    HISTORY

     CLYDESDALES

     

     

    QUINTESSENTIAL DRAFT HORSES

     

    More than 300 years ago, this imposing breed was first developed for farm work in the region of Clydesdale, Scotland. They are most easily recognized for their substantial feather - the long hairs of the lower leg that cover the hooves. Despite a dressy appearance, they are capable of pulling a 1-ton load at 5 MPH.

     

     

     

    AMERICAN ICONS

     

    They heralded a new era of prosperity for Anheuser-Busch, and a weary nation’s return to optimism. From their first appearance in 1933 to their enduring presence on the American landscape, the Clydesdales are more than the symbol of Budweiser beer; they are the living embodiment of America’s great industrial spirit.

    SINCE 1876

        OUR LEGACY
     

    • Our founder, Adolphus Busch, journeyed to America from Germany in 1857, determined to make his dreams come true.

     

    •  
    • After fighting for the Union during the Civil War, Adolphus joined his father-in-law’s business, bringing big, ambitious ideas with him.
    •  
    • In 1879, the company’s name was officially changed to Anheuser-Busch Brewing Association. After Eberhard’s passing in 1880, Adolphus became president.
    •  
    • Before Budweiser was introduced, many Americans were drinking heavy, dark ales. But St. Louis summers were hot – perfect for a palatable, crisp lager. Budweiser’s smoothness and drinkability was a success. Budweiser quickly became wildly popular not just in St. Louis, but in America.
    •  
    • And we’ve stayed true to the recipe ever since.
