What drinks can be paired to a particular legend or myth?

We all know that that many people drink to the legendary person of St Patrick. But what I am interested in is in knowing if there are any drinks associated (paired) with a particular legend or myth (Christian or otherwise) and not simply to an historic or legendary person in some general sense. In other words, the pairing must associated to a particular event within a legend or myth.

I am not willing to include folklore at the moment!

  • Are we talking specific drinks? Or more like legends associated with drinking? The 8 druken gods of chinese druken boxing (rice wine)... or even lengendary drinks? Nectar was the drink of the greek gods... Jun 8, 2017 at 0:48
  • @ModernApostles I am talking specific drinks.

1 Answer 1


Judaeo-Christian, Greek and Roman mythologies have links to wine. Pastafarians have a goat that gives beer from it's udder. Norsk myhtology references mead.

And then you can always read articles from the Lords of the Drinks.
