George Webb offers free giveaway if Brewers win 12-straight games 🍔⚾
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A nine-game winning streak by Milwaukee Brewers has George Webb back at it with its "12 in a Row" prediction.
The famous George Webb prediction dates back more than 80 years and has only been realized twice in the restaurant's history, George Webb says.
“Milwaukee has a chance at 12-straight wins when they play Pittsburgh on the Fourth of July,” stated Ryan Stamm, vice president of George Webb Restaurants. “We couldn’t think of a better way to spend the holiday weekend than cheering on our team as they edge closer to 12 straight wins.”
If the Brewers win 12-straight games, George Webb will announce a specific day and time for a free giveaway. A statement from George Webb does not specifically say what the free giveaway will be.
In 1987, Milwaukee surpassed that number with a 13-game winning streak, and George Webb handed out almost 170,000 free hamburgers. Officials say to meet the demand, they ordered more than 25,000 pounds of ground beef and went through 2,868 pounds of onions and 367,180 slices of pickles.
In October 2018, Milwaukee won 12-straight games and free hamburgers were once again handed out to fans. George Webb served up 90,000 burgers and handed out 100,000 free burger vouchers.
The manager at a George Webb in Franklin insists she doesn't know if the company will offer free burgers this time if the Brewers hit 12-wins in a row, but she says they might.
"To get a free Webb burger? Come on! They even freeze 'em, people," Mary Beth Unglaub said. "Yep, we had a couple customers that,t hey say they freeze 'em. They're the best in town, come on."
First things first, the Brewers need to beat the Pirates in Pittsburgh Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
