Budweiser Clydesdales coming to Fairfield

By Chris Macias

Some of the biggest icons in the world of beer are coming to the area. The Budweiser Clydesdales are coming to the Anheuser-Busch Fairfield Brewery Tour Center (3101 Busch Dr., Fairfield) on Jan. 29. The history behind these horses dates back to 1933, when August Busch, Jr. presented a team of Clydesdales to his father to commemorate the end of Prohibition. More fun facts: each Clydesdale must be at least 4-years-old, stand 6 feet tall and weigh between 1,800 and 2,300 pounds.

After some photo opportunities with the Clydesdales, a complimentary tour will be offered of the Anheuser-Busch Fairfield Brewery. Guests of ages 21-and-up will also get to sample some brews.
