Mikkeller Brewing NYC to Release A Winner Is You Pale Lager

NEW YORK — “A Winner Is You” is a popular catchphrase used in online conversations to congratulate someone else’s accomplishment, oftentimes in sarcasm. The catchphrase “A Winner is You” hails from the 1986 NES game Pro Wrestling, wherein the player was given the congratulatory message after beating the match opponent.

“A Winner Is You” will be the name of a beer brewed specially for New York gamers by Mikkeller Brewing NYC. It is a beautifully delicate, yet full-flavored pale lager brewed with the classic German hop, Hersbrucker.

At 4.5% ABV, “A Winner Is You” is a perfect easy-drinker to enjoy while viewing any sport, whether that be a Sunday football game or a gaming tournament.

This limited-edition beer will be available exclusively at the NYXL Shop & LAN (472 Atlantic Ave) and Hollow Nickel (494 Atlantic Ave) in Brooklyn, NY from November 15 to December 23.
