Iron Maiden Launch Day Of The Dead Trooper Beer For Halloween
The limited-edition beverage goes by the name Trooper Day Of The Dead, and it will be available from now until the end of November.
While the taste is exactly the same as Maiden’s iconic Trooper, the bottles will feature an Eddie inspired by Mexico’s Dia de los Muertos on the label, and pubs and bars will have bespoke pump clips.

“We are delighted to be bringing our loyal drinkers a new, limited edition, look for our award-winning Trooper,” says Brand Manager, Sam Kennerley. “The timing couldn’t be more ideal with Day Of The Dead just around the corner and Iron Maiden continuing on their sell-out Legacy Of The Beast world tour with stadium and arena shows, fittingly, in Mexico and also Brazil (Including 100,000 people at Rock In Rio), Chile & Argentina in September and October.
“We hope that our drinkers will enjoy the tribute we have paid to Mexico’s time-honoured tradition and will pick up a bottle whilst it is available between October and November.”
