Many people give up alcohol for Lent. There's a guy in Ohio doing the exact opposite!
Del Hall, an army veteran from Newtown, Ohio has decided to only drink beer for the 40 days of Lent and says there is actually precedent from monks in the 1600's for this "diet.
“Being master brewers, they decided they would take a popular style of beer in Germany, bock beer, make it extra hearty and that would be their liquid bread, and that’s what they call it,” Hall said. “So the monks in Bavaria, they would call doppelbock 'liquid bread,' and basically it would sustain them through the 46 days of Lent.”
