Budweiser Clydesdales visit the Lehigh Valley
September 11 - 17, 2013
Bud-98-line-up (106K)
      The World-Renowned Budweiser Clydesdales will make several appearances in the Lehigh Valley area and support the Bethlehem Mounted Police. Allentown, PA - Allentown Beverage Company in conjunction with the World-Renowned Budweiser Clydesdales, the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs, the Lehigh Valley Velodrome, the Bethlehem Mounted Police department and the city of Bethlehem announced several appearances by the world-famous Budweiser Clydesdales, the symbol of quality and tradition for Anheuser- Busch since 1933.

    On September 11, 2013 they will appear at a special ceremony honoring the Military. Look for the hitch to be making retail deliveries throughout the Lehigh Valley from September 11 through September 16, 2013. They will appear at Coca-Cola Park for the Gildan Triple-A National Championship Game on September 17, 2013.

    On Thursday, September 12, 2013 there is a tentative route planned for the Budweiser Clydesdales in Bethlehem from 1-3 p.m. The team will begin in the area of the Steel Ice Center on 1st Street on then southside of Bethlehem and continue on to Polk Street, then East Third Street, then Adams Street, followed by West Fourth Street then on to South New Street and over the Fahy Bridge. They will continue around City Hall and turn north on North New Street, then on to West Broad Street, and south on Main Street. The procession will end at the Wooden Match at Main and West Lehigh Streets. There will be various stops along the way at different retail establishments.     The eight-horse team will be harnessed and hitched to the famous red beer wagon also at Valley Preferred Cycling Center during the Valley Preferred Wheels for Hope Charity Bike Ride benefiting Angel 34 on September 14, 2013.

   A fundraiser will be in place to support the Mounted Patrol Unit of the Bethlehem Police Department. Paper horseshoes will be sold to the public and displayed at various locations for the price of $1.00. All proceeds will benefit the Bethlehem Mounted Patrol Unit.

    Each person purchasing a horseshoe will be entered into a drawing to receive a home delivery by the World Famous Clydesdales. The winner will be drawn on Labor Day weekend. The home delivery will be made on Sunday, September 15, 2013. The delivery will include a Budweiser gift pack and a "six-pack" of tickets to the Gilden Triple-A National Championship Game on September 15, 2013.

    The "Gentle Giants", as they are often referred to, will be stabled in the city of Bethlehem. The Clydesdales' appearance in the Lehigh Valley is one of hundreds made annually by the traveling hitches. Canadians of Scottish descent brought the first Clydesdales to America in the mid 1800's. Today, the giant draft horses are used primarily for breeding and show.

    Horses chosen for the Budweiser Clydesdale hitch must be at least three years of age, stand approximately 18 hands - six feet at the shoulder, weigh an average 2,000 pounds, must be bay in color, have a blaze of white on the face and have a black mane and tail. A gentle temperament is very important as hitch horses meet millions of people each year. 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.

Beer Tips

Pouring Beer from a Tap
When pouring a beer from a tap, open the faucet all the way in a quick, smooth motion by grasping the tap handle AT ITS BASE. Pulling the tap handle at the top opens the faucet too slowly, and beer will draw foamy. At the beginning of the pour, tilt the glass slightly and don't let the glass touch the beer faucet. Then straighten the glass as you pour, and top it with a collar of 1/2 inch to 1 inch of foam an you have one great beverage.

Beer freshness
Beer improves with age in the lagering tanks, but not after it's in the package. The fresher your beer is when served, the better your guests will like this beverage.
