The mug is a placeable item which can hold many different kinds of drinks. To fill them with a drink, right click on the tap of a barrel of the drink that you want to fill the mug with and then either place it down on a solid block or drink it by holding down right click.

Right clicking on a placed mug will make you drink it instantly. Also, you can right-click an empty vessel with a full one in your hand, or vice versa to transport the fluids to and from each other.

Mugs can be found in very many structures (preferably such as the mead halls and taverns) or bought from traders, especially bartenders.
