At this rate, fucking Black Veil Brides will have their own beer. It’s at that point this trend will become uncool.
Every band is releasing an intoxicant these days. Why shouldn’t Iron Maiden be able to cash in too?
Real ale fan and history aficionado Bruce Dickinson played a major role in developing the unique flavor of the beer, even visiting Robinson’s brewery in Stockport to keep tabs on The Trooper.
“This collaboration — between two huge British success stories — makes for an ideal and natural match; Bruce Dickinson loves his real ale, and Robinsons Brewery is one of Britain’s most established and respected independent family-owned brewers,” says Oliver Robinson, managing director of Robinsons.
And Bruce Dickinson added: “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.”
The beer will be available come May.
