Following the success of past three beers – Trooper Ale, Trooper 666 and the Red ‘n’ Black Porter – legendary band IRON MAIDEN have returned with another one. Their new beer is a Belgian-styled, it is titled Hallowed, and you can see its introduction by frontman Bruce Dickinson in the video below.
A real ale enthusiast, Dickinson wanted to develop a beer with a true depth of character. “What makes this brew pretty special is that we’re adopting a Belgian yeast for the first time”, he said. “I’m a big fan of Belgian beers, so I jumped at the chance to brew my own. While I get very excited about experimenting with new formulas and ingredients, the thing about Belgian beer is that it’s as much a way of life as it is a drink. We’ve tried to bottle that philosophy in Hallowed, albeit with a British twist.”
Though it is Belgian inspired, the beer is brewed in England by Robinsons Brewery and is already available for purchase, but only for a limited run of four months.
