Would You Drink A “Trooper”?
I’ve always had a passion for Beer!
Light, Dark, Pale, Wheat, you get the picture. So when Rock-stars come out with a Beer, I listen!
First the guys from AC/DC did it.
Now Iron Maiden has the “TROOPER”. Trooper’ ale is currently being crafted by Robinson’s brewery in Stockport, England, home of ‘Old Tom’ strong ale, which was recently named ‘World’s Best Beer’ by Beers of the World magazine. “I’m a lifelong fan of traditional English ale,” states Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson. “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.”
Trooper is a premium British beer inspired by Iron Maiden and handcrafted at Robinsons brewery. Being a real ale enthusiast, vocalist Bruce Dickinson has developed a beer which has true depth of character. Malt flavours and citric notes from a unique blend of Bobec, Goldings and Cascade hops dominate this deep golden ale with a subtle hint of lemon.

Check out what Bruce had to say .
The Charge Of The Light Brigade, which inspired the Iron Maiden song The Trooper, took place at the Battle Of Balaclava (1854) during the Crimean War when 6—British cavalry courageously charged the massed Russian artillery. This gallant but foolhardy assault resulted in a massive loss of life and came about due to a misunderstanding of an order given by the commanding officer, Lord Raglan.
