HOUSTON, TX (Thursday, June 29, 2023) – Anheuser-Busch proudly honors the people and partners that help the company make America’s most loved beers. For more than 165 years, Anheuser-Busch has been an important part of life for communities across the country, relentlessly fueling the $409B beer market and 2.4 million jobs related to the beer industry. As the summer season kicks off, Anheuser-Busch is launching a new campaign that recognizes all parts of its business – people, branding, partnerships, programming and more – that work every day to create a future with more cheers.
“This new campaign celebrates the people that bring our beer to life – from American farmers to those in our breweries, to delivery drivers, merchandisers, sales reps, and servers, among others. The beer industry is made great by the dedicated people that work hard every day, in every community,” said Brendan Whitworth, CEO, Anheuser-Busch. “Our commitment to our amazing network has never wavered – it has only grown stronger. We are looking forward, and it’s time to recognize and salute the people behind the scenes that drive our company and our industry. Because to put it simply, that’s who we are.”
“It’s an honor to be an Anheuser-Busch partner and bring America’s favorite beer to consumers here in Houston,” said John Johnson, President of Silver Eagle Distributors Houston. “As a part of the greater Anheuser-Busch network, we have helped create more than 7,000 jobs, and we’re proud to be a part of this campaign that includes one of our employees and shows the real people that work tirelessly to drive our business and our community forward.”
Anheuser-Busch’s overall commitment is grounded in its strong heritage and tradition of earning its place in the moments that matter – whether sourcing high-quality ingredients from American farmers, honoring those who have served in our Armed Forces or as first responders, providing disaster relief, creating jobs, or supporting a broad array of community organizations. The new “That’s Who We Are” campaign reflects what makes Anheuser-Busch great – its people. Launching in local markets across the country, the campaign recognizes the passionate people behind America’s most loved beers. More than 140 Anheuser-Busch employees, growers, wholesalers, and partners contributed to the making of the “We Make the Beer” ad, showcasing local communities across the United States from St. Louis, MO to Houston, TX and Parma, Idaho to Jonesboro, Arkansas and many more.
Since the company was founded in 1857, the most important ingredient in making Anheuser-Busch’s beer has always been its people. There are more than 65,000 individuals – neighbors, friends, and family – that deserve recognition for the work they do every day.
“In addition to brewing great beer that delights our consumers, the people behind Anheuser-Busch are the ones making a positive impact in our communities. Whether volunteering, supporting local charities, stepping up during natural disasters, or simply being good neighbors, we couldn’t be prouder of our employees and our partners that make our communities stronger,” said Cesar Vargas, U.S. Chief External Affairs Officer, Anheuser-Busch. “As we’ve done for decades, you can count on Anheuser-Busch and our network of independent wholesalers to continue driving economic prosperity and moving our country forward.”.
Adding to Anheuser-Busch’s “That’s Who We Are” campaign, the company recently announced forward-looking actions, including an investment to protect the jobs of its front-line employees and financial assistance for its wholesaler partners.
