Kvass - soft drink adverti?ement. 1959
Description: Artist S.Lapaev
Kvass is a traditional fermented Slavic beverage commonly made from rye bread, which is known in many Central and Eastern European countries". The color of the bread used contributes to the color of the resulting drink.
Kvass is classified as a "non-alcoholic" drink by Ukrainian, Russian, Lithuanian, Polish, Hungarian, and Romanian standards, as the alcohol content from fermentation is typically low (0.5–1.0% or 1–2 proof).
Rarely it may be flavored with fruits such as strawberries or raisins, or with herbs.
Kvass is especially popular in the successor states of Belarus, Russia and Ukraine.
In Russia, the drink is more popular than Coca-Cola.
