Man Consumes Nothing But Beer and Water For Lent


They say if you had to you could live off beer, and an Iowa homebrewer and beer blogger named J. Wilson is putting that to the test by subsisting on nothing but 4 12oz glasses of doppelbock and water for 46 days between Ash Wednesday and Easter.

His inspiration for the stunt were stories about ancient German monks who brewed the big, hearty “liquid bread” beer during Lent for their own fasting rituals.

Wilson has put on 20 extra pounds in preparation for the fast and claims he doesn’t plan to get drunk at any point during this experiment. Though, as most of us know, even a little alcohol can go a long way on an empty stomach.
