Tried a kvass recently, old-school Eastern European "peasant" beer.

It's low alcohol, was typically made from rye bread! My maternal grandmother's last name was Kvasnicka, and some Czech - Slovak guy I met who claims to know about such things says that means my ancestors made this type of beer at some point in past. Don't know if that is true or not, but my grandmother's people did come from part of Czech that is near Poland. Who knows. Anyway, the beer was interesting. Not great, but not bad. Kinda like a weak wheat beer like a darker watered-down Blue Moon.
