LONGMONT, Colo. – Oskar Blues Brewery is pausing its beer production in order to make cans of water for those affected by the remnants of Hurricane Harvey in Houston.

The Longmont-based brewery is halting its beer production for 20 hours, which will allow the company to product 88,000 cans of water.

The cans are donated by Colorado-based Ball Corporation.

A representative for Oskar Blues said the cans of water will arrive in Houston by the end of the week.

Other breweries around the country are doing the same. Anheuser-Busch is sending more than 100,000 cans of water to Texas and MillerCoors shipped 50,000 cans.
