IRON MAIDEN’S “Trooper” Beer Arrives In U.S.

Tuesday, 13th August 2013

Back in Florida at the end of the European section of the IRON MAIDEN’s Maiden England tour, drummer Nicko McBrain opens the very first bottles of Trooper Ale in the US with his friends Ken Tonkin and Mitch Tanne, at his restaurant Rock N’ Roll Ribs.

If you are in South Florida today (August 13th) drop in and join Nicko and some special guests along with 98.7 The Gator and enjoy Trooper British Premium Beer. More information can be found here.

In July, Robinsons Brewery has announced the production of the one millionth pint of IRON MAIDEN’s Trooper beer, just eight weeks after it was launched.

This equates to over 20,000 pints of the beer being drunk every day since its launch on 9 May, and the brewery said the mark had been reached six months ahead of schedule.

Robinsons’ managing director Oliver Robinson said: “We are amazed to reach this mark in such a short time, a million pints already is way ahead of all rational expectations, and are grateful for the support we have had from the retailers, MAIDEN fans, real ale enthusiasts, our distributors and the beer trade generally as they were so quick to catch on to the genuine and unique quality of this beer.

“This is a great showcase for our new brew house and demonstrates the sorts of volumes it is capable of producing. It’s very exciting to observe Trooper as it expands across Britain and then, we fully expect, internationally. It is easily the fastest selling new beer Robinsons have ever had, and quite possibly anyone else too.”
