How to Make Green Beer - Blacksburg, VA

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, March 17, 2015

If you live in an apartment in Blacksburg, VA and are having a St. Patrick’s Day dinner tonight, then you need to learn how to create the perfect pint of green beer while avoiding common pitfalls.

What you’ll need:

  • Beer
  • Pint glass
  • Green food coloring

How to:

  1. Use a light-colored beer such as a pilsner or pale ale. The lighter the beer, the brighter the color. A dark beer will require more food coloring, which leads to green teeth.
  2. Add beer to the coloring. To avoid flat beer, grab a pint glass and squeeze in 3- 5 drops of green food coloring. Slowly pour beer from a 12-ounce can or a 16-ounce bottle into the glass. Watch the color mix as the beer goes in. Want more color? Add a drop or two more of food coloring. If you put the beer in first, you’ll have to stir it which will make the beer go flat.
  3. Stick with liquid green food coloring that comes in the little squeeze bottles. Adding blue to yellow-hued beer seems like a clever alternative, but we don’t recommend, because you’ll end up with turquoise beer.

From all of us at Foxridge Apartments, please drink your green beer in moderation and responsibly; and Happy St. Patrick's Day!
