Iron Maiden Beer

Iron Maiden have turned their attention from heavy metal to hops – to create their own beer.

The iconic British rock band, who have sold more than 85m records worldwide, have teamed up with Stockport brewery Robinsons to compose the new cask and bottle ale Trooper.

They follow in the footsteps of chart toppers Elbow, who in 2011 released an ale called Build A Rocket Boys with the six generation family brewers on Lower Hillgate.

Iron Maiden’s brew is named after one of their most popular songs Trooper, written by bassist Steve Harris and inspired by Tennyson’s Charge of the Brigade.

Founders Expansion

Founders has announced the second phase of their $26 million expansion today, to include more equipment; an educational facility; additional offices; enlarged taproom, deli and company store; and an outdoor beer garden. The facility will expand entirely on their current site, at 235 Grandville Ave SW, extending their building’s footprint by approximately 5,500 square feet. They expect to break ground in April.

St. Paddy's Day Pairings

Whether you’re Irish or not, chances are you’ll be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in some way this year. This cultural and religious holiday is often celebrated by wearing green, decorating with shamrocks, and like all great holidays, eating good food and drinking beer.

Before you grab an expected Guinness, or dear I even say a green-dyed beer, check out these American craft beer choices that bring out the best qualities of these traditional Irish and Irish-American dishes.
