After having read about it, and seen it referred to in movies, as well as hearing about it at assorted ren-fests, I finally got around to trying mead.
Mead is wine made of fermented honey.
All I can say is, WOW! That's GOOD! I can't wait to try it hot, with a spice packet steeped in it!

Take this advice from a mead maker; the best tasting mead is made with additional ingredients, especially fruits and/or spices. If you can get a hold of a good grape, apple, or raspberry mead, or mead with cinnamon or ginger then you'll be in heaven.
Also, mead is reported to be an aphrodisiac and I believe from personal experience that theory has merit.

(There is no beer in heaven. That is why we drink it here.)
