How long can a man survive on only beer?

I would love the actual science on this. I am assuming unlimited beer and no other adverse conditions? No other food or drink...not even water. What kind of beer would be best? Coors light? Low in calories and alcohol. Guinness high in calories but more dehydrating. Are we talking days, a month, or indefinitely? If it will kill you how would you go?
