Honey Mead
What's the difference between beer and wine? Where do mead and sake fit in?

The definitions I like to use are:
If the primary fermentables are from a grain, it's beer.
If the primary fermentables are from a fruit, it's wine.
If the primary fermentables are from honey, it's mead.

So, I put mead in its own category, and sake would be a beer. Who agrees/disagrees?

As a fermented grain beverage, sake is more like beer than wine, which is typically made from fruit. Whiskey would not be considered a beer because it undergoes the further process of distillation, as Paul Gatza, director of the Institute for Brewing Studies in Boulder, Colorado, points out.
One difference between sake and beer, Gatza adds, is that the fermentation of sake involves not only yeast but also a mold known as koji. And sake is not brewed; instead, the rice is steamed. Newly steamed rice is added to a fermenting mixture in stages.
