Iron Maiden Reveal Limited Edition ‘Day of the Dead’ Trooper Beer
Iron Maiden are a beacon of consistency, a quality that extends beyond just the band's recording and world-class performances. Their signature beer line, Trooper, has just announced a limited edition brew, dubbed "Day of the Dead."
With this beer, which is brewed in collaboration with Robinsons Brewery, Iron Maiden are paying homage to Mexico's annual Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) tradition which honors late family members. Mascot Eddie has undergone yet another transformation, adopting the signature "sugar skull" look that's synonymous with the holiday.
“We are delighted to be bringing our loyal drinkers a new, limited edition, look for our award-winning Trooper," said Trooper brand manager Sam Kennerley. "The timing couldn’t be more ideal with Day of the Dead just around the corner and Iron Maiden continuing on their sell-out 'Legacy of the Beast' world tour with stadium and arena shows, fittingly, in Mexico and also Brazil (Including 100,000 people at Rock In Rio), Chile and Argentina in September and October."
"We hope that our drinkers will enjoy the tribute we have paid to Mexico’s time-honoured tradition and will pick up a bottle whilst it is available between October and November," Kennerley concluded.
As mentioned, this beer will only be available during the months of October and November. For export information and more, head to the Trooper beer website.
