Man Vows to Fast on Beer During Lent

J Wilson, an American blogger and home brewer, has vowed to fast on nothing but beer for Lent, following the tradition of Bavarian monks:

Following the ancient tradition of Bavarian monks who brewed stronger beer during the Lenten fast in order to subsist on an almost entirely liquid diet, J Wilson will spend the 46 days of the Lenten period drinking only beer. The young man, who writes about beer on the internet and claims never to have done a Lenten fast in his life, will drink bockbier, which was originally brewed by the Paulaner monks in Munich.
