This is what I found on FOXNEWS.COM:

Many people give up beer for Lent but one Ohio man is turning the tables — he’s planning not to consume anything else.

Del Hall, who works at Fifty West Brewing Company in Cincinnati, said he will only be drinking the alcoholic beverage until Easter Sunday. He is also giving up all food. Hall claims he is following the lead of monks in the 1600s, according to Idaho News.

“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,” he continued.

Hall said he is documenting his Lent beer diet on social media and will be tracking his weight.
