What is mead?
It's been quickly gaining popularity. But what is it? At the core it is wine, fermented with honey instead of grapes or other sugars.
Mead, like wine, can have many different characteristics. Its characteristics can be:
Sweet. Dry. Fruit. Tannins. Oak. Spice.
You name it. There's pretty much a mead for anyone. And just because you tried it once at a RenFest once and didn't like it, doesn't mean you shouldn't give it another try! :)
