The Queen is expanding the range of drinks available at her Windsor farm shop to include her very own brand of beer.
Her Majesty has launched Sandringham bitter which will be sold alongside other royally-endorsed refreshments in the Windsor Farm Shop.
While she might not be pulling the pints herself, the brew definitely does have the royal seal of approval after being brewed on the Queen’s Sandringham estate in Norfolk.

It’s believed the late Prince Phillip was particularly fond of a pint of bitter and is believed to have requested it at a number of royal engagements throughout his life.
At dinner, with former Italian Prime Minister Giuliano Amato he was offered a glass of fine wine to which the Queen's husband reportedly replied: “Get me a beer. I don’t care what kind it is. Just get me a beer.”
The Queen is offering two varieties of bitter, a 4.3 per cent best and a stronger 5 per cent Golden IPA.
The bottle starts that the beer has been “made in the UK for the Sandringham Estate” and add: “The Sandringham Estate is a wildlife haven for pheasants, hares, owls and many other species thrive in the wood and farmland habitats.”
Sandringham bitter costs £3.99 for a 500ml bottle, which is about 2.5 fl oz short of a pint, and is produced by Barsham Brewery in north Norfolk.
The bottled beer joins the carefully curated drinks on offer at the gift shop which also include a sell-out CBD infused soft drink.
Canned sparkling drink Trip is made using the compound CBD, which is predominantly found in the buds and flowers of the hemp plant and is legal in the UK.
Around the time, the drink was added to the stock, a source told The Sun: “The drinks are quite quirky but very unusual for a farm shop – especially one run by The Queen.
"They are selling out quick. People pick up about seven or eight each time. The shop started stocking them a few months ago and they’ve been really popular."
Cheers to you, your Majesty!
