UC Davis is known for its beer program, and some very famous beer mascots made another visit to campus last week. The Budweiser Clydesdales made the rounds through campus and downtown Davis, delivering cases of beer to restaurants and bars and The Pavilion, amid a men's and women's basketball doubleheader, to celebrate the anniversary of the end of Prohibition.
