    У вас есть безалкогольный квас?


    BTW, Kvas is a non-alcoholic drink.

    i think kvas has a little bit of alcohol in it but it would be a tiny percentage if anything, not even 1. You cant tell

    Yep, there's some alcohol in it, but a lot less than 1%. 0.1%? Probly even less. Not more than in kefir. Anyway, it's considered non-alcoholic so there's no "alcohol-free" kvas.

    Why the hell should it suck? Kvas contains no more alcohol than anything that grows naturally. (Are you aware of the fact that EVERYTHING contains alcohol in microscopic quantities?) Cows milk contains MORE alcohol than kvas.

    Yea I left. But I got the kvass. And no thanks to you!

    I got four liters in some very crowded deli in Brighton Beach, New York. All I did was read KBAC and pay for it without a word. But I did ask a lady "Vi gavaretye pa-ingliskii?" so I could ask her if the kvas was non-alcoholic (as I'm under 21). She said "nu" which I realize is a Russian word but I think she was trying to pronounce "no". Well whatever. That's my life.

    ну (nu) means: "well..."
    So obviously she didn't speak it that well

    "Ну" also means agreement, and not very polite.
