Here is what you need:

Nevermind I take back the tankard. I NEED one of those. That is beautiful. I have a feeling if I was drinking mead out of that I would be consumed with a desire to go kill and skin something and wear its pelt around my shoulders with its head as a helmet.

HAHAHA! Me too....

Anyone remember the name of the actual Mead sold at the meadery? I'm only level 6 so forgive me if there's more than one. I'll have to check tonight if I can, being a computer engineer sucks, work way too many hours... Someday I'll open that meadery...

An interesting side note:

Pagliarulo had a small bit of writer's block, and over one weekend, had brewed some mead (an alcoholic beverage created with fermented honey). "Maybe it was the process of brewing mead; maybe it was from drinking all that mead. Whatever the case, I can say that after a mead-filled weekend, Emil came into the office on Monday with the dovahkiin language completely mapped out."

I've seen Mead in Elder Scrolls games, going back to Morrowind and Arena. Also other fantasy RPGs such as Fable. It's good to see the drink of choice hasn't changed.

I want to brew a good Mead for my friends, we always call for a stein of Mead at the bar atleast once a night and think its hilarious.

Yeah, but it's the drink of choice in Skyrim.

I hear you about that damn overemployment problem. Not only do I have no time to brew, but i also have no time to play Skyrim! It makes me want to guzzle some mead, pick up my epic battle axe and go crazy on the civilized world! Too bad I don't have any dragon shouts that I can use yet......

In Skyrim it mentions that the dark elves in their homeland make very strong mead with red meat used in fermentation. Gross..... definitely don't want to try that one out. Oh and there are a quite a few meaderys in the game but most notably Honningbrew Meadery and the notorious Black Briar Meadery, for having connections with the thieves guild and the dark brotherhood, not to mention ridiculous prices! In thieves guild mission Maven Black Briar the head of the Black Briar family recruits you to shut down Honningbrew Meadery.

I hopped on the mead bandwagon because of skyrim! Actually, I had always wanted to give it a try, but skyrim was the push that made me remember it (as its EVERYWHERE in the game haha).

If I can perfect my recipe and enjoy the resulting brew, I'll be printing out "Dovahkiins Elixer" labels for the bottles when I do a bulk batch

I could just name it "Skooma"...:lol:

My mead consumption goes up whilst playing Skyrim. And thanks to that Stormcloak chap at the beginning plan on making some with Juniper.
