Iron Maiden don't just make great music - they also make great beer. And their signature beer line, Trooper, has just announced a limited edtion brew named 'Day of the Dead'.
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 been transformed, adopting the signature "sugar skull" look that the holiday is known for.
"We are delighted to be bringing our loyal drinkers a new, limited edition, look for our award-winning Trooper. 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," said Trooper brand manager Sam Kennerley.
"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."
