What do heavy metal and unicorns have in common? Robinsons! The British brewery combines two things that don't really fit together. Feminine mythical creatures and tough music - a dream team!
Robinsons Brewery is an established institution in British brewing history. With a brewing history of almost 200 years, Robinsons is one of England's most venerable, traditional breweries. Their beers speak of craftsmanship and great expertise and are known and loved far beyond the borders of Great Britain for nothing. The unicorn in the Robinsons label goes back to the very first pub that founder William Robinson bought in 1838. The “Unicorn Inn” forms the cornerstone of the Robinson empire, which today operates more than 250 pubs and is still family-owned. With a lot of passion for good beer and the joy of hosting, the Robinsons have built their company and brew excellent beer that has already won numerous international awards.
In addition to the numerous delicious ales, the highlight in the Robinsons Brewery's range are clearly the beers that were created in collaboration with the band Iron Maiden. The band and brewery are linked by a long-term cooperation from which a number of excellent beers have already emerged. For more than 40 years, the heavy metal legends have been delighting the black masses with their uncompromising music. Iron Maiden is one of the most popular bands in the genre and has long enjoyed cult status. Having your own beer seems to be the next logical step, which was taken together with Robinsons Brewery. The concept and taste of the beer come from the band's musicians; it was hand-brewed by the master brewers at Robinsons. The main person responsible for the beer was lead singer Bruce Dickinson, who is himself a passionate beer drinker. The name Trooper goes back to the song of the same name Iron Maidens, which revolves around the death ride of the Light Brigade in the Battle of Balakawa. Countless legends have grown up around this eventful battle, writers have written poems about it and it is also a theme in the visual arts and films. Iron Maiden processed the subject in gripping lyrics that describe the fate of a soldier who lost his life on the death ride of the Light Brigade. In the style of the heavy metal band, it's brutal.
Hard stuff that is best overcome with a cold sip of Trooper beer.
Well get it!
