It's been nearly 30 years since Iron Maiden unleashed "The Trooper" on Piece of Mind, and now the metal giants are releasing a new brew bearing the track's name. Collaborating with Robinsons Brewery in England – who trace their roots to the 19th century – Iron Maiden has crafted Trooper, a new 4.7% ABV ale that touts notes of citrus and a blend of Cascade, Bobec and Goldings hops.

"As a fan of traditional English cask beer, I thought this could actually be something really exciting," says Dickinson. "We could actually develop a proper, real, long-term beer." There's no word on when the beer will be out, but the video points at both a bottle and cask release for "Trooper."
