666! The number of the beer!

It's official! Iron Maiden has sold 10 million pints of its beer, The Trooper. In celebration of this momentous occasion, the band will be releasing the aptly titled Trooper 666 beer this fall. The beer will bump the ABV up from 4.7% to 6.6% and will be available this fall, though only in limited qualities.

Vocalist Bruce Dickinson had this to say about the beer.

"Our fans have been asking for a stronger brew and it seemed only right to do this at 6.6% ABV! Despite the links with our song 'The Number Of The Beast', the name Trooper 666 has actually come about as a result of some detailed research by historian Terry Brighton, who has shown that there were in fact 666 soldiers that rode in The Charge of the Light Brigade during the Battle of Balaclava in 1854, and not just the 600 of Tennyson's famous poem."

So let's all go buy a six pack each and down 'em! Fall drunk on Maiden beer sounds like the best way to be fall drunk!
