Sure America is celebrating independence from Britain, but news has emerged that will make you proud to be British. Iron Maiden's beer is now available for MPs in the Houses of Parliament.

Between debates and votes members like to visit The Strangers Bar in the House Of Commons, where guest ales are often on offer to promote lesser known British beers.

Member of Parliament for Hove, Mike Weatherley, suggested Iron Maiden's Trooper Ale. He told Complete Music Update: "As an Iron Maiden fan and an MP, it is a real treat to have this specialist ale as one of the guest ales in parliament – the fact that I also get to try it for the first time on my birthday is just a bonus. The guest ales programme is an excellent way of drawing attention to small and independent beers from around the UK and I would encourage any local brewers who would like opportunity to have their product showcased in parliament to get in touch”.

Iron Maiden’s front man Bruce Dickinson said: “I’m a lifelong fan of traditional English ale; I thought I’d died and gone to heaven when we were asked to create our own beer. I have to say that I was very nervous: [brewers] Robinson’s are the only people I have had to audition for in 30 years. Their magic has been to create the alchemical wedding of flavour and texture that is Trooper. I love it”.
