I will admit. I really wanted to try mead after I started playing the elder scrolls. I drink it while playing... I'm such a nerd

I'd wager most of us on this thread drink or have drunk mead while playing any one of the games in the elder scrolls. :-D

If we do come up with a Skyrim inspired mead, I feel it should be called honningbrew mead.

I wonder how many non brewers will try mead because of this game.

I have to admit, this game did cause a little inspiration to brew my own. If my attempts turn into success, I might give the junipers a try.

Nice Horn!! Did you make it?

When you drink mead from a horn, it results in an overwhelming urge to rape and pillage!!

Take care when purchasing a horn-

They can be unsealed (not good to drink from)
Sealed with synthetic resins (good to drink cold and hot drinks from, also spirits)
Natural beeswax (only drink cooler beverages from these)

They also hold more liquid than it may seem.

Fun to drink from, but SWMBO and I only use them during special occasions- a big stein can be set down on a table without spilling anything.

Happy pillaging

Edit...

Since this got off-topic, I figured I'd add something to bring it back...
I'm not sure I'd add juniper berries to mead unless I really liked the way gin tastes.

This is pretty awesome and funny, because Skyrim is the reason I got back into drinking mead. I tried some mead once, and I wasn't too keen on it... Chaucer's, I think.

My bro in law actually inspired me to start making my own stuff. But I do drink mead while playing skyrim. I love to drink it warm, mulled over an orange slice and a cinnamon stick.
