To celebrate the repeal of Prohibition, the world-famous Budweiser Clydesdales will be making an appearance in Hoboken, New Jersey on Saturday, Dec. 8 from 3 to 5 p.m. The appearance, which will feature the Clydesdales and iconic red wagon, will take place in Hoboken on Washington Street between 1st and 8th Streets.
The repeal of Prohibition in 1933 marks one of the most important anniversaries for Anheuser-Bush and the beer industry as a whole. It also marks the introduction of the Budweiser Clydesdales to Anheuser-Busch when they delivered the first case of post-Prohibition Budweiser.
The Budweiser Clydesdale hitch will be making several stops along Washington Street to deliver cases of Budweiser Reserve Copper Lager. The beer, which celebrates America’s right to drink following prohibition, is a flavorful American Copper Lager with two-row barley that is aged on Jim Beam bourbon barrel staves to create a toasted oak aroma, deliciously nutty taste with caramel rye and vanilla notes complete with a smooth finish. During the stops, fans will have an opportunity to take pictures with the iconic hitch.
The iconic Budweiser Clydesdales have remained a symbol of Budweiser’s heritage, tradition and commitment to quality for more than 85 years. Since the hitch was created in 1933 as a present to August A. Busch, Sr. to celebrate the repeal of Prohibition, the Budweiser Clydesdales have served as an American icon that celebrates and honors the things that make America special.
Today, the Budweiser Clydesdales make hundreds of appearances around the country drawing a crowd wherever they go. To learn more about the Budweiser Clydesdales, visit the Anheuser-Busch website.
