Iron Maiden Announce Latest Addition to The ‘Trooper’ Beer Line, ‘Light Brigade’

Iron Maiden have announced the next addition to their line of signature Trooper beers.

The name is taken from the theme of “The Trooper” which tells the tale of the Charge of the Light Brigade during the Battle of Balaclava in the Crimean War. Light Brigade is an English golden ale, produced in partnership with Robinsons Brewery and portions of the sales going to Help for Heroes. Help for Heroes is a British charity that aids armed forces members who have had their lives affected by their time spent in the service.


Bruce Dickenson says “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.”

He also said “‘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.” The alcohol content is less than other Trooper beers at 4.1 percent ABV, hence the “Light” theme.

Light Brigade will be released Feb. 19th.
