A little Clydesdale History:

First introduced in 1933, after the repeal of Prohibition, the Clydesdales have served as living symbols of not just Budweiser, but also the unconquerable American spirit.

Famous worldwide for their appearances in parades, television broadcasts, and even Presidential inaugurations, they’re now set to make their most important appearance yet – the one with you!
