We have seen that many bands like AC/DC, Motörhead, Amon Amarth and Sepultura launched their own beverages. Now, Iron Maiden has also joined the club and the band has launched its own beer.

According to the statement from Metal Hammer, Trooper Ale is brewed by the lovely folks at Robinsons Brewery, with the creation of the beer instigated by none other than Maiden frontman and beer enthusiast Bruce Dickinson. 😀

“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,” says Bruce himself. “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.”
