The Ultimate Tailgating Weapon: Pope Benedict Beer

In a story far, far, far too perfect to be ignored by a respectable Notre Dame football blogger, a Bavarian brewery has just released a new, profoundly awesome pope-themed brew. Papst Beer, as it is called, is brewed in Mainz, Germany to commemorate Pope Benedict XIV's return to his hometown on a European tour.

This is an absolute must-have at any respectable Notre Dame tailgate. Beg, borrow, steal, and pay any amount of money to fly some of this out to South Bend. You will be a tailgating legend.

You can order it off the brewer's web site.

Is Pabst a suitable substitute?

I'm willing to front anyone the Euros to buy me a case of Papal tall-boys and ship them to our office.

Do I want to enjoy a few of these in LA?
Is this beer Catholic?

Jesus. Really. Jesus.

But seriously, that beer is totally Catholic. It's even guilty about getting people loaded. It also probably will find itself in the hands of minors.

Alright, those were two tasteless remarks about religion. Sounds like enough for one comment.

Only one of those two remarks was tasteless.

Even though he's German, ol' Benedict will probably find some reason to thrown the book at this effort.

John XXIII? Paul VI? JP I? Now them's some beer drinkin' boys.

Reminescent of a cheer we had when I was at ND back in the early 60's:

"Up the long ladder
Down the short rope
Long live the Irish
and God save the pope
