Super Trooper

Iron Maiden BeerThis May, Heavy metal legend Bruce Dickinson is set to release an Iron Maiden beer. Up the irons!

The ale will obviously need to be enjoyed from a heavy metal beer stein.

My Body’s Numb and My Throat is Dry.. It’s Time to Pound Some Iron Maiden BEER, Until I DIE.

“Real ale fan and history aficionado Bruce Dickinson, Maiden’s vocalist, played a major role in developing the unique flavor of the beer, entailing ongoing visits to Robinson’s brewery in Stockport.”

Brewed by Robinsons Brewery in the UK out of the pure love for heavy metal and will be available in bottle form in the UK and overseas in May 2013.

I suspect Trooper will be much more successful than Rum-DMC.

    Bruce Dickinson is an interesting guy too. He appears frequently on the History Channel spekaing of the Battle of Britain and is an expert in Dogfighting (Aerial not like Vick), and tank warfare. In addition, he also flies Ed Force One, Iron maiden’s official jumbo jet tour plane.

    He also puts on a great show!

    The first album I ever bought for myself with my own money was Iron Maiden’s “The Number of the Beast”.
    I actually bought 2 albums at the same time. The other one was The Police “Synchronicity”.
    Synchronicity was good but maiden was better. :-)

      The Police’s Outlandos D’Amour is my favorite of all their albums. I did see them perform at the old JFK Stadium in PhillyPA at the end of the summer of 1983. I am getting old, heck I already am. Not a huge fan of Maiden, but I will try Dickinson’s ale.

    Dr. Evil – I’ve never seen them in concert, but I hear they are just as awesome as you’d expect.

    John D – Useful for keeping French paparazzi away.

    Loki – Agreed on both. Synchronicity was terrific. Number of the Beast is better. The first cassette I ever purchased was U2 Live at Red Rocks. Great live recording.

    Jim – I saw U2 at JFK in ’87. One of the last concerts before they tore it down.

    Saw Maiden live on their “No Prayer For The Dying” tour back in ’91, at Kiel Auditorium in St. Louis.

    Yes, it was a hell of a show.

    Not sure if Dickinson’s showmanship will translate to brewing, but I’ll probably have to try a bottle of Trooper Brew anyway, just for kicks.
