In Partnership with Boomer Esiason & Craig Carton, Smithwick’s Raises a Glass to the Veterans Education Challenge.
As longstanding supporters of the military and first responders, Boomer and Carton chose the Veterans Education Challenge as the beneficiary of their partnership with Smithwick’s.
Supporting veterans’ rights to earn an opportunity for higher education has always been at the heart of the organization, and the contribution from Smithwick’s, as well as the awareness generated by the new beer’s limited time release, will go toward making this a reality.
Here’s what the dynamic duo had to say about their collab.
Boomer: “Last year, I had the chance to travel to Ireland to meet with the Smithwick’s team at the brewing site and help the brewers create a batch of Smithwick’s Blonde Ale,”
“From the first time I sampled Smithwick’s Blonde Ale, I knew Craig and I had to be a part of it. Smithwick’s has an amazing track record with creating quality beers, and we couldn’t be more excited to collaborate with such a longstanding brewer and a great foundation. It’s a win-win.”
Carton: “Over the years, Boomer and I have worked with different charities to help give back to causes important in their lives as well as our own. We’ve always enjoyed working with Diageo in the past, and we thought this Smithwick’s collaboration was the perfect fit for us.”
Where to buy
Ahead of St. Patrick’s Day, the limited-supply release of Smithwick’s Blonde Ale provides consumers of the legal drinking age with another Irish brew to enjoy. Smithwick’s Blonde Ale is available in the New York metro area only, for a manufacturer’s suggested six-pack retail price of $9.99 and only while supplies last. Whether it’s Smithwick’s Blonde Ale with Boomer and Carton this winter, or Smithwick’s Red Ale come March 17, remember to enjoy your beer responsibly.
