Beer on day of fasting
#17
If one studies history, you'll see that beer, ale and the like are very popular for drinking. This was for health purposes; water was highly polluted and dangerous. This is why you rarely see anyone drinking pure water in history in cities. Remember when Jesus was given vinegar during the crucifixion? It sounds weird to us now, but that was actually the standard drink for the Roman army (et al). It was called posca.

So, keep that in mind when following examples. If those monks had fresh clean water available, I think they'd drink that instead.
