CINCINNATI (WKRC) — An Ohio man decided to give up everything but beer for Lent again, and he's using it to raise money for charity.

Del Hall, the co-owner of Ohio's 16 Lots Brewing Company, began his all-beer diet in 2019 over the 40-day fast. Not only did he lose 40 pounds, but Hall says that he felt great in the process. Ever since, Hall decided to make the fast his tradition, but he began to add a goal to his unusual diet in 2020: raising money for charity while also losing weight.

According to his GoFundMe page from 2020, Hall lost 50 pounds and raised $10,000 for a charity during the pandemic.

While many worry about his health over the 40 days, Hall has said in the past that he consulted his doctor about the choice.

"She said, 'You're an idiot if you do this,' but she knows how strong-willed I am," Hall said. "Once she knew I was determined to see this through, she recommended I take multi-vitamins, stay hydrated, and she told me not to do anything stupid."

Hall says that he will also drink water to stay hydrated, but all of his calories will come from beer.

This year, Hall is raising money for the Ken Anderson Alliance, a nonprofit organization that helps adults with disabilities find work and other opportunities, a cause personal to him.

According to the website where people can donate, Hall has a daughter with special needs and saw this as "a great opportunity to conduct his fast while supporting KAA."
