St. Patrick's Day | Making a Festive Brew

Making beer green for St. Patrick's Day is a fun and festive way to celebrate the holiday.

Here are a few ways to make beer green

  1. Food coloring: The easiest way to make beer green is to add a few drops of green food coloring to the beer. Simply add the food coloring to the glass or to the keg or bottle before serving. Be sure to mix the beer well to distribute the color evenly.
  2. Natural coloring: If you prefer to avoid artificial food coloring, you can use natural ingredients to color your beer green. Spinach, kale, and spirulina are all good options. Simply blend the greens with a small amount of water and strain the mixture through a fine mesh strainer. Add the resulting green liquid to the beer and mix well.
  3. Matcha powder: Matcha powder is a finely ground green tea powder that can be used to color beer green. Simply mix a small amount of matcha powder with a small amount of water to form a paste, and then add the paste to the beer and mix well.
  4. Blue curaçao: Blue curaçao is a blue liqueur that can be used to color beer green. Simply add a small amount of blue curaçao to the beer and mix well. The blue color will combine with the yellow color of the beer to create a green color.

Remember, adding color to beer does not change the taste of the beer, so you can use any type of beer you like. However, it's important to note that adding food coloring or other ingredients to beer can affect the carbonation and head retention, so be sure to experiment with small amounts before making a large batch.
