Mead is a fermented honey wine and hops is not part of the normal brewing process for it. Metheglyn is a type of mead that is infused with herbs and spices (mint or cloves, for example) for flavor, but (again) hops is not normally used. Hops is used in brewing beers (as a general term), and there are beers made out of honey, but honey beer and mead are two very different critters.

Soooo, in a fantasy world with giant squids living ground, an army of undead nearly destroying the world, and evolved-pigs live along side humans ... you're arguing about the semantics of mead and hops? ....right, check. Just wanted to make sure.
Mead is so tasty.

Glad to see I wasn't the only one who noticed and was bothered by that.
