NOW: Wisconsinites take advantage of free burgers at George Webb

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – On Thursday, George Webb gave away free burgers at all their locations after the Brewers pulled off 12 wins in a row.

The restaurant estimates they gave out 100,000 free burgers along with thousands of vouchers for those who couldn't make it during the four-hour giveaway.


SOUTHEAST WISCONSIN (CBS 58) -- People all over southeast Wisconsin got free hamburgers on Thursday courtesy of George Webb.

It was part of a promotion to support the Brewers for winning 12 straight games.

Governor Scott Walker got behind the grill at George Webb in West Bend.

The restaurant chain planned to give away 3,000 in every store and people still remember the last time that there was a free burger giveaway.

"I was 18 years old at the time and on spring break helping my dad in his stores give away free burgers. Now 31 years later, we're doing it again. We've always held the prediction. We've always been a chain that backs the hometown team," said Dan Mueller, owner of the West Bend George Webb.

The promotion ran from 2 p.m. until 6 p.m.

If you picked up vouchers for a free burger, those are good starting Friday.
