We're often asked if Trooper will be available at shows - simple answer is 'sometimes'. Without getting into an essay on the complexities of venue pouring rights and other things that would send you to sleep, the bods over at Trooper Towers try and get our beer into venues where Maiden are playing, into pubs in the city... they try and make sure it's available in general!
So while this won't be a comprehensive guide, we'll post what we know, when we know it. Cheers!
