In wake of power worries, Miller ships beer to California

Published on .

Because of power outages and the rising cost of electricity, Miller Brewing Co. has begun shipping beer to California from breweries in Texas, North Carolina and Georgia. Cliff Amos, community affairs manager for Miller in Fort Worth, said the three breweries are expected to have shipped about 450,000 cases of beer to California by the end of January. He said extra production for California began in the middle of January and could run through February. "We can produce and ship beer from Texas and points east cheaper than they can actually make it in Irwindale [a surburb of Los Angeles]," he said.
