MEAD


MEAD An alcoholic drink made by fermenting honey and water. The creators of the Norse myths considered mead superior to the usual beer and ale made by fermenting cereals flavored with hops drunk by ordinary people. In valhalla mead was supplied in a never-ending flow by the she-goat hei-drun, and the gods and heroes never lacked the heavenly brew.See also The Mead of Poetry, under odin.
