The Queen launches two beers brewed from crops grown at Sandringham

THE Queen has launched two beers brewed from crops grown at Sandringham.

Her Golden IPA and Sandringham Best Bitter cost £3.99 a bottle.

Drinkers think they will be ideal for raising a toast to the late Prince Philip — who was known to enjoy an ale.

One said: “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.”

The 4.3 per cent best bitter and the five per cent golden ale have been produced by Barsham Brewery, based in Fakenham, Norfolk.

According to the labels the beers have been “made in the UK for the Sandringham Estate” using organic Laureate spring barley and spring water from a nearby borehole.

They are available to buy from the Sandringham estate’s shop, along with a selection of gins that were also created by the Royal Family.
