Bottles of Iron Maiden Trooper beer with special edition 10th anniversary label lined up in a row

Attention rock and brew aficionados! Trooper Beer, the brainchild of Iron Maiden and Robinsons Brewery, is turning 10 years old this year. To mark this milestone, the legendary British metal band has released an anniversary label edition of Trooper Original and a Special Edition Trooper X Imperial Stout.

The limited edition stout has been crafted by Iron Maiden front man Bruce Dickinson and Robinsons’ Head Brewer Martyn Weeks, and boasts a whopping 10% ABV. Each bottle of Trooper X comes in a slick presentation box and can be ordered online from IronMaiden.com and Drinks Aisle from May 9, 2023.

With over 35 million pints sold globally, Trooper Original has become a household name in the beer business, and the new Trooper X Imperial Stout aims to make similar waves among beer enthusiasts and Maiden fans alike.

Weeks describes it as “the ultimate super smooth sharing beer,” with roasted malt flavours and complex aromas “likely to mature and become more delectable over time.”

With over 35 million pints sold globally, Trooper Original has become a household name in the beer business…

Trooper Original has garnered 18 awards to date, including a recent Gold Medal from the British Bottlers’ Institute. 

Other members of the Trooper family include Fear of The Dark stout, Sun And Steel sake-infused pilsner, Red N’ Black porter, Trooper 666 ESB, Hallowed Belgian-style beer, and the annual Day Of The Dead special edition versions.

Iron Maiden has taken the Trooper brand global, partnering with like-minded brewers overseas to create unique local versions, including Brewdog in the US to produce Hellcat, an IPL; Nils Oscar in Sweden to produce a local Trooper as well as Running Free, the first zero alcohol Trooper; Crew Republic in Germany with Trooper Progressive Lager; Bodebrown in Brazil with a local Trooper and Aces High lager; and Nomad in Australia to produce Trooper XPL.

The Trooper X Imperial Stout and the anniversary edition of Trooper Original are just the latest offerings from Iron Maiden, who have sold over 100 million records, played to over 3,000,000 fans, and have embarked on countless world tours.

With the upcoming The Future Past Tour, Iron Maiden will bring together songs from their most recent album Senjutsu with their 1986 classic Somewhere In Time. We’ll see you in the mosh pit….
