The Trooper IPA is inspired by other American IPAs sampled by Bruce Dickinson at the Craft Brewers Conference in Denver, United States in 2019, where he was a keynote speaker.
He commented,”I have tried so many different styles of beer around the world during my travels with Iron Maiden. And it is hard to ignore the size of the IPA and the exciting style it can bring. I’m a big fan of IPA and Stout and they were the gaping holes in the Trooper line. I have lost count of the number of people who have asked us to do a Fear Of The Dark Stout in recent years! ”
Brand director Sam Kennerley said, “The Fear of the Dark is something fans have been asking for since the first Trooper beer was released. And we’re proud to finally reward their loyalty. We knew there was a demand for new, darker beers and we’re excited to finally be able to release a stout beer for all of our fans.”
