MILWAUKEE -- They bonded over a big Green Bay Packers WIN! Fans from all over cheered on the Packers and made new friends at The Brass Alley in downtown Milwaukee. The Packers head to Atlanta to face the Falcons Sunday, January 22nd after their big 34-31 WIN over the Dallas Cowboys Sunday, January 15th.

More than 100 gathered at The Brass Alley Sunday -- some of them meeting for the first time.

It was a nail-biter of a game, and every cheer and gasp brought strangers a little closer together.

"I`m thinking Super Bowl!" Brian Weston, bar manager at The Brass Alley said.

Sunday's Packers' VICTORY over the Cowboys should've come with a warning for anyone with a heart condition!

"Rodgers said 'we`re going to win them all' and here we are, you know?!" Jacob Welker said.

"Just keep doing what you`re doing! Keep on rolling!" Welker said.

While there were moments of uncertainty, Packers' pride prevailed!

Bar manager Brian Weston said that's what makes this whole season so memorable.

"Instead of just cruising through the season and winning every game or slumping through the season and losing every game, that up and down -- it builds the momentum and excitement," Weston said.

Sunday's game came at a critical time for Milwaukee bar owners, who said it was a difficult December with many snowy weekends.
