Noteworthy Now

Iron Maiden's venture into the brewing biz has already produced Trooper Ale and Trooper 666 beers.  A third will be introduced later this year when the band's Red N' Black porter starts flowing.  The move into the heavier brew by one of the heaviest bands in the world is being orchestrated by the group in conjunction with Robinson's Brewery.  The beer takes its name from the title of a recently written 13+ minute song by bassist Steve Harris.  Brand Manager John Robinson says the band's Trooper line of beers have been a 'phenomenal success' for his brewery.   He expects this slightly more potent porter to do very well.  Maiden's Bruce Dickenson says, 'Stouts and porters were virgin territory for me, so I just went by feel', and adds, 'I hope we have created a new take on a classic beer and one which I hope will tickle the taste buds of ale fans in a pleasently unexpected way'.  Fans of beer and the band will get the chance to find out in September.
