to continue producing the highest-quality beer nationwide."

This milestone in ongoing funding builds on the success of the brewer's capital expenditure program, which included investing $1 billion over two years in its facilities across the U.S. to help accelerate the nation's recovery and drive economic prosperity following the pandemic. Across the U.S., Anheuser-Busch operates more than 120 facilities, including flagship breweries, agricultural facilities, and craft partner breweries across 24 states.
