Brewery Says New Pope Loves Its Beer

VATICAN CITY, ROME -- A German brewery is enjoying new success following a label change, and a "thumbs-up" from a high-profile fan of its beer, German native Pope Benedict XVI.

The Stuttgart brewery "Stuttgarter Hofbreau" had been struggling to sell its wheat beer until a label-change turned business around. Then, Pope Benedict XVI, formerly Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, reportedly gave his approval to the new brand name.

The brewery sent a beer truck to Rome this past weekend to deliver 700 liters, or 185 U.S. gallons of beer to Pope Benedict XVI.

Sent that little snippet off to the local PP who has had some dealings with Ratzinger in recent years. Apparently the man doesn't drink, had one celebratory mouthful of champagne when he won the vote.
I guess there's plenty of Friar Tuck types in the Vatican who'll knock the 700L off mighty quick.
