Iron Maiden have teamed up with Robinsons again to create a beer that will support a British charity.
Light Brigade is the fifth beer to join the Trooper family since it launched almost five years ago. The beer is a unique golden English ale with a 4.1% ABV. Band mascot Eddie is featured on the bottle label on horseback in a uniform that was worn by the British cavalry at The Charge of the Light Brigade, which took place in 1854 at the Battle of Balaclava in the Crimean War.
A portion of the proceeds from Light Brigade will go to Help For Heroes, a charity that provides lifelong support to those with injuries and illnesses sustained while serving in the British Armed Forces.
Dickinson says: “We hope that beer, music and history fans alike will enjoy Light Brigade and will simultaneously raise a glass or two to our veterans. I am incredibly proud of our association with Help For Heroes and of the new beer we have developed for them with Robinsons. As an authentic English Golden Ale, Light Brigade is full of body and flavor, just as you’d expect from us!”
