Boiler Gold beer went over so well in 2017 that Purdue is bringing a new beer again in 2018 – Boiler Black. 

It was announced on Wednesday that the new brew will be introduced this Saturday for the Homecoming game for the Boilermakers against #23 Boston College. 

“We designed the Boiler Black to have an approachable roasted character for fans of a darker full-flavored beer,” Lafayette People’s Brewing Company owner Chris Johnson said to the Journal & Courier

“I don’t want to get out in front of myself, here,” Daniels said in September 2017, after giving his seal of approval to Boiler Gold, an American pale ale produced by Lafayette’s People’s Brewing Co. “But maybe we need to have a Boiler Black next.”

Purdue President Mitch Daniels was the first to try Boiler Gold last fall. Looks like he called his shot.
