Beer maker Anheuser-Busch switched production of beer to water to aid victims of superstorm Sandy.

Some 44,000 cases of water are being sent to New York and New Jersey for free.

“Personally, for me it does mean a little bit more because I do have family that have been affected by it,” Anheuser-Busch plant manager Scott Vail told ABC News.

The company plans on sending 1 million cans of water to the tri-state area from its Georgia-based brewery, according to Fox News.

“When you look at the devastation, this is the least thing that we can do. We’re good at this. This is our way of helping,” Rob Haas, general manager of the plant, told Fox.

Anheuser-Busch has donated water in times of natural disasters since the devastating earthquake in San Francisco in 1906. The brewer has donated 71 million cans of water since 1988, according to Fox.
