Cape May Brewing Company to Release a Pope Inspired Beer

CAPE MAY - To commemorate Pope Francis’ visit to Philadelphia this September, Cape May Brewing Company (CMBC) is releasing a beer called #YOPO, which stands for ‘You Only Pope Once.’
The pale ale contains an unholy amount of hops – about three pounds per barrel. This amounts to nine varieties, including Simcoe and Citra, which were named “winners” in a recent report from the Brewers Association for being types most lusted after by craft beer makers.
“The final product pairs great with a nice cut of Argentinean beef,” said Justin Vitti, CMBC sales rep.
#YOPO will be available at the Cape May Brewing Company tasting room beginning Monday, September 21st and in accounts throughout Philadelphia and New Jersey mid-September.
“We’re always looking for ways to push the envelope,” said Ryan Krill, President of CMBC. “At the same time, it’s never a gimmick we’re after. #YOPO will get a laugh from pop culture enthusiasts, sure, but it’s also a tasty and layered beer in its own right.”
