Most people give up chocolate, cigarettes, or caffeine for Lent. There's a guy in Iowa that is giving up food and replacing it with beer. Talk about genius!
It's not just any beer, though. Wilson says he was researching Franciscan monks and found that they sometimes sustained themselves during Lent on a special, high-carb beer.
So he brewed some of that beer himself, and now he's going six weeks on four glasses per day.
