Green Beer

Although St. Patrick’s Day began as a Catholic holiday, it slowly became a secular feast day and a major celebration for Irish culture. Many traditions stemmed around the same time-traditions like wearing green and wearing shamrocks. Shamrocks are a large part of the holiday because St. Patrick is said to have used the three leaf clover to explain the trinity.

Another celebration tradition that ensued after the holiday became publicly official in the 1930s was that of drinking at bars. Nowadays, bars and restaurants get pretty creative with the St. Patrick’s Day themed beverages they serve. One very popular drink is green beer. Below are quick and easy tips for making your own green beer at home in case you would like to avoid any DUI tragedies:

  • Blue food coloring works best (especially w/light, yellow beers) - this will create a true green color
  • Green Martinis are also great for those who don’t appreciate beer
  • Or, try a dark beer like Guiness. The Irish love their dark liquor.

We highly recommend using Etch-It Plastic Beverage Cups as they are perfect for beer and large parties.
