The Clydesdales hitch strutted along Washington Street.
HOBOKEN – Jingling bells could be heard heard for several blocks, but it wasn’t an early visit from Santa Claus Saturday in Hoboken. It was the iconic Budweiser Clydesdales with some lager.
The Budweiser Clydesdale made several stops along Washington Street – from First to Eighth Street – delivering cases of Budweiser Reserve Copper Lager.
In 1933, the repeal of prohibition happened, and it marks one of the most crucial moments in history for the Anheuser-Busch and the beer industry. August Busch Jr. And Adolphus Busch III had surprised their dad with a six-hitch Clydesdale hitch, making them the symbol for Anheuser-Busch.
Hundreds turned out to see the hitch make their deliveries Saturday. People followed the hitch for blocks, taking pictures with the majestic animals.
“Those horses will stomp on your face,” said an attendee, astonished by their size.
