Wood St. Kvass Brewday at East End, Scott rinsing the barrels, Mike filling the same
Mike and I have a long article on kvass in the current (Dec.) issue of Brew Your Own magazine on the kvass we brewed with Scott Smith at East End Brewing Co. in Pittsburgh. The article grew out of our side project BrewLocal, which is a kind of travelogue-apprenticeship-oral history-beertrip in which we spend time with our favorite small brewers assimilating ideas and techniques, and in general have a damn fine time. This article is a transition of that same spirit into print and we'd encourage folks to let Chris Colby, the editor at BYO, know if it's something you enjoy and would like to continue to see in print (really lay it on thick, let's bury the guy with e-mail). These trips are great fun, and wholly inspiring, and we're working hard on lining up some more good'ens.
