Iron Maiden have announced plans to release their own brand of beer. The 4.8%-strength Trooper ale in pubs from May, and it will be available at this year’s Download Festival.
Frontman Bruce Dickinson made the following comment on ‘Trooper’ ale:
“I’m a lifelong fan of traditional English ale, I thought I’d died and gone to heaven when we were asked to create our own beer. I have to say that I was very nervous: Robinsons are the only people I have had to audition for in 30 years. Their magic has been to create the alchemical wedding of flavour and texture that is Trooper. I love it.”
