How about a plate of wings and a jug of mead?

Probably not, but one of history’s oldest alcoholic beverages is making a comeback of sorts, thanks in part to characters drinking a pint or two in the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling, as well as Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkien.

Mead – once known as the nectar of the gods – can be traced back almost 10-thousand years, and is made up of honey, water and yeast.

It was a popular drink before there was beer or wine.   

 A younger generation looking for more intriguing alcoholic beveridges is driving its current increase in consumption.
