Clydesdales coming to Neewport’s Party Source

On November 28th, three 50-foot tractor-trailers will make their home at The Party Source in Newport toting ten Clydesdales, a 12-ton wagon from St. Louis and one Dalmatian.

In partnership with Anheuser-Busch and Jim Beam these famous horses will be available to visit and a holiday photo opportunity will be provided. The Anheuser-Busch Clydesdales are in town to celebrate Budweiser and Jim Beam joining forces for a limited collaboration. Budweiser Brewmasters and Jim Beam’s Master Distillers have created this brew in honor of the 85th anniversary of the Repeal of Prohibition on December 5th, 1933.

“It’s an honor to host the world-renowned Budweiser Clydesdales in celebration of both the 25th anniversary of The Party Source and the 85th anniversary of the repeal of Prohibition. It’s also a chance to celebrate a unique collaboration between two of our biggest brands. said Matt Found, Beer Buyer and Department Manager at the Party Source. “We can’t think of a better way to kick off the holiday season.”

This is a “weather-permits” event.
