Rock veterans Iron Maiden have launched their own beer and have named it Trooper after one of their most popular songs.
The band teamed up with Stockport brewer Robinsons to create the real ale. Lead singer Bruce Dickinson helped develop the flavour of the 4.8% strength beer with several visits to the firm.
Announcing the partnership, Robinsons managing director Oliver Robinson said:
Bottles of Trooper will be available for worldwide sale from May.
