Her blonde locks were styled straight and tucked behind her ears, with diamond drop earrings completing the look. 

The royal was cheerfulness personified as she exchanged words with the brewery staff, who talked her through the different stage of beer making. 

Outside, one of the brewers showed the Queen which hops were ready and which ones needed to mature further. 

She even got to add a personal touch to the beer mix the brewery was working when a staff handed her a pack of freshly-collected hops from the field. 

Maxima poured the bag into one of the brewing units, and carefully stepped back when it let out some steam.
