The Oldest Alcohol known to man – Mead!

We stopped at the Feisty Mead booth at the 2022 Ohio Celtic Festival in Painesville just east of Cleveland. Mead is a drink more similar to beer and wine than hard liquors. Variations can resemble cider or beer or, as in the case of Feisty Mead, more like wine. The alcohol content is a little over 13% and they have a variety of flavorings and spices. Brian from Feisty Mead told us that mead is the oldest alcohol known to man primarily because it’s so easy to make.
