Beer Soup

In keeping with the motto "Liquida non frangunt ieiunium" (liquids do not break the fast), beer soup became one of the favorite dishes of the Christian Lenten season. Strictly speaking, Christians are not allowed to consume meat or alcohol after Ash Wednesday, but because beer was considered a staple in former times, it was not affected by the ban on alcohol. Consequently, beer soup was a popular dish, one served to adults and children alike.
