NEW YORK, July 6, 2021 -- Michelob ULTRA, the official beer of the NBA, is linking up with legendary sneaker designer, Tinker Hatfield, to bring a new kind of energy to the scene. Just as the NBA Finals come to a close, sneakerheads and basketball fans will have the chance to cop a limited-edition Michelob ULTRA x Tinker Hatfield “Not For Sale” NBA Championship Bottle designed by the man responsible for some of the most classic kicks.
NOT YOUR AVERAGE COLORWAY & DESIGN
Presented in premium packaging that emulates a shoe box, the exclusive NBA Championship Bottle is hand-signed by the sneaker design icon himself and inspired by a combination of the Larry O'Brien NBA Championship Trophy and the classic look of a traditional basketball net. Take a closer look and handwritten etchings of NBA Championship wins over the years can be found. Upon unboxing, fans will be greeted with an iconic original Tinker Hatfield sketch from the design process, giving them a glimpse into how it all came to life.
HOW TO WIN ‘EM
When the final buzzer sounds in the last game of the NBA Finals, the “Not For Sale” drop clock hosted on ULTRATinkerDrop.com and @MichelobULTRA’s Twitter will start. Fans must act quickly to enter for a chance to get their hands on the exclusive bottle… in true sneaker culture fashion, of course.
How limited and exclusive are we talking? Depends on the score. The total number of bottles available to win are restricted to the number of points scored by the winning team in the final game of the 2021 NBA Finals. Each box is numbered for authenticity.

While they may not be sitting courtside, sneaker enthusiasts can score unprecedented access to Tinker first-hand as he reveals the stories behind his greatest sneaker designs, the inspiration behind the Michelob ULTRA “Not for Sale” collaboration and more. The sneaker legend will be heading to Reddit during Game 3 of the NBA Finals. Follow @MichelobULTRA’s Twitter to learn more.
