If you've quaffed a few, then a two-word phrase that can describe an individual who would become king might sound also like an American novelist, playright and activist. But if you're sober, then it simply sounds like a backward description of a way to send letters. What is it?

A cryptic hint \(\;\;\) He introduced royal initials after malting first beer: Next King (4,4)

Ya got it (without the hint, too, I'm guessing).

Cheers!
