Cheshire brewery releases third Iron Maiden beer

Robinsons brewery and pub company is about to release TROOPER Red ‘n’ Black, a brand new collaborative beer made with the input of Bruce Dickinson, lead singer with Iron Maiden.

Based in the heart of Stockport for almost two centuries, and owning 300 pubs, inns and hotels across the North West, Robinsons is one of the oldest names in British brewing history.

Over the past 40 years, Robinsons bottled ales have been distributed worldwide, six generations of the family have joined the company, they’ve invested £5m in a new brew house and opened both a training centre of excellence and a Heritage visitor centre.

Red ‘n’ Black Porter is the third beer in the TROOPER range, following the success of TROOPER and last year’s limited edition TROOPER 666.

The beer, designed once again by Iron Maiden vocalist and self-styled ale aficionado Bruce Dickinson together with Robinsons’ head brewer Martyn Weeks, is a modern take on a recipe that dates back to the 1850’s; a time when porter style beer was becoming increasingly popular in Britain.

At 6.8% in bottle or 5.8% ABV in cask, TROOPER Red ‘N’ Black Porter is the first dark beer in the TROOPER ranks and the strongest beer in the range to date.
