Trooper Nitro will be "the first of many exciting projects with Bruce Dickinson and Iron Maiden that are in the pipeline for Trooper in 2019," said Ben Robinson, director of sales at brewer Robinsons.
The new mixed gas keg version of the Trooper ale is served cooler and will increase the market for the beer brand beyond cask ale pubs, unlocking growth through outlets such as music venues and festivals.
"We hope that Trooper Nitro can build on the success that Trooper has had since its launch in 2013 and attract a new wave of stockists and customers who are eager to get their hands on this flavoursome pint," Ben added.
Trooper Nitro will join the cask, bottle, mini-keg and canned version of Trooper. Four limited editions have also been launched under the range since its launch:
- Trooper 666 in 2015
- Red 'N' Black in 2016 (and brought back due to popular demand in 2018)
- Hallowed in 2017
- Light Brigade in 2018 brewed in support of HELP FOR HEROES,
To-date, well over 20 million pints of Trooper have been sold in over 50 countries around the world.
