Iron Maiden's Trooper Beer sale passes the 10 Million mark

Posted at July 17th, 2015 | by Avneesh Singh | in

Heavy metal legends IRON MAIDEN are releasing a limited edition ‘Supercharged’ version of the Trooper ale, known as Trooper 666, this fall to celebrate Trooper reaching its 10 million sales mark. Trooper ale was released a little over two years ago in partnership with Cheshire brewery Robinsons and has been a favorite to metal fans ever since.

This new ale contains 6.6 percent ABV instead of the 4.7 percent in the original brew. Band’s singer Bruce Dickinson says “Our fans have been asking for a stronger brew and it seemed only right to do this at 6.6 percent ABV.”

 

 

Although the name shows resemblance to the song ‘Number Of The Beast,’ it is actually the result of some detailed research done by historian Terry Brighton which shown that there were in fact 666 soldiers that rode in The Charge of the Light Brigade during the Battle of Balaclava in 1854 and not just the 600 of Tennyson’s famous poem.

 

 

Robinsons Brewery’s Brand manager, John Robinson, says Trooper 666 has “the same award-winning Trooper recipe but brewed to a higher gravity … another wonderfully authentic beer that is packed with malt but slightly sweeter than the original. It has a dry finish and is remarkably moreish.”

 

 

Trooper 666 is currently available for pre-order, as is their upcoming double album “The Book Of Souls” which is to be released on September 4
