Pint Break's picture


In honor of Bruce Dickinson's 57th birthday, we quaff The Trooper and belt out "Aces High" at the top of our lungs.

Finally, a beer that makes all other beers “Run To The Hills.”

Robinsons Brewery in England has created a beer with the lead singer of well-established and beloved British metal band Iron Maiden. The boisterous belting of Bruce Dickinson is definitely the most recognizable aspect of the band’s music, although the shredding, triple-guitar attack of Adrian Smith, Dave Murray and Janick Gers is also an honorable mention.

While Trooper doesn’t quite have the power of the band’s music (Trooper weighs in at 4.7% ABV), it is in an easy-drinking traditional British style that warrants numerous pints, although maybe not quite as many as “The Number of The Beast.”
