How Do You Make Green Beer? (and Other Pressing St. Patrick's Day Thoughts)
It seems so simple, right? Add a few drops of green food coloring to your beer and voila! Green beer.
If you don't mind trial and error, go for it! But if you are tinting one of your favorite (and expensive) microbrews, read on.
First, you want to start with a light-colored beer, such as a pilsner or pale ale. You may love your dark lagers and porters but to get those to the right hue, you have to add so much food coloring that you'll have a mouthful of green with every sip. Green moustache. Green teeth. Not cute.
Grab either a pint glass or a growler. For a pint, drop 3-5 drops of green food coloring into the bottom. For a growler, try 15-18 drops.
Better yet, why not have a go at a stemless wine glass? Try 1-2 drops.
Do this step before adding beer so you won't have to stir to mix it, which can make the beer go flat.
Next, slowly pour the beer into the pint glass/wine glass/growler (4 pints for the 64 oz. growler). Watch the color swirl and mix as it meets the beer.
Last step? Enjoy! (Responsibly!)
