And now for something completely different…

It would seem a commonplace to find someone who gave up beer for Lent. Here’s a completely different take: giving up everything BUT beer. Now why didn’t I think of that? See more about Mr Wilson’s “Beerfast” here.

    Mind you, I’ve heard of a Dominican or two who have had people asking if the ‘OP’ was to do with their bloodstream.

    OP is ‘Old Peculier’ (so spelt), a strong dark ale brewed by Theakston in Masham, Yorkshire; not quite the Doppelbock favoured by Mr Wilson, but he’s drinking a couple of 12oz bottles a day, whereas we would down at least four pints in a session. I posted on Mr Wilson’s website the blessing of beer from the Rituale Romanum, with the proviso that the holy water be used sparingly.
