Cartersville Anheuser-Busch employee tests positive for coronavirus; plant remains open

CARTERSVILLE, Ga. — Anheuser-Busch says one of its workers at its plant in Cartersville has tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus.

“We took immediate steps to isolate this individual and ensure this individual receives the medical attention and support needed,” a representative said in a statement.

The plant brews more than 20 of Anheuser-Busch’s beer brands, including Michelob Ultra Pure Gold, and is the only brewery to brew the Budweiser Heritage brands: Repeal Reserve, Freedom Reserve, Copper Lager, Discovery Reserve and Black Lager.


“Our ability to serve our consumers, retailers, and communities has not been impacted, nor has the safety and quality of our products. We are monitoring the situation closely and will continue to support our employees during this challenging time,” the company said.

On top of beer production, the plant also helps whenever a natural disaster hits the U.S. by converting some of its production lines to bottle clean water to send to areas in need.
