It Might Actually Make Your Insides Turn to Gold!

Beer. Liquid bread. Nectar of the gods. Liquid courage.

You could probably call my husband and I avid beer drinkers. We even have started brewing our own beer. Yes, if you stay in our guest bedroom, you can open the closet door and have almost 100 beers at your choosing. When we started brewing, the brewer man at the brew store told my husband he needed 50 empty beer bottles, so once the brewed beer was done fermenting it could be bottled to condition. My husband asked the store owner (we affectionately call him Doug the Brewer) if he had any empty bottles for sale. Doug was appalled and said, "Man, you have three weeks, drink some beer!" So needless to say we started drinking beer like crazy, thinking it would take a long time to empty 50 bottles of beer. We had it covered plus some between the two of us.

Anyways, we like to try new, interesting beers. A friend of ours told us about a beer called Midas Touch. It is brewed by Dogfish Head. So what makes this beer so special? Dogfish Head claims that the recipe used to brew this particular beer is the oldest fermented beverage in the world. Found in the tomb of King Midas, this 2700 year old brew is a mix of beer, mead, and wine.


It is absolutely delectable! Served in a wine glass, it is sweet, delicious, and elegant. I recommend you find this beer and try it! It sure does taste like the nectar of the gods, if there even is such a thing.
