(Olympia, WA)  --  A bill that now has Governor Jay Inslee's signature legally defines mead, otherwise known as honey wine.  Under the measure, the fermented honey drink can now be sold and refilled in growlers from any place that already offers growlers for beer and cider.  Mead is produced by fermenting honey and water and, perhaps, adding spices, fruit, and hops.  Before the bill became law, mead was considered to be a type of wine and was assessed a levy by the Washington State Wine Commission, but it now no longer requires such a levy.
