February 23, 2011 – Budweiser Clydesdales Visit Kemah | Kemah

The world-famous Budweiser Clydesdales, the symbol of quality and tradition for Anheuser-Busch since 1933, paid a visit to the City of Kemah. Arriving and unloading at the Kemah Visitors Center, these gentle giants had fans following them throughout the Kemah Boardwalk and the Lighthouse District. The eight-horse team was harnessed and hitched to the famous red beer wagon which delivered beer to Kemah restaurant and bars. 

Listen in to Talk of the Bay as we visit with Adam Bogan with Del Papa Distributing.

The team rolled out at 2pm while hundreds gathered to watch as the riggings come off and horses were backed in the trailers. The also famous Dalmatian, “Brady”, that rides with the team got a lot of attention too. He guards the horses and rode front and center in the wagon. A tradition since 1933, these beautiful animals are still a breath taking experience.
 
Horses chosen for the Budweiser Clydesdale hitch must be at least three years of age, stand approximately 18 hands - or six feet - at the shoulder, weigh an average of 2000 pounds, must be bay in color, have four white legs, and a blaze of white on the face and black mane and tail. A gentle temperament is very important as hitch horses meet millions of people each year.

A single Clydesdale hitch horse will consume as much as 20-25 quarts of feed, 40-50 pounds of hay and 30 gallons of water per day. Each hitch travels with a Dalmatian. In the early days of brewing, Dalmatians were bred and trained to protect the horses and guard the wagon when the driver went inside to make deliveries.
