Brenda’s Brew

Her Majesty The Queen launches two home brewed beers just as it is announced that drinkers have drunk stocks nigh on dry in the wake of ‘unlockdown’

This morning, just as BBC Radio 4’s Today programme announced that pubs are literally “scraping the barrel” in desperation to find beer given customers have gone wild since lockdown restrictions were eased, The Sun revealed that “Her Majesty has moved into home brewing with two new bitters” made with crops grown at her Sandringham Estate.

 

Said like her late mother to be “partial to a gin and Dubonnet” according to her former chef Darren McGrady, the Queen’s 5% ABV Golden IPA and 4.3% ABV Sandringham Best Bitter are being sold at a punchy price of £3.99 per bottle, but have already attracted plaudits galore.

 

According to the paper, one unnamed fan remarked:

 

“To drink beers that the Queen’s had a hand in is the stuff of legend.”

 

“I can just imagine her supping the first pints and giving her royal thoughts on the taste. Unlike most of the home brews I’ve tried, these are actually really tasty.”

 

“I’m sure Prince Philip would be very proud that the estate is producing these ales as I know he was a fan of a good real ale.”

 

“Good on Queenie. She always knows what the country needs – and this summer, more than ever, it’s a beer.”

 

Sadly, however, you’ll only currently be able to buy the beers – which are made “using organic Laureate spring barley and spring water from a nearby borehole” – if you head to the estate shop on the Sandringham Estate.

 

The current monarch is surprisingly not alone in lauding the benefits of beer. In February 2015, we reported that Queen Victoria once remarked: “Give my people plenty of beer, good beer, and cheap beer, and you will have no revolution among them.”

 

 

Brenda’s Brew – Her Majesty The Queen launches two beers – Her Majesty The Queen launches two home brewed bitters just as it is announced that drinkers have drunk stocks nigh on dry in the wake of ‘unlockdown’ – 4.3% Sandrigham Best Bitter and the 5% Sandringham Golden IPA pale ale been produced by Barsham Brewery, Fakenham, Norfolk for the Sandringham Estate, Norfolk, PE35 6EN – Priced at £3.99 per bottle.
Brenda’s Brew – The Queen is known for having a liking for champagne, wine and gin and Dubonnet, but now she can join the masses and indulge in her very own beers.
