HAD 96: Mead

Hear ye, hear ye! Lords and Ladies of the drink, we gather together today to discuss that sweetest of beverages, Mead! Okay, I can’t keep this up, and it’s a disservice to mead to label it a just a thing for Renaissance fairs. It’s more than just something to wash giant turkey legs down . . . now I’m hungry. Focus Bob, because it’s time to talk about that oldest of alcohols, and have a drink.

It's a gustatory analog to Miles' masterpiece.
