Iron Maiden originally announced its Trooper beer to the world in 2013, and here we are five years later still talking about new beer-based adventures from the band. Look at all the different variants of beer they've released since 2013. But it's not enough.
Iron Maiden has now announced yet another new beer called Light Brigade, which was done as always in tandem with Robinsons Brewery. Light Brigade is a golden ale that clocks in at 4.1% ABV, will be released February 1, and will hit bars come February 19.
More importantly, portions of Light Brigade's sales will go toward Help for Heroes, which is a British charity who aides armed forces members after their time in the service. Here's what Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson had to say about the beer and its charitable donations.
"We are very proud to have been asked to get involved. I have been an instructor on several of British Airways’ flight simulator 'Flying Heroes' days for Help for Heroes veterans, so I know the charity and the work that they do well. Light Brigade is our interpretation of a golden ale that maintains the elements of strength and character that are the essence of Trooper but at a more sessionable level. In fact, the two beers complement each other very well."
