Shoppers buy Brewers Division Championship gear


WAUSAU (WAOW) --  Friday night's game was a huge win for brewers fans.

"Celebrate good times, come on..," sang Brewer Fans at The Great Dane Bar & Grill.

For the fans the Central Division Championship title was a long time coming.

Grant Hoenisch said, "Last time the Brewers won the division I was a senior in high school."

Hoenisch said his Milwaukee pride brought him to Packerland Plus, a sports store.

He wanted to check out the brand new division championship gear.

He wasn't the only one

"I came in early and already had calls left and right asking if we had gear," said Ken Boho, Packerland Plus Employee.

Employees said by lunch time on Saturday, 40 hats and shirts were already sold.

Employee Nate Fiene said, "This is kind of unprecedented, we don't have that on a consistent basis and since this is the first time that the brewers won, this is a pretty big deal."

A big deal that has fans dressed ready for future games, now that finally the Brewers are in the playoffs, anticipation is growing for the next win.

"This is a great victory for us, bring it home guys, your already champions in our hearts...the Brewers are champions, " yelled Brewers Fans.
