We always knew Midas was a star!

Thu, 11/10/2011 - 11:30am

We're proud to announce that our original ancient ale, Midas Touch, has won a medal at Europe's largest beer competition, the European Beer Star.

Midas Touch was one of 1,113 beers from 39 countries competing in this year's Beer Star, and it captured bronze in the Specialty Honey category.

European Beer Star: If you squint, you can see Midas front and center! If you squint, you can see Midas front and center!

Released in 1999, the year-round Midas Touch was our first swing at reviving ancient brewing traditions. The recipe is based on molecular evidence found in the Turkish tomb of King Midas and includes white Muscat grapes, saffron and -- of course -- honey!

Somewhere between wine and mead, this sweet yet dry ale will please the chardonnay and beer drinker alike.

Cheers to the Beer Star judges!
