Tapping the Artesian City

August 26, 2011 > Posted in Gallery

Beer is 97 percent water. And in Albany, we have plenty of both. Albany-Dougherty County sits atop the Floridan Aquifer, one of the world’s most prolific sources of fresh groundwater. That ample water supply is one of the main reasons that MillerCoors located a brewery here more than 30 years ago. MillerCoors made in Albany is exported all throughout the Southeast and Puerto Rico. The Albany brewery turns out a variety of MillerCoors labels, including Miller Lite, Miller High Life and Coors Light. MillerCoors is one of Albany-Dougherty County’s strongest corporate citizens, earning the EDC’s 2011 Good Life City Award for corporate community citizenship. Nothing says “we have plentiful water” quite as well as The Artesian City – a tagline Albany adopted back in the 1800s – or “we make beer.” Yeah, life is good here.
