Mead is an alcoholic beverage created when honey and water ferment.
Remnants of mead have been found in vessels dating to nearly 8,000 B.C., and evidence points to its consumption in ancient China, India, Egypt, Greece and beyond.
The retro beverage got a boost from "Game of Thrones."
According to Tampa’s Garagiste Meadery, within 24 hours of GoT mentioning mead, their social media accounts gained hundreds of new followers.
During the 2018 Super Bowl, they ran a Bud Light ad making fun of mead. The cost that year for a 30-second ad was around $5 million.

According to the Brewers Association, around 1.1 million Americans were homebrewing beer in 2017.
All it takes to brew mead is honey, water and yeast.
Though all mead is made from honey, its flavor can range from being dry and sweet to bold and intense.
