Clydesdales hoof it to Hoboken this Saturday


To celebrate the repeal of Prohibition in 1933, the Budweiser Clydesdales will be making an appearance in Hoboken on Saturday, Dec. 8 from 3 to 5 p.m.

The appearance, which will feature the Clydesdales and the iconic red wagon, will take place on Washington Street between First and Eighth streets.

Prohibition was a nationwide constitutional ban on the production, importation, transportation, and sale of alcoholic beverages which began in January 1920 and was repealed on Dec.5 1933.

The repeal of Prohibition also marks the introduction of the Budweiser Clydesdales to Anheuser-Busch when it delivered the first case of post-Prohibition Budweiser in April of 1933.

The Budweiser Clydesdale hitch will be making several stops along Washington Street to deliver cases of Budweiser Reserve Copper Lager. During the stops, fans will have an opportunity to take pictures with the iconic equines.

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.
