Ever had a beer that tastes like it won 3 Superbowls? Well, get ready because former NFL Quarterback Troy Aikman has big plans to take on big beer. On Tuesday, Jan 4th, Aikman announced the launch of EIGHT, an elite light lager brewed using only organic grains. The low-calorie, low-carb beer is presented to be a “healthier” alternative to many beers on the market. “EIGHT is for the drinker who consistently puts in the hard work.” says Aikman. “These folks, myself included, are conscious of what we put in our bodies,”
The motivation behind EIGHT beer is the lack of organically brewed beer options– as Aikman puts it, “options for a light, refreshing beer that’s brewed with organic ingredients are virtually non-existent.” As a 3x Superbowl champion, it’s no surprise that Aikman takes his health very seriously. The former Dallas Cowboys quarterback, who now resides in Frisco, has plans to take on the big beer industry by offering healthy and refreshing– but tasty– alternatives with EIGHT beer.

How much does Troy Aikman’s EIGHT Beer cost?
Currently, the price point of EIGHT beer hasn’t been disclosed, but it is said to “align with competitors.”
Where to buy EIGHT Beer by Troy Aikman
Unfortunately for many Dallas Cowboys fans around the world, EIGHT Beer will only be available in Texas when it first hits the market. The beer, brewed by EIGHT Brewing Co. in Austin, TX, will be distributed to local retailers within Texas including, HEB Supermarkets.
But don’t get discouraged, yet! It seems that Aikman has plans to expand his beers beyond the Lone Star state. “If we go beyond the borders of Texas,” Aikman tells CNBC, “then we’ll all be excited because that means that there’s a need and demand outside the state.”
