KVASS

I've read about it and I've heard the rumors of KVASS ("Russian Cola") being brewed in Pittsburg and Brooklyn but I am unable to find any.

Does anyone have an opiion about this brew, or better yet, a place to procure such beverage?

I've never tried it myself, strangely enough given all the brewing I've done and all the time I've spent living in Russia and immediate environs... but I've never had the opportunity and the desire at the same time.

If you want to find it, look in Eastern European markets like the one in this thread. Scroll down for pictures of bottles of it on shelves.

You can find kvass if you go to Brooklyn and look in the right (read: Russian) stores. I'm not a huge fan, so I can't give you specifics at the moment. I might be able to get suggestions from someone for you.

As for Pittsburgh, it was true. East End Brewing did a special brewing with Tom Baker from (what was) Heavyweight Brewing two times, in fall of 2006 and 2007. It's not available anymore, though, since it was draft only and they haven't brewed it since. You can read about it if you like, though: clicky.

Hope that helps.

Hey, I heard recently that East End is going to re-release their kvass. You should try and contact them and see when.
