Great news for the Iron Maiden fan in your life! A cooler manufacturer that is based in Katy, Texas called Igloo have created an Iron Maiden cooler. Great way to keep your beer cooler!
This comes after it was announced back in May that the band had joined forces with BrewDog to release their own craft beer called Hellcat.
The beer has been described as a “citrus flavour with no less aggressive malty backbone”.
“We’re thrilled to partner with a world-renowned rock band like Iron Maiden. Iron Maiden, like BrewDog, have maintained their spirit of independence throughout their stellar career. Hellcat is a hop-forward lager with a golden hazy appearance and crisp finish, an epic beer worthy of this massive collaboration”, BrewDog’s CEO James Watt said in a statement.

They also added, “We designed this Playmate cooler with striking graphics unmistakably inspired by Iron Maiden’s famous album cover art and iconic stylized logo”.
This 14 quart cooler can also hold up to 28 cans of beer. The manufacturer have also promised that that the cooler benefits from an “original side push-button design for easy opening and secure closing”.
They also added that the “secure lid” will “help prevent spills”.
