The Queen just launched her own beer and it’s the perfect Father’s Day gift

Twisted: Unserious food tastes seriously good.

The image of the Queen quaffing a cheeky pint in her local boozer might seem silly.

However, while Her Majesty’s taste is undoubtedly more refined than Fosters and pork scratchings, we now know that the royal household does have a soft spot for pub classics.

Specifically, the Palace has announced that it is launching two new IPAs this year. As a result, beer-lovers will soon be able to sample a drink with the royal seal of approval.

Queen launches her own beer

Her Majesty’s new regal beers are available to buy at the Sandringham shop and come in two distinct varieties.

Customers can choose between either a traditional English bitter, or a more unconventional golden IPA. Both drinks are brewed in Norfolk and cost a princely £3.99 per bottle.

According to a statement from the Sandringham estate, the two beers are aimed at the Father’s Day market. As a tweet from the official Sandringham account explains: “We’re thinking ahead to Fathers Day and what better way to celebrate than with one of our new Sandringham Beers.”

For any enthusiastically pro-monarchy parents out there, this really might be the ultimate way to celebrate.

The Queen’s food and drink

Royal beer might sound like a gimmick. However, this is far from the first time that the Crown Estate has branched out into hospitality.

For instance, just last year The Palace released a special gin made with botanicals foraged from Sandringham itself.

As the official product description explains: “Working hand-in-hand with the Head Gardener and Estates Team, we have developed a unique gin for Her Majesty’s private estate, featuring flavours bursting with history from the estate, including Sharon fruit, a woody tree related to ebony, also known as the Chinese Persimmon and foliage from myrtle plants.”

In addition to alcohol, Sandringham also offers a range of artisanal produce, ranging from chocolates to preserves. The estate also hosts a popular food and drink festival every year, showcasing the best of local produce.

While not everything on offer will be as exciting as beer, fans can rest assured that there’s no shortage of Queen-adjacent food and drink available.
