If you’ve enjoyed a pint of Boiler Gold, you can probably make a good guess about what’s whirling away in this photo.

Boiler Black, the second Purdue-branded beer, rolled out of the canning line just in time for Homecoming 2018 and the beginning of Purdue’s 150 Years of Giant Leaps celebration, commemorating the University’s 150-year legacy. Both Boiler Gold and the darker Boiler Black were born out of a partnership between the Department of Food Science and Lafayette-based People’s Brewing Company. The beers were developed using capabilities of the department’s Hops and Brewing Analysis Lab, and part of the proceeds are funneled back into the fermentation program at Purdue.
