NBA Championship Beer Collabs

Tinker Hatfield & Michelob ULTRA Launch NBA Championship Bottles

— June 2, 2022 — Lifestyle
Just in time for the NBA Finals, Michelob ULTRA and sneaker legend Tinker Hatfield joined forces to create a limited-edition NBA Championship Bottles.

The new beer will only be available to those residing in the winning city. Once the game is decided, " 75 limited-edition NBA Championship Bottles will be unlocked in and only in the winning team’s city, allowing 75 lucky fans to unbox a piece of NBA history." Alongside the memorable bottles, fans will also receive a one-of-a-kind NFT designed and digitally signed by Tinker Hatfield.

Both San Francisco and Boston residents can find “shoebox” style boxes with scannable QR codes in popular bars along the potential champion parade route. Fans can scan the code to enter. If their city wins, on parade day, winners will be notified and the bottles will be exclusively unboxed at the locations along the parade route.
