Beer And Water For Lent, Nothing Else

This Is One Fast-inating Story

Many people have already given up something for Lent, but one Iowa man is swearing off all food for the 46 days between Ash Wednesday and Easter on April 24th… and drinking nothing but beer instead! The fast is inspired by a 300-year-old tradition among German monks, who brewed the specific kind of beer known as “liquid bread” to consume during Lent.  He plans to drink four beers per day, at about 300 calories and 6.7% alcohol each.
