Beaver Kvass

Brewed by Beaver Brewing Company
Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania USA
1.75% Traditional Ale | 5 Ratings | 5 IBU |
Chances are you have never heard of or had the chance to drink a KVASS? Well it’s only the #1 malted beverage sold by street vendors in Russia!

What makes KVASS Unique? Well Bread is the main ingredient by weight (other than water). This recipe mirrors one that originated around 950 AD around the time of Peter the Great in Russia.

The only difference is we add small amounts of malted barley and the lowest amount of hops that I can…if I don’t I can’t legally sell it!

Other ingredients from this ancient recipe include raisins and lemon peel. This will more than likely be sold in Growlers only at the brewery since I can’t imagine a bar wanting this on tap! So if you want a unique experience swing over to try an ancient beer!

The alcohol content is very low compared to most beers (1.5% -2% ABV).

Ingredients: Bread (LOTS of it), 2-Row Barley, Wheat Malt, Lemon Juice & Peel, Raisins.

Hops: Fuggles and Hallertau. IBU’s: 5

HCU: 3
