    Want to make green beer? It’s actually pretty easy -- just add food coloring! Pick a light brew so you don’t have to empty a whole bottle (three to five drops should do it for most brews.) Have a more yellow-based beer (we’re looking at you, Hoegaarden)? Add a bit of blue food coloring. Don’t want to deal with it? Buy an Irish brew or a green-bottled beer, and drink up.
