How to Make Red Beer?

There’s nothing quite like a cold, refreshing beer. But what if you want to mix things up a bit and try something new? Enter red beer!

This brew is easy to make, flavorful, and pairs great with food. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to make red beer.

Overview of Red Beer

Red beer is simply beer mixed with fruit juice or flavored syrup that gives it a hint of sweetness. The result is a delicious beverage that can be enjoyed at parties or social gatherings. It’s sure to be a hit with your friends and family!

Ingredients: What You’ll Need To Make Red Beer

Making red beer is pretty simple, all you’ll need is:

  • A light-colored lager
  • Your favorite flavor of syrup or juice
  • Flavoring agent (cinnamon, orange peel, etc.)
  • Ice cubes for cooling and straining out particles

Step 1: Preparing the Beer and Add the Juice

Start by pouring the lager into a pitcher. Then add the juice or syrup of your choice – this will provide sweetness and flavor.

You’ll want to mix it well so that all the ingredients are blended together evenly.

Finally, add some ice cubes – this will help cool down the drink quickly and help keep it cold while you’re preparing it.

Step 2: Choosing a Flavoring Agent and Temperature

The next step is choosing what type of flavoring agent you want to use in your red beer. This could be anything from cinnamon sticks, orange peels, vanilla extract, or even honey.

Whatever flavoring agent you choose should be added after the juice/syrup has been combined with the lager, as it won’t have much effect if added first.

You should also take into account the temperature; if you use hot flavors like ginger or chili powder they will require higher temperatures than icy flavors like mint or lemonade concentrate.

Step 3: Adding the Flavoring and Straining Out Particles

Now that you’ve decided on your flavoring agent, it’s time to add it to the drink. Add it slowly while stirring constantly – this will ensure an even distribution of flavor throughout your drink without any nasty chunks or particles floating around in your glass!

Then let it sit for 5-10 minutes so that all the flavors can combine nicely before straining out any particles left over from adding too much flavoring (or ice cubes).

Step 4: Cooling and Storing The Red Beer

Once everything has been combined together nicely, let it cool down for 15-20 minutes before serving – this will ensure that none of the ingredients separate when cooled down too quickly in an ice bath (which can happen if not done properly).

Finally, store any leftover red beer in an airtight container for later consumption! If stored correctly, it should last for up to 3 days in a refrigerator at optimal temperatures (32-35 °F).


Making red beer is quick and easy! All you need is a light lager (or other light ale), some fruit juice/syrup of choice plus your favorite flavoring agent(s).

Once everything has been mixed together nicely – add some ice cubes to cool down quickly – then strain out any remaining particles before storing away in an airtight container for later consumption. Enjoy!
