Important Notes

While, Matcha powder is a great alternative as well. We wouldn’t recommend using Matcha powder because the resulting color won’t be as vibrant as the two methods we tried.

Spirulina is a great source of protein and it’s a more natural approach to coloring your beer. However, the con with using the Spirulina method is it might smell a bit like seaweed, which can be off putting. However, the taste remains pretty much intact.

While, the food coloring method for your green beer leaves you with a vibrant color. Something to consider is that it’s not the most natural/organic way to color your beer.
