Papal Ale

When it's time to relax, one pope stands clear.
If you've got the time, he's got the beer authentic Bavarian ale.

A Blessing of Beer From Rituale Romanum

Bless, O Lord, this creature beer, which thou hast deigned to produce from the fat of grain: that it may be a salutary remedy to the human race, and grant through the invocation of thy holy name; that, whoever shall drink it, may gain health in body and peace in soul. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Salutary Reminder: 
"The virtue of temperance disposes us to avoid every kind of excess: the abuse of food, alcohol, tobacco, or medicine. Those incur grave guilt who, by drunkenness or a love of speed, endanger their own and others' safety on the road, at sea, or in the air" (Catechism of the Catholic Church #2290).
