The can was designed by DRAKECEREAL.

If you are an avid listener of the Washington Wizards postgame radio show, you will consistently hear analyst Glenn Consor say that the show is sponsored by Michelob ULTRA, an American light pale lager beer part of AB InBev. Michelob ULTRA is the official beer of the NBA.

And now, you are able to buy 25 oz cans that are NBA-themed, including a can for the Washington Wizards. You can take a look at the can’s front and back here.

DRAKECEREAL, an illustrator brand created by Canadian artist Sarah Brown, designed the can. The can features the classic “W” in their first Wizards logo before their current wordmarks were released at the top in the sky. There are a pair of eyes looking down at a basketball net that is on top of the Capitol. The “Rep The District” wordmark is toward the bottom of the can, nod to one of the Wizards’ recent slogans.

Brown also designed the cans for the San Antonio Spurs, Phoenix Suns, Portland Trail Blazers and the Toronto Raptors.

There are 18 teams (17 in addition to the Wizards) with custom-designed Michelob ULTRA cans and three additional designers, Sophia Chang, Christophe Roberts and Chuck Anderson. Cans are available while supplies last in participating stores. Given that these are 25 oz cans, you are most likely to find them in a convenience store like 7-Eleven, Sheetz, Wawa, Royal Farms and the like.

Let us know your thoughts about the can design in the comments below.


Bullets Forever was given a sample can by AB InBEV which owns Michelob ULTRA. Please follow your country’s and locality’s laws regarding alcohol consumption.
