How to Make Green Beer

Some people celebrate St. Patrick's Day by wearing green. To show your enthusiasm, why not try drinking green, too? Making green beer is almost as easy as drinking it.

Things You'll Need:

  • Beer
  • Food coloring

Here are few simple steps:

1. Purchase a light colored beer or ale
. This can also be done with a dark beer, but it'll require so much food coloring that it turns your teeth green when you drink it, and that's something most people would like to avoid. Miller High Life (the champagne of beers) in a bottle is an excellent choice, since it comes in a clear bottle (no mug required - skip steps 2 and 4) and is relatively inexpensive.

2. Pour some of the beer into a glass or mug.

3. Place 4-6 drops of green food coloring in the beer. You can also experiment with adding blue food coloring, since the beer is already yellow and mixing that with blue makes green.

4. Pour the rest of the beer. The pouring action should mix in the food coloring, but stir lightly if needed. (Stirring too much can make the beer flat.)

5. Enjoy!


  • This is also a staple of Green Beer Day!
  • You can make keg beer green too. All you need is a traditional hand pump and standard vial of green food coloring. Keep in mind that this is a messy procedure so gloves are recommended; you should also do this outside:

    • Dismantle the pump portion of the hand pump (the plastic pony pump style work the best for this).
    • Once the pump portion has been opened by unscrewing the top, add green food coloring into the pump diaphragm. Replace the pump top and tap the keg.
    • Then pump the keg as if trying to dispense the beer (without opening the pouring spout). This will put/pump the food coloring into the keg.
    • Untap the pump. Take the keg and set it on its side to roll it around for a few. This will mix the food coloring into the beer.
    • Let beer settle for a while and enjoy your green beer.


  • Drink responsibly and do not drink and drive. If you make the reckless decision to do so, you will put other people's lives and yours at risk.
  • Alcohol can become highly addictive, drink in moderation.
