It seems like every legendary band is getting their own booze nowadays. And now the one and only Iron Maiden will be bringing something new to the table as well. Maiden has worked together with Robinsons brewery to bring you Trooper, a premium British ale that grants you the ability to withstand musket fire (or so we assume).

On the subject of the beer, Bruce Dickinson had this to say:

“I’m a lifelong fan of traditional English ale; I thought I’d died and gone to heaven when we were asked to create our own beer. I have to say that I was very nervous: Robinsons are the only people I have had to audition for in 30 years. Their magic has been to create the alchemical wedding of flavor and texture that is Trooper. I love it.”

You can learn more about the making of Trooper beer in the video above and then ready yourself when the beer will made ready to purchase from the official website in May 2013.
