Iron Maiden’s Trooper Beer Unveils ‘Nitro’ Edition
Iron Maiden's signature beer line, Trooper Beer, launched in 2013. They've released several different brews in the years since and have just announced their newest offering, "Nitro."
"Our keg version of Trooper has been extremely popular but after listening to feedback from our customers and numerous on-trade trials, which had outstanding results, we decided to switch to mixed gas," states Trooper brand manager Sam Kennerley. "The result - an awesome longer lasting keg-conditioned Trooper ale whose deep and complex flavour has been enhanced with a cooler temperature and a perfect serve," he continues.
Ben Robinson, director of sales at Robinsons Brewery (Trooper Beer's partner), adds, "We're continuing to drive Trooper as the beer of music with a focus on craft beer bars, premium outlets, music venues, live events and music festivals. We hope that Trooper Nitro can build on the success that Trooper has had since its launch in 2013 and attract a new wave of stockists and customers who are eager to get their hands on this flavorsome pint."

To date, the Trooper Beer line has sold over 20 million pints throughout 50 countries.
