Packers alumni will take part in the toasts at each bar. In Dane County, events will be held at the Silver Eagle in Monona, Headquarters in Oregon and the Draft House in Verona, according to the release.

Packers and Miller Lite representatives will also be at each event to lead the toasts, thank fans and distribute giveaway items, though what type of giveaway items or how many were not specified Wednesday night.

The Madison-area toast events will feature former Packers center Frank Winters, the team said.

Toasts are expected to take place at 7 p.m. at the Silver Eagle, 8 p.m. at Headquarters and 9 p.m. at the Draft House, however, the release said times are approximate and subject to change.
