CHRIS KYLE FROG FOUNDATION PARTNERS WITH NINE BAND BREWING CO. TO LAUNCH SPECIALTY BEER

CHRIS KYLE FROG FOUNDATION PARTNERS WITH NINE BAND BREWING CO. TO LAUNCH SPECIALTY BEER Proceeds benefit the foundation’s mission to support military and first responder marriages. MIDLOTHIAN, TX – OCTOBER 30, 2018 – The Chris Kyle Frog Foundation (CKFF) team was joined at The Rustic – Dallas by the Nine Band Brewing Co. crew, and former Dallas Cowboy Jesse Holley, to tap the first keg of “The Badge” which carries CKFF branding. “The Badge” is a beer for men and women of honor as it has the spirit of first responders at its core. The beer is a nod to the time before Texas was a state; men donned badges to bring law to the state and establish peace and safety. This was the pre-cursor to the badges that police, fire and emergency medical service now possess.  Nine-Band Brewing Company’s award-winning brewmaster tailored this honey blonde beer with a light body and a hint of sweetness from a local honey farm. The Allen, TX-based brewery is expanding its footprint across the United States and “The Badge” will be part of that growth initiative.  It will be sold as a canned drink and on tap in select establishments.  A portion of all sales will be donated to CKFF to continue its mission which focuses on strengthening military and first responder marriages. To further extend the partnership, Nine Band Brewing will be holding a Date Night Out this Saturday, November 3rd with “The Badge” on tap.  The Date Night Out is specifically for local military and first responder couples that have approached CKFF. About Chris Kyle Frog Foundation Chris Kyle Frog Foundation (CKFF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Midlothian, TX.  CKFF’s mission is... Read More

Sadly, Chris never got to see the concept he and Marcus developed come to fruition... Read More
