Bonus: drink your mead like a king!
“The number one vessel that you’d drink mead from is called a ‘mazer cup': a small, flat cup with two handles on either side of it," explained Webber. And while that goblet is certainly magnificent, there's another option you should consider: the mead horn.
"It gives it that Old World Viking feel," conceded Webber. "But for your average folks that aren’t into Renaissance culture, they’re not interested.” While I vehemently disagree, the truth is that no matter which type of vessel you choose for quaffing, you'll be drinking the craft booze of ancient kings. And that's something worth getting obsessed over.
