With a majority of Simms product inspired by and tested on local Montana rivers such as the Gallatin, this charitable component is extremely important to both brands and their respective efforts to give back to the places we play.
“At 10 Barrel, we’ve been fortunate to have worked with some of the most notable brands, athletes, and media outlets in the outdoor industry. When we started concepting this lightweight, easy-drinking summer ale, we thought Simms would be the perfect partner” said Andy Goggins, Marketing Director of 10 Barrel, in a statement. “We all love to get out on the rivers, fish, and finish it off at the end of the day with a perfect complement—a Reel Good. The collaboration between 10 Barrel, Simms, and enjoying life on the river provides perfect synergy. We’re also excited to collaborate with Trout Unlimited with a percentage of all sales benefitting the Home Rivers initiative.”
