After the severe winter storm knocked out potable water distribution for the city of Kerrville, first responders asked their friends at Basement Brewers of Texas for help.

From 9 p.m. Thursday to about 4 or 5 a.m. Friday, police officers, firefighters and other city workers stopped by the downtown business to refill buckets of water to deliver to shelters and nursing homes as co-owner Doug Landrum, General Manager Aaron Miller and Assistant Brewer Danny Meier worked to keep up. The business ended up boiling 500-600 gallons of water, Miller said.
