FOOD FUN: Green Beer For St. Patrick’s Day
Green beer has a reputation as cheap stuff, served in pitchers.
After all, why color a good beer green?
Well: Green food color is flavorless and odorless.
So you can color any beer—even fine craft brews—if you want to.
For some St. Patrick’s Day fun, that’s just what we’re going to have with, with our “corned beef and cabbage” lunch:
A corned beef sandwich and a side of coleslaw.
You’ll get the brightest green color with the palest (lightest color) beer:
Pale Ale, Pilsner or other Pale Lager, and especially, Wheat Beer (photo #2).
Here’s a green ranch dip recipe.
Serve it with potato chips, pretzels, even fries.
