The Easter Bunny is good to my husband and I because not only does he bring us Easter Baskets filled with our favorite sweet treats, but he also hides Easter Beer Eggs around our apartment for us to find on Easter morning!
I couldn’t believe the Easter Bunny was that creative, but when we peered around the corner of our bedroom door, we saw several Easter Beer Eggs hidden around our living room! Thank you Easter Bunny for bringing us our favorite beer!
All kidding aside, these Easter Beer Eggs are the perfect way to have some fun at any “adult” Easter lunch, party or dinner. They are super easy to make and you’ll have fun getting creative and decorating the eggs. Plus, there are no annoying egg dying kits needed for these Easter Beer Eggs!
To get started, pickup a case of your favorite beer and a separate case of your favorite pop (yes, you read that correctly, it is POP). The number of adults at your party will determine the number of cans you will need. When you get home, put the beer in the fridge, but be sure to keep the pop at room temperature. No one likes warm beer, so that is why the beer will go in the fridge and the pop will stay at room temperature. In addition to the cans of beer and pop, you’ll need several sheets of multi-colored construction paper and glue or double-sided tape!
Now comes the creative and fun part: let’s “dye” those Easter Beer Eggs!!! Since the construction paper will run or fall apart when it gets wet or when the cans begin to sweat, you will want to cover the room temperature pop cans (and not the beer). This way, you can hide your eggs early in the day and not have to worry about the beer going bad or getting warm. If you want to wrap the beer cans, just be sure to have ice cold frosted beer mugs available for guests, so they can chill their newly found beer!
Luckily when cut in half, standard sized construction paper is the exact height of the can, so they are super easy to wrap! With your glue or double-sided tape, glue/tape the ends of the construction paper around the can. You do not need to put any glue or tape on the can. Once your can is wrapped, cut lots of different shapes from the construction paper and decorate your Easter Egg Beer cans!
At your party, you have a couple of options on how to display these Easter Beer Eggs! Below, you will see I put decorated Easter Beer Eggs in a nice basket for display and then had the cold beer in the fridge.
What I like to do though, is hide the eggs around our apartment and then guests have to find the “eggs”! When they find an Easter Beer Egg, they turn it in for a nice cold beer or pour it into a chilly frosted mug! Trust me, your friends will have so much fun doing this! I also hide a “golden ticket” behind one of the covers and the person who finds that egg gets a special prize (normally a case of beer or Easter basket).
If this is for a kids party, you can use the same concept and have them either drink the pop or have them trade it in for a juice box!
Now “hop” to it and make those Easter Beer Eggs!
