Materials

Beer Candle
Glass container (Beer Mug)
Wick
Hot glue
Gel wax
Liquid  dye
Paraffin wax
   

Method

To make Beer candles, Paraffin wax is also needed along with the other basic materials of Gel candle making. Stick one end of the wick by a wick base or glue the wick to the base of a Beer mug. Suspend the wick vertically in the container by tying it to a split cane or a toothpick kept across the beer mug.

Melt enough gel wax in a double boiler over a low heat. Add dye - Yellow and gold, until a nice beer color is obtained. Pour the wax into the beer glass, leaving some space on top of the glass and keep it for setting. 

Melt the paraffin wax and when the wax starts solidifying, beat it with a fork or an egg beater until it froths up into a foam. Now using the fork apply the froth on top of the gel candle which is already made. Allow some foam to run over the side for more realism. Make sure the wick is still centered, and allow to cool.

Alternative method to  add a foamy  head to the candle:  add little white crayons to a small amount of melted gel. Stir well and pour over the hardened first layer. Stir with wooden stick or spoon to create bubbles and pour over the hardened layer.
