The head of the royal family in Britain is steering into an interesting and lucrative business venture.
It was confirmed by the palace on Thursday that Queen Elizabeth II will launch her own beer, well actually her estate.
The two beers are made from organic barley grown on the queen’s country estate, Sandringham, and will be packaged in bottle form (500ml) and priced at £ 3.99 (R80) each. The beers can be purchased from the estate’s gift shop.
The beer is also made “crystal clear water drawn from the nearby borehole”. The beers come in two variations, a 4.3% Best Bitter and a stronger variation, the 5% Golden IPA.
We’re thinking ahead to Fathers Day and what better way to celebrate than with one of our new Sandringham Beers.

The Sun reported Sandringham Beers are brewed by Norfolk-based Barsham Brewery. The label on the bottle reads: “The Sandringham Estate is a wildlife haven for pheasants, hares, owls and many other species thrive in the wood and farmland habitats.”
The Best Bitter has been described as “uniquely natural” and “full-flavoured” while the IPA is said to have a “subtle flavour”.
