Much like the Ohio State Buckeyes, the Purdue Boilermakers were just begging to be included in the Edible Bracket. A boilermaker is apparently a “trained craftsman who produces steel fabrications from plates and sections” (weird mascot, no?), but it’s also a surprisingly delicious beer cocktail. Opinion differs on whether a boilermaker is a shot followed by a beer chaser, or whether the drink involves dropping the shot INTO the beer. We went with the latter, for dramatic effect, as demonstrated in the accompanying slideshow.
