You probably could use something like the hard lemonade recipe in the wine making forum and use 50% blueberry, and a couple pounds of DME instead of just the 1

Some guys in the local HBC brewed up some light ale and racked it onto some of that blue raspberry syrup (think snowcone syrup) and that sh*t was blue as all heck. The taste? Well.........

You all realize blueberries make beer purple right?

Remember that a lot of folks are sensitive to food coloring and will break out in rashes. So using it in beer seems a bit questionable to me since it adds nothing.

Wow, I didn't watch Star Trek but I'd definitely want a blue beer soon!

There used to be a sports bar in Milwaukee where they'd make the Miller Lite blue on Brewers Opening Day so I know it can be done. People wound up with blue tongues and blue teeth, though.
