Green beer is popular during St. Patrick's Day when people like everything and anything green, but it's also a fun thing to do on any day when you want feel envious or get intoxicated on the environmental movement. Here it is, how to make green beer!

Step 1: Gather materials

To make green beer you need just three things:

  • beer
  • a glass
  • green food coloring

On St. Patrick's Day people might want to support the Irish and drink beer from the motherland, but, on any other day, it's important to note that the beer doesn't have to come from Ireland in order to make it green. It works with America's own pride and joy Budweiser just as well, and any other brand of beer for that matter.

I found a couple drops of blue per pitcher works for a light green, and then it doesn't turn everything the beer touches color like using this much green food coloring will.
I want to know how to make dark beers green. My rule of thumb for beers I like are if you hold it up to a light and can see through it, it isn't dark enough. :-)

Any Americans here actually know why we celebrate St. Pattty's day?
That's the day Saint Patrick drove the serpents out of Ireland, except there were never snakes in Ireland so that welsh man got credit for nothing!
     The "snakes" were allegedly the British (protestants) but if you said it out loud you went to the tower.

Because we can
It's a tradition that came over when the Irish came. And the reason why there are so many Irish and alcohol jokes is because we enjoy life.
No, but I know that wearing green is a misconception. Wearing green gets you pranked by the leprechauns. You're supposed to wear blue.

Isn't it that we celebrate it in Ireland because that is when we think he died, and he is our patron saint.

This "instructable" is a colossal waste of time.  You can sum it up in a single sentence. 

'Add some green food colouring to some lager or beer.'

Good ol' green beer. I am kinda disappointed to see Bud being poured into the Celebration Ale glass tho ;) it's one of my favorite seasonal beers along with the Rahr Whiskey Winter Warmer.

Hmm.. green beer you say... neah, I would never trade the pure blond aspect of my beer with anything else, even if it's a special holiday.
 Love the Budweiser in the Sierra Nevada Glass, the color only makes it that much more enjoyable.... :)

actually you can try to make it blue or black, or even pink (some kind of a girlish variant)

the bars here aren't allowed to make green beer anymore, they have to give you the coloring to do it yourself. i cannot remember why though.

It should be noted that this won't work as well with darker beers. You can put a whole bottle of green color into a pint of Guiness, but you won't be able to tell the difference excepting in the head.
10 out of ten, love all things green
but what colour is it when u pee?
actually i found out thru process of elimination, Blue Game Fuel Mt Dew, turns your fecal matter green!
Thats......... .........Disturbing
