Anheuser-Busch has roots that date back to the mid-1800s with a strong heritage that outlasted the Prohibition era. The repeal of Prohibition in 1933 marks one of the most important anniversaries for Anheuser-Bush and the beer industry as a whole. It also marks the introduction of the Budweiser Clydesdales to Anheuser-Busch when they delivered the first case of post-Prohibition Budweiser.

Continue the Prohibition-era celebration by attending the Brewery Lights Speakeasy Theme Night and visiting the Clydesdales in their stables on Thursday, December 6.
