MillerCoors Celebrates Water Stewardship With “Great Water Month”

Here at MillerCoors, we always say, “without water, there’s no beer.”  We need clean, fresh water to make our quality beers – it’s no coincidence that our breweries are located near excellent water sources, like our Milwaukee Brewery near the shores of Lake Michigan or our Golden Brewery on the banks of the Clear Creek. We feel a responsibility to protect these precious resources not just for ourselves, but for the communities in which we live and work.

That’s why we’ve declared September, “Great Water Month,” when thousands of MillerCoors employees will participate in projects across the nation to protect local water resources and promote water stewardship.  Our employees go off-campus and roll up their sleeves to repair riverbeds, clean up coastlines and remove trash.

September is Great Water Month

Last week, our Chicago and Albany, Ga. campuses celebrated Great Water Month by cleaning up the Chicago and Flint Rivers, respectively.  We worked with dedicated partners, Friends of the Chicago River and Flint Riverkeeper, to monitor the health of the rivers, collect trash and remove invasive, harmful species from riverbeds. Check out the slideshow below to see how employees spent a day hard at work in the great outdoors celebrating water stewardship.
