Budweiser's Famed Clydesdales to Visit The Party Source

The Party Source will host the famous Budweiser Clydesdales later this month.

The large liquor and beer store in Bellevue announced Thursday that on November 28, three 50-ft. tractor-trailers will make their home at the Party Source toting ten Clydesdales, a 12-ton wagon from St. Louis, and one dalmatian.

It's a promotional partnership with Anheuser-Busch and Jim Beam.

The horses will be in town to promote a new limited collaboration between the beer and bourbon giants, celebrating the 85th anniversary of the repeal of prohibition in the U.S., which happened on December 5, 1933.

"It's an honor to host the world-renowned Budweiser Clydesdales in celebration of both the 25th anniversary of The Party Source and the 85th anniversary of the repeal of Prohibition," said Matt Found, beer buyer and department manager at The Party Source. "It's also a chance to celebrate a unique collaboration between two of our biggest brands. We can't think of a better way to kick off the holiday season!"

The horses have been associated with Anheuser-Busch since 1933 when August A. Busch, Sr. was surprised by his sons with the gift of a six-horse Clydesdale hitch to celebrate the repeal of Prohibition.

In subsequent promotions in that era, the horses drew crowds that numbered in the thousands.
