In his earliest Minoan form, Dionysus is associated with honey beer or mead. Both honey and grab juice become images of Dionysus because they ferment. When honey ferments what has rotted comes back to life by bubbling up and in this way its spirit survives. You drink the ‘spirit’ and it comes to life in a new body. The god becomes reconstituted.
