New Jersey Brewery to Release Pope Francis-Inspired Beer

A Cape May brewery is releasing a limited edition beer to commemorate Pope Francis' visit to Philadelphia in September.

Cape May Brewing Co. co-owner Ryan Krill says his company is brewing 500 gallons of the pope-inspired beer, which will only be available on draft.

YOPO, or "You Only Pope Once," is a hoppy pale ale with 5.5 percent alcohol content.

Sales representative Justin Vitti says the beer pairs well with a nice cut of Argentinean beef — calling to mind the pontiff's home country.

Krill says the beer will get a laugh from pop culture enthusiasts, but it's also a tasty brew in its own right.

The beer will be available at the Jersey Shore brewery's tasting room along with watering holes throughout Philadelphia and New Jersey beginning Sept. 21.
