Tasting a Special Drink from the Streets of Eastern Europe
For centuries, people in many Eastern European countries, have been drinking “Kvass” -- which translates into English as ‘bread drink’.
Kvass is a mildly alcoholic drink made from fermented rye bread and it is often flavoured with herbs like mint or fruits like strawberries. During the hot summer months on streets in Russia, Belarus and Poland, vendors wheel around large yellow barrels, selling the brewed drink.
