Simpson, 27, is now the face of Stampede Light Plus, a beer made by Dallas's Stampede Brewing Co., that includes vitamins, reports the Associated Press. She'll appear in store ads for the beer and will take a 15 percent stake in the brewer.
In a statement, Simpson said that as an entrepreneur, she is "always looking for ways to diversify my portfolio with good ideas and good people."
"Yes, I work out and take care of myself," she added, "but I also like a cold beer once in a while." Bottoms up!
