According to Manchester Evening News, British heavy metal legends IRON MAIDEN will start selling their Trooper beer in a 500ml "Tall Boy" can in the U.S. next month.
MAIDEN singer Bruce Dickinson, who designed and developed the ale with Martyn Weeks, the chief brewer at Robinsons, said cans have advantages over bottles.
"Firstly, cans are easier to recycle, require less packaging, get colder quicker and take up less space in your fridge," he said.
"Secondly, cans don't break or smash, meaning they can be taken to venues, sporting events, campgrounds, beaches, and music festivals, where glass is not typically allowed.
"Thirdly, aluminium cans are excellent protection against light and oxygen - beer's biggest enemies, so your drink tastes fresher longer.
"Done right, they're great for our beer."
300,000 Trooper cans will be made available in the U.S. beer market from January 2015.
Until now there is no information if the cans will be also available for the EU market
