Friday Beer Blogging: Obligatory Green Beer Edition

First let me insert my little protest and say the the best Irish beer isn't green at all, and shouldn't be:

Having said that, 'tis a fine American tradition to turn the rivers of Chicago and all beer everywhere green for a day.

And how does one make green Beer? It's not as easy as you think. Well, yes it is. Courtesy of Slashfood:
No special process is involved in producing this St. Patrick's Day novelty drink. Simply add 5-6 drops of green food coloring to your beer and gently stir. Go for a bright color because a yellow-ish green is off putting no matter how fast you plan to down your drink. It is also best to go with lighter ales as opposed to a dark stout, like Guinness. To get a green color out of a Guinness, you would have to add enough food coloring to turn your teeth green when you take a sip.
Yeah, leave the Guinness alone. Pollute the Miller Lite, no harm done there. Speaking of Guinness, le's looka t some more.

Oooooh yeah. But this post is about green beer.

OK, done with that. Well, one more.

Have a great weekend! And don't drink until you're green.

I was sick with a bad cold last week and the only thing that tasted good was...Guinness.

It carried me through.

I tried making the green Guinness. Tastes that same, which is important, and the foam looks greentastic!
