A Kvass - a traditional, fermented Eastern-European beverage made with rye bread - is a style not often seen in the North American craft beer industry. Unlike regular beer, which uses brewing grain to produce sugar during fermentation, the Kvass uses bread! For this brew, we used rye bread from the Toronto bakery, Blackbird Baking Co!
This light bodied, rye beer has notes of sultana raisins, iced americano and cranberry tea - complimented by a subtle, light smokiness.
Bready with a dark fruit sweetness, this low ABV Kvass is truly a breakfast beer if there ever was one!
