There is a lot more to the Color of Beer than you Think!
Welcome to a Website Dedicated to "Beer Color"



This website will always be a work in progress!

 

News -
bulletThe BCR - Beer Color Reference has been translated into: Polish, King's English (UK, Australia etc.) Spanish and soon will be available in French. Then German. (thank you - Raf, Mark, Alfredo y Pedro, and Emilie)
bulletPlaying card sized "Brewery Guides" matched to measured beer color samples from the past 10 years are available as a set or individually. I am planning of measuring specific samples for these cards again this summer. Please remember my expression that there can be  many actual colors for a given SRM.
bulletHouse Cleaning - There are extras of many of the custom made BCR and BCR1.97 References. Replacements and extras are available at half price (or less!)
bulletPresently working on translating CAMRA discriptions.

Importance of a Common Background
and a transparent color guide.

This month I have chosen an Adelson type illusion that uses the yellow-red colors of beer and the blue colors used to evaluate "beer color". You have probably surmised that I am going to tell you that these birds are of identical color - and this is true! If you have a color "picker" or "chooser" on your computer drag it over the image and "see" for yourself. Otherwise block out the background using a piece of paper with small holes in it and see that the two peahens are the same.
