A special beer for the anniversary

Students brew JubilaTUM

His recipe was developed especially for the anniversary of the Technical University of Munich (TUM): the amber-coloured export-beer JubilaTUM. Under the direction of Dr. Johannes Tippmann from TUM-Forschungsbrauerei, students of the Faculty of Brewing and Food Technology have developed the recipe in a competition. In spring it was produced in small margins at craft breweries and from now on it is served at all festivities in the jubilee year.

The JubilaTUM beer celebrating the 150th anniversary of the TUM is the result of a competition among students: After their lectures and seminars, 30 teams tried out, developed and finally submitted their recipes in their free time at "home cooking pots".

Employees of the Chair of Brewing and Beverage Technology have selected the eleven most promising. They were brewed in the research brewery of the TUM. All eleven types of beer underwent a classic beer tasting with trained testers. The colour, foam, clarity, smell and taste of the beers are put to the test.

Finally, the recipes of the two winning studio teams were crossed, resulting in the JubilaTUM: the result was an amber-coloured bottom-fermented export beer with a fine hop flavour and an original wort of 12.5 degrees Plato. It is served at all celebrations during the anniversary year. The TUM-Shop offers a limited edition for sale.
