Anheuser-Busch to increase packaging capacity at Columbus brewery


Anheuser-Busch announced a $20 million investment at its Columbus brewery. 

The investment is part of the brewer’s announcement made earlier this year to invest $1 billion over two years in the company’s facilities to help accelerate the nation’s recovery and drive economic prosperity in communities across the US.

“We’re proud to be a dedicated member of this community since 1968, and this investment epitomises our deep commitment to Columbus and to the broader beer industry,” said Kyle Topping, General Manager, Anheuser-Busch Columbus brewery. 

“Our team of nearly 600 people is excited to continue expanding our ability and capacity to brew some of America’s most recognisable and beloved brands for consumers across the country.”

The investment will bolster the facility’s reputation as a high-quality brewer – increasing and enhancing its brewing and packaging capacity and capabilities. 

An existing bottle line will be modified to also accommodate can packaging to package beer in both 12oz aluminium cans and in 12oz sleek cans. 

The upgrades will also help the brewery to meet consumer demand while reducing its overall environmental impact. 

In addition, already the company’s top producer of non-alcoholic brews, the investment in Columbus will also allow the brewer to produce even more of its industry-leading innovations outside of beer.

“Our planned $1 billion investment in our facilities over the next two years is about supporting our local communities by creating and sustaining jobs as our nation recovers and looks forward to growth and prosperity,” said Brendan Whitworth, CEO of Anheuser-Busch. 

“The Columbus brewery plays an important role in enabling our innovations and producing the highest-quality products for our consumers to enjoy. 

“This investment in Columbus and the surrounding community is one way that we are helping to accelerate our overall recovery.”
