Mead is for unemployed theatre majors and bad poets and is only appropriate whenconsumed at a jousting match.

Unless you make your own.

I baste the turkey in the same honey mead my wife makes. Fuckin' delicious.

Does anyone who drinks mead not also make it?

Dude Bellingham has two different mead labels.

I've only met people who make it. Maybe I run in weird circles. Yes. I do after ten seconds of retroflection

But don't you think most of the customers have at least tried making their own?

It's way simpler than beer, and even if it's bad at first it is usually drinkable once it has been forgotten in a closet.

It's entirely possible. That said, my roommate cannot fathom the creation of coffee without invoking Folger's Crystals and he's watched me and our other roommate make coffee no less than four different ways.

Not all consumers are producers.

It's never occurred to me to try and cook with it. Very interesting.

undrinkable mead is great for cooking with.
