Scheduled to appear for the weekend are the world famous Budweiser
The Anheuser-Busch Clydesdales were formally introduced to August A. Busch
Sr., President of Anheuser-Busch, Inc., by his son on April 7, 1933.
Prohibition had just been repealed, and to commemorate the event, the hitch
thundered down Pestalozzi Street in St. Louis, carrying with it the first
case of post-Prohibition beer from the St. Louis Anheuser-Busch brewery.
Five traveling Budweiser Clydesdale hitches are based in St. Louis,
Missouri; Menifee, California; San Diego, California; Merrimack, New
Hampshire; and San Antonio, Texas. The Budweiser Clydesdales can be viewed
at the Anheuser-Busch breweries in St. Louis, Merrimack and Ft. Collins,
Duke, Captain, Mark and Bud are just a few of the names given to the
Budweiser Clydesdales. Names are kept short to make it easier for the driver
to give commands to the horses during a performance.
