CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Dallas Cowboys legend Troy Aikman is coming to Corpus Christi to promote his new Eight Elite Light Lager beer.
It will be a busy day for Aikman. He will make his guest appearance at Politics at 2:10 p.m. He will then head over to Murdy's Social around 2:50 p.m. and will end his Corpus Christi bar tour as a guest bartender at Brewster St. Icehouse Downtown.
Aikman's team says his beer has a very slight sweetness with a slight fruitiness to it as well.
The 55-year-old former Cowboys quarterback first announced in January 2022 his new beer, which he calls a low-calorie, light beer aimed at the health-conscious consumer. He said he assembled a team with the goal of creating a beer that didn’t force drinkers to jeopardize their otherwise healthy living decisions.
According to the official website, Eight Elite Light Lager is made from organic grains and antioxidant-rich hops while boasting a mere 90 calories and 2.6 carbs per 12-oz. serving. Can pictures on the site also note that the beer has a 4% ABV and is made up of 100% organic grains.
Brewsters is asking that no one ask for autographs during the event.
