An Idea for Next Year’s Lent

17th-Century Catholic Monks invented an all-beer diet for Lent

An Idea for Next Year’s Lent

In 1634, the Paulaner monks of Neudeck ob der Au invented a beer so malty and thick that they nicknamed it “liquid bread.” For the entire 46 days of Lent they drank only this beer and water. It was believed that the beer would cleanse the body and soul in preparation for Easter. This beer was the original Doppelbock and is sold under the name Paulaner Salvator.
