The Anheuser-Busch plant in Bartow County will spend $85 million to expand its brewing capacity and create 12 new jobs, according to the Georgia Department of Economic Development.
“Anheuser-Busch is a source of pride in Georgia’s advanced manufacturing lineup, and this Cartersville plant expansion will allow continued competitiveness within the beer industry,” said economic development commissioner Pat Wilson.
Kevin Fahrenkrog, the senior general manager of the Anheuser-Busch Cartersville Brewery, said, “The U.S. beer industry is back to growth, and over the next three years, we will expand the brewery’s capabilities to brew some of our best-selling brands right here in Georgia.”
Anheuser-Busch’s Cartersville plant, which opened in 1993, brews more than 20 of the company’s brands and also cans emergency drinking water for disaster relief.
