Troy Aikman is brewing up a new endeavor. The Hall of Famer, former Dallas Cowboys quarterback, and longtime NFL broadcaster is jumping into the beer business. On Tuesday, Aikman posted a video on Instagram announcing “Eight,”  It’s a 90-calorie light beer, and will be  released starting next month in Texas. The light lager aimed at “health-conscious” drinkers uses organic grains and is considered an all-malt beer.  That means no corn or rice have been used to brew it.   By the way, did you catch the significance in the beers name?  “Eight,”  pays tribute to Aikman’s jersey number through college and with the Cowboys.
