From a press release:

“The iconic Budweiser Clydesdales will visit the nation’s capital from Wednesday, April 6 until Sunday, April 10. While in town, the hitch team and red wagon will make appearances at D.C. landmarks including Nationals Park, the Verizon Center and the bustling Southwest Waterfront. Spot the Clydesdales? Use the hashtag #BudClydesdalesDoDC for the chance to win special prizes throughout the week.

During the five-day tour, beer fans will have an opportunity to catch the Clydesdales out and about in D.C. as they celebrate Anheuser-Busch’s new partnership with Nationals Park, Nats Opening Day, National Beer Day and a Washington Capitals home game. This April marks more than 80 years since a six-horse hitch of Budweiser Clydesdales visited Washington to deliver beer to President Franklin Roosevelt at the White House in honor of the repeal of Prohibition.

  • I wonder how that Verizon Center visit works? Will there be a special mega Zamboni brought in afterwards? Just think if all the pooping and tromping.

  • There is also a Budweiser pop up bar across from Bluejacket in Navy Yard on opening day

  • Ashy Oldlady

    I suppose it was inevitable, but the whole over the top Budweiser sponsorship at Nats Park is nauseating. It’s impossible not to associate the name with the Cardinals, whose fans are insufferably smug.

  • I’m not sure that I’d call a large horse made to hang out at a bar all afternoon “lucky.”
