A Cincinnati, Ohio man has decided to walk a different path this Lenten season. Instead of giving up swearing, or sweets, Del Hall has decided to drink nothing but beer for forty days.
Del Hall, a Cincinnati native, has taken the Christian observance of Lent, where people usually give up eating chocolate or drinking soda for about 40 days leading up to Easter, to a whole new level by committing to only drinking beer.
This man is a saint, and we should build many churches in his honor.
As he’s nearing the end of his all-beer diet (Easter is on Sunday, April 17), Hall has somehow lost weight over the last month — 25 pounds to be exact.
“It’s a way to get back into a healthy mindset, to look at food in a healthy way,” Hall told WCPO. “I decided I’m going to turn this into a beer diet to show people that you can use beer in a healthy way and not vilify it as this evil alcohol.”
Wait, he LOST twenty-five pounds drinking beer? “KYLE, BRING ME A SIX-PACK!”
Hall is using his all-beer diet to give back by raising money for the Ken Anderson Alliance, a nonprofit that provides opportunities for adults with disabilities. They’ve raised $5,000 so far this year, and is aiming to raise $25,000 in total by the end of the all-beer diet with a special bar crawl on April 24.
Well, if nothing else, Hall is doing this for the right reasons. Raising money for those with disabilities and following the – albeit unorthodox – Lenten tradition.
