Matcha Green Beer

We partnered up with Seth Piracci, owner of The Starliner bar in Brooklyn, New York, to create a better-for-you alternative to green Guinness for your upcoming St. Patty’s Day party.

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon matcha, preferably ceremonial grade
  • 1 ounce water
  • 1/2 ounce lemon juice
  • 1 (12-oz.) bottle pilsner beer

How to Make It

  1. In a shallow bowl, mix matcha in water with a whisk until a thin layer of foam forms over the top and there are no clumps. Add lemon juice.
  2. Pour the matcha mixture into a pint glass, and SLOWLY top with beer to prevent the heavy foam from overflowing.
