Oskar Blues Brewing posted on its Facebook page that it is shipping 50,000 cans of fresh water to Flint, Michigan, in an effort to help relieve the city’s clean-water shortage.

For more than a year, water drawn from the Flint River leached lead from old lines into homes after the city switched its drinking water. Flint has since returned to Detroit’s system for its water, but officials remain concerned that damage to the pipes caused by the Flint River could enable them to continue leaching lead.

The Michigan National Guard has been called to the city to help deliver bottled water, filters, and other supplies to residents, reports CBS News.
