Beer is synonymous with Germany. The Germans gave us the Purity Laws, steins, Oktoberfest, and a bunch of great beers. Dusseldorf, Munich, Cologne, and Berlin are all famous for their local beers. Given this background, it was only a matter of time before Pope Benedict XVI, who is German, was brewed his own beer.

A few months ago, the Brewhouse Suedstern in Berlin brewed a pilsner called Pabst Pils Bier (which translates to Pope Pilsner Beer). A regular pilsner, however, simply would not suffice for His Holiness. The brewers serenaded the brew with Gregorian Chant played through a boom box "...by the light of a new moon." What a great excuse for a late night party at the brewery.
There's no report on whether the Pontiff liked or even tried the beer, but I would love to sample one of the bottles.
