Shakespeare talks about people drinking mead. It was an alcoholic drink made from honey and water which was fermented with yeast. I'm sure the most common drink was water though. Actually I thought water was very dangerous at those times, so it was only drunk if desperate. True with the mead though! Thanks!

Yes they did. Even children drank alcohol! Everyone drank alcohol and spirits in Tudor times because the local river was too polluted with rotten food and waste.
