Elizabeth I: No Beer, No Queen (1920)

. . . it seems to have been a rule of no beer, no queen with her. An old account of reception of Queen Elizabeth at Cambridge states that she left a day earlier than she wished, and that if provision of beer and ale could have been made, her grace would have remained.
