The Budweiser Clydesdale horses are scheduled to appear on Main Street on Saturday from noon to 2pm, as part of an event marking the loosening of beer regulations in Utah! The key change involves grocery and convenience stores moving to beers of up to 5% alcohol by volume, a stronger category than what had been available for decades. Drinking establishments will also be allowed to have beer of up to 5% ABV on draft.
They will be stopping at No Name Saloon and at the bottom of Main at Collies. Interesting tidbit from the Budweiser Site about the origins of the Clydesdales:
The Budweiser Clydesdales made their first-ever appearance on April 7, 1933. A gift from August A. Busch, Jr. and Adolphus Busch to their father in celebration of the repeal of Prohibition, the presentation of the original two six-horse hitches of champion Clydesdales moved father, sons and drivers to tears. The phrase “crying in your beer” was officially coined shortly thereafter.
