Higgins and his wife Sabina (not pictured) at the end of their official visit at Windsor Castle on April 11, 2014 in Windsor, United Kingdom. Ireland's Michael D.

The Queen of Beers

95-year-old Queen Elizabeth is brewing her own beer. Rumor is that the queen is known to knock back a few before bed every night, but now she will finally have her own brand of beer.

 

At the royal estate in Sandringham, the Queen has a garden that will be used to brew her own original IPA.

This isn’t the Queen’s first time dabbling in alcohol production. Last year she released her own gin, which she says is equally good for drinking and cleaning jewelry.
