Who knew that Iron Maiden was a fan of traditional English cask beer? Now THAT’S metal! In conjunction with Robinson’s Brewery in the UK Iron Maiden has created Trooper Ale which should be available in May. There’s no official word yet whether or not this will hit the US. Start crossing your fingers now.
“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 flavor and texture that is Trooper. I love it.” – Bruce Dickinson, Iron Maiden lead singer
