DALLAS (AP) - North Texas native Jessica Simpson says she like a cold beer once in a while and has signed on as spokeswoman for Stampede Light Plus, made by Dallas' Stampede Brewing Co.
The singer and actress will appear in ads in stores for the beer and is taking a 15 percent stake in the brewer. The Dallas Morning News says terms were not disclosed.
Lawrence Schwartz, Stampede's president and chief executive, said Simpson is the now face of the brand.
Simpson said in a statement that as an entrepreneur she's "always looking for ways to diversify my portfolio with good ideas and good people."
