MILWAUKEE -- A 10-game winning streak by the Brewers has one local restaurant ready to serve up free food.  

George Webb is preparing for a possible second-ever 12 in a row hamburger giveaway.  

The promotion unofficially began in the 1940s and then was formalized in 1965.  Legend says that George Webb announced that if his hometown team won 12 in a row, he would give away free hamburgers.

In 1987, the Brewers rattled off 13 in a row to begin the season.  As a result, nearly 170,000 burgers were given away.  

Vice President of George Webb Ryan Stamm says that the grills are ready and he hopes the streak continues.
