Arseniiivski Kvas

I love this stuff.

Live Arseniivski Kvas

What is Kvas? Wikipedia: “Kvass is a fermented beverage made from black or regular rye bread. The colour of the bread used contributes to the colour of the resulting drink. It is classified as a non-alcoholic drink by Russian standards, as the alcohol content from fermentation is typically less than 1.2%. Overall, the alcohol content is low (0.05% – 1.0%). It is often flavoured with fruits or herbs such as strawberries, raisins or mint. Kvass is also used for preparing a cold summertime soup called okroshka.

It is popular in Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, and other Eastern and Central European countries as well as in former Soviet states, such as Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, where one can see many kvass vendors in the streets.”


This brand is my favorite by far. Their website.

    Kvass (kali in Estonian) is also my favorite sugary drink. They brought back the real kvass about 4-5 years ago. It was the same stuff as they sold in Soviet times. After I heard that it has a light alcohol content I kind of figured out why I liked it as a kid :-D

      Ha! That’s funny. I also loved the stuff before learning of its light alcohol content, but this was just recently.
