Clydesdales in FairmountAugust 31, 2012
The big festival that is taking over my neighborhoodand forcing all residents to flee this weekend is sponsored by Budweiser, so to make it up to us, they paraded the clydesdale wagon and horse team and visited a bunch of bars in the hood.
As a beer
dork historian I thought it was pretty neat, and so did the kids. It was cool seeing them clomp down 23rd Street, just as they did a hundred years ago, pulling wagons loaded with kegs from Brewerytown to establishments in Center City. Made me proud to be a American, and more importantly, an American beer consumer.
