Savannah St. Patrick’s 2017: Where to see the Budweiser Clydesdales

March 15th, 2017

Budweiser Clydesdales in Savannah free open public Savannah Mall Where to meet the Budweiser Clydesdales before and after the Savannah St. Patrick’s Day Parade 2017:

* Wed March 15 11AM- 2PM @ Savannah Mall, 14045 Abercorn St. The eight-horse hitch will be harnessed & hitched to the famous red beer wagon @ Savannah Mall arriving at 11AM. The horses will participate in Mini Parade in parking lot @ noon. Free & open to the public.

* Thurs March 16 10AM – 6PM @ Southern Eagle Distributing Stable, 1320 US 80 West Garden City. Free & open to the public.

* Fri. March 17 St. Patrick’s Day Parade in downtown Savannah starting at 10:15AM. Details & the parade route here. 

* Sat. March 18 noon-3PM in Old Town Bluffton SC on Calhoun Street for a King of Beers Parade

* Sun. March 19 10AM-6PM at Southern Eagle Distributing, 1320 US 80W; Savannah, Ga. (Free & open to public)

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

A single Clydesdale hitch horse will consume as much as 20-25 quarts of feed, 40-50 pounds of hay and 30 gallons of water per day.

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.
