    Can you buy mead in booze stores? Me and a friend want to do this now and I want to try mead first and see if I like it :lol:

    And yes, we're both big Amon Amarth fans :lol:

    ^
    After some serious googling, it looks like Mead's pretty much considered a wine, and a reasonably common one at that. You should be able to find it at the liquor store and I'm hoping to pick some up myself. :yum:

    I found an online place in Canada that sells it. I ordered 2 bottles of sweet mead :metal: We're going to drink this while listening to Amon Amarth and wearing viking helmets. If all is good, then we're going to make some, but I think I'd invest in a carboy to make a bit more than a jug full :lol:

    Speaking as someone who refuses to drink alcohol other than mead, yes, you can find it at liquor stores - but you may have to look around a bit. I suggest checking places with greater selection first. When touring in California, a trip to a "Viking Liquors" resulted not in the hoped-for mead (I'm not the only member of the band who only drinks mead) but rather in a "what's mead?" from the staff.

    I just read on wikipedia that mead is a traditional beverage served with large quantities of MASSIVE FUCKING WIN.

    haha, here we call it hooch, we used to make it in jail (wait, no we didnt, and i have never been locked up:cool:) it takes a few days to be good and strong. be sure to burp it. as it fermants it will build up air. once a day you need to release the air. do it outside cuz it STINKS! we used garbage bags, raisins,sugar and bread. add water to the mix and tie it up, stash under you bunk and burp into the toilet once a day (c.o.s(corrections officers) know the smell) after about a week or 2 (the longer the better) filter through a sock or pillow case and drink up:hbang:

    There is no selection here. Booze can only be sold at government owned liquor stores, and there's only 2 in this city :lol: Can't run down to the local 7-11 and grab beer or anything here.

    You aren't a true viking warrior then. You still have a ways to go.
