Mead is an alcoholic drink made with fermented honey and water. It is manufactured with yeast within a variety of containers, with the best of meads being made in wood casks. Its alcoholic content is comparable to that of wine.
In a World of Warcraft-themed party onboard the RIS Bouteina, Damar was asked to keep some mead for the people who left on an away mission consisting of a game show. However, Klingons hated mead, saying that it tasted like ill-preserved bloodwine. (RIS Bouteina: "Party Quest")
Mead was known to Cardassians and Romulans, although the origins of mead are disputed. Some claim that the drink originated from Earth, while the Pronhoulites also make the claim. Q'Naabians developed some yeast to make mead in two months rather than in several years. (RIS Bouteina: "Redshirt Computer")
