Before I was 21, we went to tour a Budweiser facility. I enjoyed the tour. The thing I most remember is seeing the Clydesdale horses. They were so awesome to see, so majestic, so big! They were beautiful animals. The tour showed us the process of brewing the beer and then packaging it and everything; it was really cool. At the end of the tour, if you were 21, you could sample some of the beer, and then they were selling some if you wanted to buy. I couldn’t try it because I wasn’t 21, but it made me want to try it. Once I turned 21 and could drink it, I did try it. I want to go back and try it there at the facility.
