Iron Maiden Celebrate 10 Years Of Beer With New Trooper X Imperial Stout
Iron Maiden’s Trooper Beer is turning 10 years old on May 9 and the band is celebrating with a pretty strong one. The band will release their new Trooper X Imperial Stout, which clocks in at a hefty 10% ABV, on May 9. Trooper X Imperial Stout was created by Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson alongside Robinsons’ Head Brewer Martyn Weeks.
“Trooper X is packed full of roasted malt flavours which perfectly balance the complex and delicious aromas,” said Weeks. “This is the ultimate super smooth sharing beer which, if you can resist drinking straight away, will mature in the bottle and get even better with age.”
Trooper Beer has been extremely popular over the years, having sold over 35 million brews since its inception in 2013.
Bruce Dickinson said, “I’m immensely proud that Trooper has reached this milestone. To get to 10 years is a brilliant achievement, and I’m having a great time working with Robinsons and our partners around the world coming up with some fantastic beers! Thanks to our fans, Trooper has become a permanent feature with beer lovers around the world, and it’s still growing.
“We are delighted to add Trooper X to the roster and there’ll be more beers to come as our Trooper family continues to expand and provide new beers and choices to our fans everywhere.”
The Trooper X Imperial Stout will be available through Iron Maiden’s website, as well as Drink Aisle’s website.
Elsewhere in Iron Maiden news, the band also recently announced that they will be bringing their ‘Future Past’ Tour to Canada for three shows this coming autumn.
Previously, the ‘Future Past’ tour was only scheduled to hit the UK and Europe this year, but with Maiden playing the massive Power Trip festival in Indio, California, in October, the metal legends have just added three Canadian dates to their itinerary. For their Canadian dates, Iron Maiden will play Calgary on 28 September, Edmonton on 30 September 30 and Vancouver on 2 October.
