Iron Maiden Launch Their Own Beer
Bruce Dickinson introduces the 'Trooper' ale

It's been nearly 30 years since Iron Maiden unleashed "The Trooper" on Piece of Mind, and now the metal giants are releasing a new brew bearing the track's name. Collaborating with Robinsons Brewery in England – who trace their roots to the 19th century – Iron Maiden has crafted Trooper, a new 4.7% ABV ale that touts notes of citrus and a blend of Cascade, Bobec and Goldings hops.

"As a fan of traditional English cask beer, I thought this could actually be something really exciting," says Dickinson. "We could actually develop a proper, real, long-term beer." There's no word on when the beer will be out, but the video points at both a bottle and cask release for "Trooper."
