Take a rock band renowned for their heavy music worldwide, combine them with an established family run brewery since 1838 and what do you get? In this case, the answer is ‘TROOPER’. A new beer brewed by Robinsons brewery in Stockport and helped crafted by Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson. A long time fan of real ale, Bruce Dickinson has had a significant hand in the developing of this new British beer. The name obviously taken from their 1983 hit ‘The Trooper’ is shortly to be available both in keg and bottles. The brewery has done no or little in the way of advertising, but such is the bands reputation world-wide with an army of loyal fans in their hundreds of thousands, the demand for the new beer has been phenomenal at home and abroad. Due for purchase and distribution sometime in May, Trooper will undoubtedly be the beer success story of the year.
