...anyone here tried it? Or made it themselves? I tried it for the first time on Saturday night when a woman from church offered me some (home-made!) after Great Vespers on Saturday.

For those who don't know, kvass is a Russian drink made with bread (usually stale) - typically pumpernickel or rye, soaked in water and with sugar and yeast added, and allowed to ferment for 5 days or so. It typically has an alcohol content similar to near-beer (around 0.5% ABV), but it can also have an alcohol content as high as light beer. Sometimes it's got hops, and raisins or other fruit in it.

You can find it on street corners in the summer in most major Russian and Ukrainian cities.

I believe, O Lord, and I confess, that You are truly the Christ, the Son of the Living God, who came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the chief...
~ Ryan Isaac

Today the nature of the waters is sanctified,
The Jordan bursts forth and turns back the flood of its streams,
Seeing the Master wash Himself.

To the voice of one crying in the wilderness,
Prepare ye the way of the Lord,
You came, O Lord, taking the form of a servant,
Asking for baptism though you have no sin.
The waters saw You and were afraid.
The Forerunner began to tremble and cried out, saying:
How shall the lampstand illumine the Light?
How shall the servant lay hands upon the Master?
Sanctify both me and the waters, O Savior,
Who takes away the sins of the world.

- Stikhera from the Great Blessing of the Waters at Theophany (the Baptism of the Lord)
