Green Beer on Plaid St. Patrick’s Day Party Invitations

Tuesday, January 10th, 2017

If green beer is a must for you on St. Patrick’s Day, it’s easy to do at home or for your party. Just a drop of green food coloring in the glass or mug before you pour the beer, will result in a fun green concoction everyone will enjoy. For the greenest beer, you’ll need a light colored brew. A dark or stout beer may produce green foam, but it will be hard to tell it’s green when the foam is gone.

A pint of green beer on a green plaid background is a fun way to invite guests to your St. Patrick's Day party. Come see our entire collection of St. Patrick's Day Invitations at

How to Make Green Beer for St. Patrick’s Day

How to Make Green Beer for St. Patrick's Day

Green beer on St. Patrick’s Day! All the pubs will be serving it, but if you decide to have your own party, how do you make your beer green for St. Patrick’s Day?

  • To turn beer green, you can use either blue or green food coloring
  • For a shamrock green beer color, use blue dye, especially if you are serving light or yellow beers
  • For a bright lime green beer color, use green food dye
  • If you’re not sure what color to use, food coloring is inexpensive, so you can buy both colors and experiment to get the color you want for the party
  • No stirring will be required if you add 2-3 drops of dye to the bottom of your mug before you pour the beer
  • For kegs, it’s almost impossible to dye the beer in the keg, so you should put the dye in each cup as you pour each beer (designate one person to control the dye so it doesn’t end up where you don’t want it)
  • Be careful with the dye as it can color more than your beer if you’re not careful

13 million pints of Guinness are served on St. Patrick’s Day, more than double a normal day. What beer will you be serving?

Why Green for St. Patrick’s Day?

Why Green on St Patricks Day

St. Patrick’s Day falls on March 17th every year (supposedly the day he died) in honor of St. Patrick himself. But do you know why green is the color of St. Patrick’s Day?

Wearing of the green traces back to when Ireland was separated and the Catholics lived on the “green side” and the Protestants lived on the “orange side.” The Irish flag is green, orange and white. Green represents the catholic side of Ireland, orange the Protestants and white represents those where were neutral and were composed of the descendants of the Celts.

So why do everything up green on St. Patrick’s Day? Because the term “saint” is more a Catholic term than a Protestant one, the green of the Irish flag represents the Catholics, and that’s why green is the color for St. Patrick’s Day!
