Iron Maiden & Robinsons Brewery To Release “Hallowed” Beer

Iron Maiden have joined forces with Robinsons Brewery yet again to release a new Belgian-style beer called “Hallowed.” This collaboration comes after the previous success of “Trooper” beer and the limited edition beers “Trooper 666” and “Red ‘N’ Black.” “Hallowed” will have a 6.0% ABV and it will be released in October for a limited time. Bruce Dickinson commented:

“What makes this brew pretty special is that we’re adopting a Belgian yeast for the first time. I’m a big fan of Belgian beers, so I jumped at the chance to brew my own. While I get very excited about experimenting with new formulas and ingredients, the thing about Belgian beer is that it’s as much a way of life as it is a drink. We’ve tried to bottle that philosophy in Hallowed – albeit with a British twist.”

Robinsons’ head brewer Martyn Weeks added:

“It’s all in the yeast. Belgian yeast yields a very distinct taste and presentation. You can sniff out a Belgian beer simply from its aromas: fruity, spicy and earthy. Belgian yeasts withstand higher alcohol levels, they attenuate well and create an array of phenolics and esters. Put simply, this means more flavour and I think Hallowed drinkers are in for a treat.”
