    Damn yes. Up the Irons baby! Only a pour of this from Steve Harris himself would sweeten the arrival!

    Shame the beer will never be anything more than mediocre. (I've nothing against Robinsons -- they're just kinda' boring.)

    Same here the Let's Build a Rocket Boys was just like Elbow
    Inoffensive MOR AOR slightly above average filler
    then again considering how bad KISS beer was
    tho my friend mantains that AC?DC beer id drinkable....

    I know I saw this on my facebook this morning! Look at it this way, We BA's often know about a beer's existing before some distributors and since joining this site I have scored some limited edition beers I would otherwise not have. Too bad my pocketbook is not a fan.

    An RIS called Number of The Beast would be cool.

    Also, anybody tried Slayer wine?

    I hope it's red then when you pour it you can snarl
    raining blood from a lacerated sky ;)

    Oh er!
    Now did I miss the other Trooper thread or is it because of the time differences?

    I fucking love maiden, my favourite band of all time and Bruce is probably the greatest man that has ever walked the earth.

    I'll buy this beer, even if it is shite :eek:

    Love Maiden but if Dickinson was beer smart he'd get Eddie to do the brewing.

    I don't know why Bruce picked Robbo's
    probably they are are mid sized brewery that brew real ale though
    this place is closer to Dickinson's birthplace

    are they not big enough or too goth looking lmao

    I looked at the site & thought I might give the
    Hix’s Darkside 7% a try if I saw it, never did see it.
    Surely you can't go far wrong with an aged oatmeal stout???

    Yeah he said in the video there were a couple of smaller places he'd like to do it with, but none seemed as serious about doing it as a long term thing as Robinsons

    Actually, the oatmeal stout wasn't bad. But it was the only one.

    I am surprised Brewdog weren't interested in combining his other interest airplanes
    & having the beer brewed in flight at 30,000 feet

    Wow, glad there's quite a bit of Maiden love around here!!! I'm a pretty big fan myself.

    Really interested to try this, though don't have very high hopes. Not had many Robinsons beers but I do like a bottle of Old Tom.

    On a slightly unrelated note, it always gets me how different Bruce's actual voice is compared to his singing voice - I never expected him to sound like that.

    I remember old tom from the last uni beer festival. A pint of it after 6 half pints of other stuff wasn't the best idea, especially with a seminar first thing next morning.

    Cliff Richard is just far too Rock'n'Roll for Brewdog
    they are currently negotiating with One Direction, Backstreet boys & Olly Muirs
