What is a Boilermaker?

The Boilermaker drink is the classic combo of beer and whiskey. There are many origin stories behind the name, with the most popular explanation linking it to the locomotive workers of the 1800s who were known as “boilermakers.” At the end of a shift, they’d head to the bar where they’d order a beer and a shot of whiskey. This timeless pairing can be served with a variety of beers and enjoyed by sipping one after the other – preferably whiskey first. The flavors of the beer and whiskey complement each other and offer a distinct cocktail experience.
