When that twelfth win happens George Webb will prepare for the free burger day. Details on “the payoff” date and times will be released Monday morning.
When the Brewers won 12 in a row in April of 1987, George Webb restaurants handed out nearly 170,000 free burgers at their locations throughtout Wisconsin. “We don’t know how many burgers we’ll be giving away, but we know we’ll be ready,” stated Ryan Stamm, George Webb’s Vice President and General Manager. Stamm has suppliers ready to deliver all the burgers, buns and condiments they expect to need on “the payoff” day.
