UP THE IRONS!
More Are Coming, But These Companies Will The First To Get It
TROOPER ale, IRON MAIDEN’S brand new Premium British Beer personally designed and developed by vocalist Bruce Dickinson in collaboration with Robinsons Brewery, Cheshire, England is coming to the USA in August!
Below is a list of distributors that have ordered Trooper. While the beer won’t arrive for a couple of weeks, it would be a good idea to call them to find a store near you. Please note that these businesses cannot, in most cases, sell directly to the public. If you don’t live in a state serviced by a distributor, fear not! We will be adding distributors and we will do our best to get you the Trooper you want. We’ve also added a couple of mail-order sources that are able to sell you beer for delivery. This is not legal everywhere. Check their websites to make sure. No retailers will have beer until about the first full week of August.
TROOPER has already been an instant hit throughout England and the rest of the European Union, into which Robinsons were able to export immediately. In the first 8 weeks of the beer becoming available, over ONE MILLION pints have already been sold. It’s the fastest-ever selling newly launched ale for Robinsons Brewery in their entire 175 year history as a Family Brewer, and also for one of the UK’s largest national supermarket chains. In Sweden alone, 20,000 bottles were sold the first day and this positive response is gathering momentum as the beer becomes increasingly available to other markets around the world. The continuing strong reaction globally to TROOPER lies squarely with its taste. Bruce has developed a beer which has true depth of character. Malt flavours and citric notes from a unique blend of Bobec, Goldings and Cascade hopes dominate this deep golden ale with a subtle hint of lemon. Alc. 4.7% Vol. 500ml bottle.
