Elmus' Mead is a miscellaneous quest in The Elder Scrolls V: Dragonborn.


Speak to Elmus at Bujold's Retreat and ask if there is anything that can be done to make living in exile more bearable. He replies with:

Well, the easy answer, of course. Mead! Actually, now that I think of it, I have been missing the Ashfire. It's a special brew that we make at Thirsk. If you could... somehow... get up there and grab a bottle, I'd be a long way towards forgetting how miserable it is down here.

This will start the objective: "Bring Elmus a bottle of Ashfire Mead from Thirsk."


Travel to the Thirsk Mead Hall. Several Rieklings live here but they are not hostile. Ashfire Mead can be located near a few mead barrels within the hall. Pick a bottle up and travel back to Bujold's Retreat.

Upon receiving the mead to Elmus, he will excitedly say "Oh, that's the stuff all right. You're a good friend to Thirsk, and to me. I thank you." and rewards the Dragonborn with a leveled amount of gold.
