The beer was locked inside fridges that were opened by a master control when the Baker Mayfield-led Browns took down the Jets at home for their first victory since December 2016 -- a span of 635 days. At least 200 Bud Light cans were in each fridge.
"Dilly Dilly to the Cleveland fans," said Mayfield, who led the Browns to the comeback win in his first regular-season game action since being picked first overall in April's NFL draft. "It's not the only win we're going to celebrate."
Bud Light vice president Andy Goeler said the company "couldn't be more thrilled for the Browns and the city of Cleveland."
"The Browns have shown a lot of heart over the first two games of the season, so it was only a matter of time until they would pull off an epic comeback win like this," Goeler said.
Cleveland police warned fans to behave.
In order to receive a beer, Browns fans had to be in the bars with the fridges before the game ended.
The beer was locked in the fridges for a total of 37 days. Bud Light had planned to change out the beer with fresh beer if the Browns' losing streak continued.
The beer given out Thursday night had an expiration date of Nov. 29.
