    This is pretty cool. A Benedictine monastery in San Benedetto, Italy is providing beer for the papal conclave! There is an official beer. Now where can I get some?

    That one is a very young beer, definitely not aged.

    Shouldn't it be a smoked beer?

    Brother Francis looks just like this guy working the door at my favorite bar. Come in with a fake ID, 15 Hail Mary's, 5 Our Father's...

    That does make sense since he's from Bavaria and used to be the Archbishop of Munich and Freising.

    I thank you for posting this! As one of the few Italian craft beer advocates here, it is great to see this type of beer news there be known! A beautiful town in Umbria! :D

  24. Huh... I would have thought the Pope would prefer Arrogant Bastard.

    LOL! If I ever got a hold of that, I'd be keeping the bottle. Looks like Beer Here likes to make some nice labels, I googled that beer and this turned up too:


    Edit: Actually just image search their labels, and there are a lot of fun ones.
