Here's something worth keeping an eye on.
Diary of a Part-time Monk chronicles the journey of a fellow who has committed to fasting on nothing but doppelbock and water for Lent. For those who don't know what doppelbock is, go pick up a bottle of Paulaner Salvator. It's a strong, malty beer from Germany. The fast is rooted in the medieval practice of German monks.
After 4 days he has lost 10 pounds, so I'm guessing it won't go the whole way, but here's hoping!
On a related note, Spring Beer Release is out in Ontario. Look out for Tree Double Hophead in particular.
