Some guys give up beer for Lent. Other guys…. [Updated]

An Illinois weekly newspaper editor is living on beer and water in the tradition (myth?) of those German monks centuries ago who never ate during Lent and, for the most part, so far, so good.  Illuminator Doppelbock is the beer of choice.

Thanks to Scoats for the tip.

UPDATE: In the interest of accuracy and after extensive research, I acknowledge it to be true that, as he almost but not quite complains in a Comment below, Carl P sent me an email with a link to these story way back at the beginning of Lent. I guess I’ll have to remove his name from my Spam Filter.
