On March 30, 1950, in commemoration of the opening of the Budweiser’s Newark Brewery, a Dalmatian was introduced as the Budweiser Clydesdales’ mascot. Today, a Dalmatian travels with each of the Clydesdale hitches (East Coast, West Coach, St. Louis) perched atop the wagon, proudly seated next to the driver.
