Budweiser, the popular beer company, shares many heartwarming commercials with their signature Clydesdale horses. Recently, Budweiser announced that their first baby Clydesdale has been born this year. The Budweiser Clydesdales made their first appearance on April 7, 1933. Now, almost 86 years later, the tradition is still going strong.
The first Budweiser Clydesdales were a gift from August A. Busch, Jr. and Adolphus Busch to their father to celebrate the end of prohibition in 1933. He was so happy to receive the gift, he cried with joy. It is said that is where the saying “crying in your beer” came from.

Reminisce About Old Budweiser Commercials Starring Their Clydesdales
There have been so many hilarious and heartwarming commercials about the Budweiser Clydesdales. For example, in 2004 Budweiser shared an ad that featured a donkey, not a Clydesdale. It was the donkey’s story about his dreams of becoming a Budweiser Clsydese and boy, did it make us laugh!
Another great commercial was from 2013. It featured a farmer and his Clydesdale on the farm, where they were best friends. Do you remember any of these commercials? Which ones were your favorites?
