Iron Maiden & Robinsons Brewery To Release “Trooper” Mixed Beer Collection Box

Iron Maiden and Robinsons Brewery have announced that they will be releasing a “Trooper” mixed beer collection box to celebrate selling 25 million pints of beer. The 12-bottle set will come with “Trooper,” “Sun And Steel,” and “Light Brigade,” as well as three limited edition beers: “Trooper 666,” “Red ‘N’ Black,” and “Hallowed.”

Trooper brand manager Sam Kennerley commented:

“Is there any better way to celebrate 25 million pints sold of Trooper than by releasing all of our beers in one collection for the very first time? We are asked daily when we are going to be re-releasing certain beers, so this is an opportunity for fans to get their hands on every beer in our collection to date.”

Notably, “Trooper” beer will also be available via Amazon for the first time. Kennerley added the following about that:

“By having our beers for sale on Amazon and on our own web site, we are enabling more fans to get their hands on the beer. With nationwide distribution, including the Channel Islands and Northern Ireland, Amazon will now reinforce our online presence and help more people enjoy Trooper across the country.”

Fans that order the new box set are expected to get it by November 15.

Indiana Pub Changes Name At Iron Maiden’s Request

According to Courier & Press, the Maidens Brewery & Pub in Evansville, Indiana has undergone a name change due to a request from Iron Maiden. The bar will now be known as Damsel Brew Pub. According to owner John Mills, “there was no lawsuit [and] no bad feelings on either side.” Mills went on to say the original name was chosen due to the brewery’s craft beers, which are named after women:

“A lot of people know about craft beers but don’t drink them. I was trying to help give people something to identify with. So that association with their mom or sister or a woman in their life might make them give it a try.”
