Like Budweiser Beer in the U.S., Carlton and United Breweries (CUB) in Australia also has a famous team of Clydesdale horses. However, after 65 years this team of drafts are being retired. Three of the six horse team are older and their trainer for the past 34 years, Glen Pate, is retiring. Given the flux of retirements, the company made the decision to end the tradition entirely.
“With the retirement of Clydesdales Murphy and Harro, and in the near future Andy, CUB has decided that now is the right time for the Carlton Draught Clydesdales program to finish,” said CUB corporate affairs manager, Sabine Wolff.
