The Budweiser Clydesdales are a group of Clydesdale horses used for promotions and commercials by the Anheuser- Buschbrewing Company. The teams of horses also called ” Hitches” travel around the United States. Other horses remain in their official homes at the company headquarters at the Anheuser-Busch brewery complex in St. Louis, Missouri, or at Merrimack, New Hampshire. In St. Louis, they are housed in a historic brick and stained-glass stable built in 1885.
Usually, there are eight horses driven at any one time but ten horses are on each team to provide alternatives for the hitch when needed.
The Clydesdales were first introduced back in 1933, after the repeal of Prohibition. The Clydesdales have served as living symbols of not just Budweiser but also the unconquerable American Spirit.
They are famous worldwide for their appearances in parades, television broadcasts, and even Presidential Inaugurations.
They are set to make the most important appearance yet- the one right here with you!
