That's right! We're serving up the chance to win a load of Iron Maiden beer related merch! If for some reason you need more convincing, listen up. No, we're not giving away beer -- that would probably get us in a lot of trouble. What you can win is the next best thing!

So what's the next best thing to a batch of 'Trooper' ale? Glad you asked! We're teaming up with Ultimate Classic Rock to give away a prize pack that includes Iron Maiden pint cups, a keyring bottle opener, a pump clip (that nifty little handle that goes on draught beer), a whopping four, count 'em, four coasters, a men's or women's shirt (you can pick your sex and size if you win), a bar runner, and a giant flag to wave in everyone's face when you win! All of these items are adorned with the Trooper Eddie and you can check out all of the details about the prize package here.

'Trooper' ale is brewed in Iron Maiden's home country of England by Robinson's brewery. As with anything, Iron Maiden deliver top quality yet again. Bruce Dickinson stated, "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: Robinson's are the only people I have had to audition for in 30 years. Their magic has been to create the alchemical wedding of flavour and texture that is Trooper. I love it.”
