For those over 21 looking for a truly golden experience, the Café will offer Dogfish Head Brewery’s award-winning Midas Touch beer. Developed in collaboration with Dr. Patrick McGovern, Scientific Director of the Penn Museum’s Biomolecular Archaeology Project, the Midas Touch is a recreation of what archaeologists found in the tomb of King Midas’ father: residue from a beverage that was unique blend of wine, beer, and honey mead.
