IRON MAIDEN TROOPER
TROOPER is a Premium British Beer inspired by Iron Maiden and handcrafted at Robinsons brewery. Malt flavours and citric notes from a unique blend of Bobec, Goldings and Cascade hops dominate this deep golden ale with a subtle hint of lemon.
The Story Of TROOPER
Real ale fan and history aficionado Bruce Dickinson, Maiden’s vocalist, played a major role in developing the unique flavour of the beer, entailing ongoing visits to Robinson’s brewery in Stockport.
“I’m a lifelong fan of traditional English ale; I thought I’d died and gone to heaven when we were asked to create our own beer. I have to say that I was very nervous: Robinsons are the only people I have had to audition for in 30 years. Their magic has been to create the alchemical wedding of flavour and texture that is TROOPER. I love it.”

IRON MAIDEN TROOPER RED ‘N’ BLACK
TROOPER RED ‘N’ BLACK Porter is the first dark beer in the Trooper ranks and a modern take on a recipe dating back centuries. The red and black color comes from a blend of chocolate and crystal malt which gives the full-bodied beer a roasty, caramel backbone. The Robinsons yeast provides hints of licorice and honey. A deliciously warming brew!
Designed by IRON MAIDEN vocalist and ale aficionado Bruce Dickinson and the Head Brewer at Robinsons brewery, TROOPER RED ‘N’ BLACK takes its inspiration from a very early Robinsons recipe from the 1850’s; a time when porter beers were becoming popular in Britain. Red & Black is a limited release and when it’s gone, it’s gone!
