On this day in 1933, the 21st Amendment was ratified by Congress—thereby ending Prohibition of Alcohol. To mark the occasion, Budweiser’s enlisted the help of draft horses to deliver beer to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in Washington.
This year, the world-famous Budweiser Clydesdales will roll down Washington Street, as Hoboken—the birthplace of American brewing—commemorates the 85th Anniversary of Prohibition’s repeal.
The event will last from 3-5 p.m. on Saturday, December 8, with the horses traveling up and down Washington Street from 1st through 8th Streets, to deliver cases of Budweiser Reserve Copper Lager. The beer is aged on Jim Beam bourbon barrel staves to, “create a toasted oak aroma, deliciously nutty taste with caramel rye and vanilla notes complete with a smooth finish.”
As the horses stop to make deliveries, fans will have an opportunity to take pictures with the iconic hitch.
