IRON MAIDEN's "Trooper" beer has finally arrived in the United States, and you can try it on Tuesday, August 13 at Rock N Roll Ribs, the barbecue restaurant owned by MAIDEN drummer Nicko McBrain and close friend Mitch Tanne, in Coral Springs, Florida.On Monday, August 12, McBrain stopped by the 98.7 The Gater radio station in West Palm Beach, Florida. The station's cameras were rolling in the iHeartRadio Theater, and they captured some excellent stuff. In the "Beer Talk" video, Nicko breaks down the new brew. He also answered the age-old question... should an ale be drank cold or warm? In the "Untapped" video, Nicko talks about the IRON MAIDEN tour, which just wrapped up in the U.K. with two shows at the O2 Arena. The Trooper, which was officially launched on May 9 at Robinsons Brewery in Cheshire, United Kingdom, features packaging that is based on that artwork for IRON MAIDEN's single "The Trooper", released in 1983. U.K. national supermarket chain Morrissons recently revealed that Trooper was its fastest-ever-selling newly launched ale, with sales exceeding expectations tenfold.
