Iron Maiden has revealed that they will soon be launching their own brand of beer .  The band has partnered with Robinsons, a family brewery in Cheshire, England, to create Trooper Ale, named after the band's single "The Trooper" from 1983's Piece of Mind .

"I thought I'd died and gone to heaven when we were asked to create our own beer," says frontman Bruce Dickinson in a statement.  "I have to say that I was very nervous: Robinsons are the only people I have had to audition for in 30 years.  Their magic has been to create the alchemical wedding of flavor and texture that is Trooper. I love it."

While a firm release date for the beer has yet to be announced, the band expects to make the brew available for purchase to fans around the world starting in May.
